    @wittmann:

    Was it Cherkasy? Or was it in the Baltic States later on?

    Cherkassy was the 5th Waffen SS Division Viking, Wittmann.

    An old friend of mine who knew a Former soldier of the Vikings told me ones:

    • And they broke out and left many behind, no one carried the wounded,…… they scraped together what they got.
      He walked along a StuG III for a while and heard somebody call his Name, Reis, Reis. He looked up and saw his old buddy from his Town and replied. What are you doing in here??

    @poloplayer15:

    Wittman. The 10th SS was actually surrounded in the Battle of Halbe, which was south-east of Berlin. The battle was actually considered part of the Battle of Berlin

    It wasn’t the first time they had been surrounded  😉.

    The 10th SS Panzer-Division “Frundsberg” was formed out of the 10th SS-Panzergrenadier-Division on 26. October 1943.

    Nice Choice Poloplayer15.

    Morning Aequitas.
    I should read more about Cherkassy(thought it was 2 ss).The 5th SS would have been my choice of Division for the Eastern Front. It had a fearless reputation and contained the 3rd highest number of Knights’ Cross winners after the 2nd and 1st.
