WIKING RUF - Europäische Freiwilligen in der Waffen-SS -

Together in combat in an army of soldiers from many European nations, like it today, and hopefully not too late, is being urged by the western powers - This thought was already then set into real life with us. In the ranks of Division Wiking stood representatives of most of Europe's countries and nations.
It was no Foreign Legion, neither a collection of vagabonds and workless - as has often been the claim after the war. The majority were idealists, with a strong national feeling towards their own country. But they realized already 10 years ago that Europe could only be defended by joint efforts."

Oberstgruppenführer (ret.) Herbert-Otto Gille
October 26th 1952
