      These guys are Nazi-nostalgiacs!  Check out the web site, fer dog's sakes.

      Wiking.org

      It is our aim to bring you a bit of actual history behind the men who fought against the "Bolshevik scourge"; volunteers who came from the various Northern European countries allied with Hitler's Germany who only had a desire to see an end to Soviet Communism. As we do more research to bring you an accurate portrayal (and build the rest of this website!), you will see more and more content. We also have included histories of the Finnish and Norwegian Legions, and Leon Degrelle's Walloon Brigade because of their close combat association with Division Wiking. Also included is a short history of Division Nordland, which owed its birth to Wiking as being formed from the Nordland Grenadier Regiment in 1943. We will in the future cover other foreign volunteers in the Waffen-SS and Heer (namely the Islamic Handshar, the Russian ROA, and the Spanish Blue Division) in the Other Volunteers section.

      This is an airbrushing of the unit's history.  These guys were fanatical Nazis.  They committed war crimes.  They fought to the bitter end.

          I'd have never allowed myself to be associated with a reenactment SS unit.

          For obvious fucking reasons.

          Wiking masscred Poles, Jews, Ukrainians and Russians. It's a mtter of record. Charlemagne (French)  SS guarded Hitlers Bunker after the Germans had run off. They were that fanatical.

              Myself from anyone who collected Nazi regalia or who joined in an SS reenactment unit. I'd see it as a closetted interest in extreme right wing politics. So it would matter quite a bit.  I'd certainly not want to be represented by that guy in the House or Senate either.
