The 32nd SS-Freiwilligen-Grenadier-Division : 30.Januar Hardback

Description

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.
