    Hi Nick Hitlers Vikings by Jon Trigg is a good all round book on the Scandanavian volunteers i had some input into the book myself

    Jon has a good style and does some good research with veterans

    Viking Panzers is a must for those interested in the Wiking Panzer Regiment including some of the Scandnavians in the Regiment such as Ola Olin, Ewald Klapdor was a Kompanie commender with the Regiment and it is full of the recollections of the Panzer Regiment vets of all ranks . Klapdor was heavily involved with the veterans association and had access to many personal memories and accounts.

    The other book you have shown i haven't read.

    Other good books are Frontfighters by Richard Landwehr about the Norwegian volunteers , also by Landwehr Nordic Warriors which covers the Danes , Twilight of the Gods about the Swedes in Nordland particulary the Schweden Zug in 3 / SS Pz Aufk Abt 11by Erik Wallin , SS Panzer Aufk Abt 11 Nordland , Armoured reconnaisance with the Waffen SS on the Eastern Front by Herbert Pollner , Martin Mansson and Lennart Westberg ( superb book )

    regards

    Hi Paul

    I have never really studied the Scandinavian units before, therefore I am going to read these books and educate myself. If during the course of my reading I need further info or find a particular area of interest I will give you a shout, if thats ok with you !

    Its great to know there is an expert in the subject here on the forum I can consult with

    Many thanks
