    Default Which WSS Division do you rank the best

    Hi guys,

    After reading Dimas' old thread Waffen -SS elite troops?

    Im getting curious to which division my fellow forum members consider the best? Its just for fun as I know its not measureable and that the word "best" can have a many definitions in this question, So it really is up to you what you put weight on.

    In my opinion Wiking was no. 1 (just a notch in front of Totenkopf), because they were figting almost continuously at the Eastern front.
    They advanced as far as Caucasus. Fireguard of the Southern front. Stabilising the central front after Bagration.
    Played a crucial role in the Cherkassy breakout and the Konrad offensives.
    Finally they fought their way back to Austria in order to surrender to the Americans.

    Whats your favourite?

    Wallonie's rearguard defence during the Cherkassy escape is epic Do you know how many got out alive?

    12th SS Hitler Jugend for me

    Young, tenacious, fearless and feared

    Hard one, but I too would say Adolf Hitler, closely followed by Wiking and Das Reich with 12th HJ closely behind them.

    [QUOTE=Woolgar;1149785]12th SS Hitler Jugend for me

    Young, tenacious, fearless and feared

    for me too, the 12. SS-Panzer-Division "Hitlerjugend"

    but if we are to awards received as a reference

    1--2.ª División SS Das Reich with 90 Ritterkreuz ( 72 Ritterkreuz +15 mit Eichenlaub +3 und Schwertern)

    2--5ª SS Panzergrenadier Division Wiking whit 67 Ritterkreuz ( 55 Ritterkreuz + 8 mit Eichenlaub + 3 und Schwertern +1 und Brillianten)

    3--Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler whit 66 Ritterkreuz ( 53 Ritterkreuz + 10 mit Eichenlaub + 3 und Schwertern )
