Original German WWII Waffen-SS Photo Album With Pictures of Brandenburger Special Forces - 21 Pictures
Original Item: One-Of-A-Kind. This is a fantastic photo album of what appears to be early war Waffen-SS as well as Panzer units and possibly Brandenburg Commandos! There are 21 pictures in total and each page is separated with onion skin partitions, which helped in the preservation of these lovely photographs.
Most of the photos appear to be of an SS unit wearing lovely camouflage uniforms with helmet covers. They are conducting various types of military operations from parades to what seems to be an assault on a town judging by the burning buildings. They show troopers in cover amongst debris as well as seeking concealment in a field from aircraft flying overhead. There are two really interesting photos which show what appears to be commandos from the Brandenburgers getting into a small boat and conducting a river crossing, but we are not totally clear on it.
The Brandenburgers were members of the Brandenburg German special forces unit during World War II. Originally, the unit was formed by and operated as an extension of the military's intelligence organ, the Abwehr. Members of this unit took part in seizing operationally important targets by way of sabotage and infiltration. Being foreign German nationals who were convinced NSDAP volunteers, constituent members had lived abroad and were proficient in foreign languages as well as being familiar with the way of life in the area of operations where they were deployed.
This is a lovely photo album where a description doesn’t really do it any justice. Be sure to take a look at the pictures listed, you will be amazed at the quality of each picture!
