    Default The Big 4 Of The Waffen-SS

    Having had citations in my collection for some time signed by Josef 'Sepp' Dietrich, Theodore Eicke & Felix Steiner I have been looking for one signed by Paul 'Papa' Hausser to complete the quartet of arguably the most influential commanders of the Waffen-SS. This weekend I was able to fulfill that task when I obtained a 1940 dated EK II citation signed by him for a member of SS-Regiment 'Deutschland'. And so I thought I would share these 4 citations - 2 of them are just singles (Hausser & Steiner) while the other 2 are parts of groupings.

    Very nice Hucks a fine quartet , i've got a couple of Steiners from docs from the same period as yours and a Hausser from Wenn alle Bruder schweigen but no Eicke or Dietrich , i'm envious !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    That's an enviable set Hucks, a very unique collection of SS signatures that not many will be able to achieve.

    Thanks for the comments. I have a small number of other SS signatures on citation but thought that I'd just post these 4 as they were influential in the forming and training of the Waffen-SS in its infancy, with the recent Hausser one completing the 4.

    The other SS related signatures on citations I have are...
    SS-GF Friedrich Alpers
    Gen d. Pol Wolf-Heinrich von Helldorf
    SS-ObGF Reinhard Heydrich
    SS-SF Thomas Muller (Hohenstaufen, GvB & Langemarck)
    SS-OsF Gustav Mertsch (Leibstandarte & GvB)
    SS-ObGF Artur Phleps
    SS-BF Max Simon
