The armour reconnaissance battalion in the SS division Nordland fought in varied battlefields; from Ingermanland’s snow-clad hills, to the defence of the historic town of Narva. Then further over Latvia’s billowing landscape against the Soviet armoured thrusts that were threatening Riga. Later on, the battalion fought in the muddy trenches in Kurland and on the plains of Pomerania. Finally, in the year of 1945, it was to be pulled into, and exterminated, in the final battle of Brandenburg, the last desperate defence of the Chancellor’s office in Berlin. This unit was unique as it contained the largest concentration of Swedish volunteers in the German army during W.W.II. This book is the first of its kind about the unit and it presents unique facts and photo material. The book is based on diary notes and on an original manuscript written by men who participated.
