"The name Degrelle remains controversial in Belgium and abroad due to his WWII service in the German military. Was he a traitor to his nation or a hero for anti-Communism? This work sets out the history of Degrelle and the Rex political movement, along with its eventual military collaboration after the 1940 German occupation of Belgium. Also covers rival movements and iimportant personalities, along with an extensive list of sources. Provides the most extensive account of the campaigns of the Legion Wallonie and its successor SS-Sturmbrigade/Division Wallonien (28th SS Freiw.-Gren. Division) published in English. Presents fascinating information about Degrelle's Spanish volunteers, and obscure Walloon military formations. A must-have for military historians, afficianados of rare photos, and collectors of materials on the SS." - paraphrased from dust jacket. Clean, bright and unmarked with very light wear. Dust jacket now preserved in archival-grade Brodart. An excellent copy of this superb reference.
