Following high losses in Russia, the need for replacement troops was very great. As a consequence, Bosnians, Arabs, Asians, Trans-Caucasians and Indian soldiers were all enlisted in the Wehrmacht and even in the Waffen-SS. More thank a million such men served.
This large format book from Heimdal, illustrated with more than 300 photographs, badges, flags, maps, uniforms and other documents, tells the little known story of these troops.
