Of course, it is a pleasure for me to remind everyone on bbad of the voluntary force that touch my heart the most.
Because we are related by blood.
Because they were one of the last foreign bataillons in Berlin fighting the invading russian communists and stood true to the reich as foreign volunteers.
Because almost all of them died fighting any form of communism.
Because they didn’t receive the honour they deserve.
Because the communist enemy said about them they were fanatics.
Because there is a whole letter-size page of beautiful things German WWII officials had to say about them.
50000 came under order of Spanish leadership.
3000 deserted Spanish leadership orders to withdraw from German allies and to come home under thread of death penalty if disobeyed and instead joined German Waffen-XX.
Almost all of them died, most of them defending Berlin.
I am talking of no one less than BLUE DIVISON.
Voluntarios división azul/ XX-division of foreign volunteers number #101 “the Spanish Legion”/ Spanische Freiwillige der Blau División
Shirt colour: BLUE (of course)
I recommend the book “Berlin a vida o muerte” of Miguel Ezquerra to learn about their ardent motivation of fighting communsim.
What did you think was my favorite shirt color? Red???
