In de Tweede Wereldoorlog vochten 38 nationaliteiten mee met de Waffen-SS, de beruchte paramilitaire tak van de Duitse nazipartij NSDAP. Maar niemand leverde meer vrijwilligers dan Vlaanderen. Niet minder dan 23.000 Vlamingen dienden eerst in het SS-Legioen Vlaanderen, vanaf 1943 de SS-Stormbrigade Langemarck. Hun lot werd vaak bezegeld aan het oostfront.
Jonathan Trigg, vermaard militair historicus en voormalig Brits legerkapitein, vertelt meeslepend over de werving van deze zogenaamde Germaanse vrijwilligers, de moordende vrieskou die ze moesten trotseren in Rusland, de schaarse overwinningen, maar vooral over de bloederige nederlagen van de Vlaamse Waffen-SS'ers en finaal hun veroordelingen na de Tweede Wereldoorlog.
De militaire geschiedenis van deze Vlaamse collaborateurs werd nooit zo deskundig en gedetailleerd beschreven. ( )
