Sorry, but what will be the training company of SS-Totenkopfstandarten in 1939? From 1940 there was a training company at I. K. L.. Do you mean the?

Hello H.Z.
Until October 1939 the SS-T-Standarten in general had no special trainingcompanies. When called up and only for the time being, new recruits were brought together in special Ausbildungsunits within a Standarte. During 1939 SS-Reservists were called-up and trained in the I. and II./SS-Ergänzungssturmbann. After completing their 3 months military training, these reservists returned to their Allgemeine SS units.
Only after the establishment of the SS-Totenkopfdivsion in October 1939, new recruits were brought together in seperate SS-T-Inf.Ers.Btls.
Many more details are in my book.
Best regards,
Marten

I just received Marten's new book. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the history of the SS-TV. His research is exhaustive, comprehensive and is accompanied by extremely well chosen images.

Dear forummember, dear readers,
Within three months volume II of my documentation of the SS-Totenkopfverbände 1933-1939 except for a few last copies is out of stock now.
The many commending mails I received, are a stimulus to make the already in rawtext available contents of Volume III fit for printing with greater speed.
Several buyers described my documentation as standardwork on the SS-Totenkopfverbände. To publish such a standardwork was my aim. A final conclusion, however, is left to the readers.
Last copies of volume I as well as volume II are still available, as long as the stock lasts. Contact please tveccles@cs.com
Best wishes,
Marten van Dijken

For those who are interessted in SS-TV/KL officers and NCO's I strongly recommend you to buy the book Exzess- und Direkttäter im KZ Sachsenhausen, Metropolverlag.
A lot of short biographies and photos

VOLUME III "DIE SS-TOTENKOPFVERBÄNDE 1933 - 1939"

Post by bogo » 11 Jul 2017 18:03

After the success of volume I (sold out) and volume II (few last copies still available) volume III of “Die SS-Totenkopfverbände 1933 – 1939” is ready for shipment now.
This volume describes the turbulent events during the year 1939.

The formation of the SS-Heimwehr Danzig and its actions during the battle in and around Danzig in September 1939 are documented in detail on the basis of only recently discovered and so far unpublished original battle-reports.

Furthermore, so far unknown details concerning the actions of the 2. SS-T-Standarte “Brandenburg” in Poland during September 1939 are revealed.
Proof is furnished that the Standarten “Oberbayern” and “Thüringen” never saw action in Poland. The, in the post-war literature widespread, assertion, these Standarten had committed atrocities and executed masskillings during September 1939 in Poland, is definitively refuted.

The formation of three new SS-T-Standarten (No. 5, No. 6 and No. 7) and the formation of a Berittene Abteilung of the SS-Totenkopfverbände in September 1939 is documented in detail, as well as the formation of the SS-Totenkopfdivision and a SS-T-Rekrutenstandarte in October 1939.

The, during the years 1934 – 1939, frequently changing uniforms and badges of the SS-TV, the frequently changing numbering and unit-descriptions of the SS-TV and the “Fahnen” and “Standarten” of the SS-TV are described and documented extensively in separate chapters.
With a study of the individual Theodor Eicke, statistics of the composition of the “Führerkorps” of the SS-TV, the philosophy of life of the SS-TV and a comparison of the financial budgets of the SS-TV during the years 1936 – 1939 volume III is completed.

This volume (german language) contains 270 pages and 140 photos.

Volume III will be shipped (by registered mail incl. track & trace) immediately after receipt of payment of
39,50 euro + 12,95 euro (shippingcosts inside Europe) = 52,45 euro
or 39,50 euro + 16,95 euro (shippingscosts outside Europe) =56,45 euro.

Orders or additional info through tveccles@cs.com
Sincerely,
Marten .

I just finished reading volume III of Marten's series. Outstanding. Very well researched and accurately documented. Many facts of the early development of the Totenkopfstandarten, unknown to most readers, are given with a wealthy of details and data.

I strongly recommend the book. Well done, Marten. Congratulations

Ignacio
