Caucasus formations

Post by ninoo » 17 Feb 2004 02:27

Hi friends,

I need infos about Caucasian peoples who serve in Waffen-SS. Is there anybody who could supplied me info about it--not including Rob's great site that I have already now. I would like to know about the units, its members view and Nazi leaders opinion about them.
Or maybe you could give me infos about the books that related to them?

Regards,
Nino
