List of Waffen-SS divisions

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


All divisions in the Waffen-SS were ordered in a single series of numbers as formed, regardless of type.[1] Those tagged with nationalities were at least nominally recruited from those nationalities. Many of the higher-numbered units were small battlegroups (Kampfgruppen), i.e., divisions in name only.
