The 32nd SS-Freiwilligen-Grenadier-Division : "30.Januar" Hardback
The SS Division 30. Januar was one of the last SS-Divisions formed during World War II and was almost entirely composed of training units and 16-18 year old boys (the honorary name 30.
Januar was the same date Hitler became Reich chancellor in 1933).
First planned as a motorized division, the unit ended up as a normal infantry division because of a lack of fuel.
With a final strength of 12,000, they fought on the Oder-front south of Frankfurt/Oder.
After the Soviet attack on 16 April 1945 they were wiped out in the pocket of Halbe southeast of Berlin.
