Drawing on a superb collection of rare and unpublished photographs the 5th SS Division Wiking 1941 - 1945 is the 5th book in the Waffen-SS Images of War Series by Ian Baxter. The book tells the dramatic story of the 5th SS Panzer Division Wiking at War. The men of the division were recruited from foreign volunteers in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, the Netherlands and Belgium under the command of German officers. Not all were collaborators - the choice they were all too often presented with was join up or be locked up - or worse. During the course of the war, the division served on the Eastern Front in 1941. It surrendered in May 1945 to the American forces in Austria. AUTHOR: Ian Baxter is an avid collector of WW2 photographs. His previous books in this Series include Hitler's Boy Soldiers, Nazi Concentration Camp Commandants and German Army on the Eastern Front The Advance, German Army on the Eastern Front The Retreat and Nazi Concentration Camp Commandants, The Crushing of Army Group (North) and SS Leibstandarte Division At War. He lives near Chelmsford, Essex. 250 photographs
