Waffen-SS

The soldiers of the Waffen-SS constituted the military or “armed” units of the SS, or Schutzstaffel, originally a paramilitary Nazi force that served as Hitler’s bodyguard. Numerous Waffen-SS divisions were formed prior to and during World War II, and these engaged in fighting as active combat formations. Waffen-SS troops were noted for their fanatical loyalty to the Nazi regime and were responsible for many atrocities during World War II.
