Following the Nazi occupation of Belgium in 1940 and the German invasion of Soviet Russia in 1941, thousands of young Flemish men volunteered to enlist in the Waffen-SS and fight on the Eastern Front. In 2007 the publication of Hitler’s Flemish Lions, Jonathan Trigg’s history of these volunteers, led to meetings between the author and surviving Oostfronters: in a series of interviews, on themes from the 1940 invasion to the aftermath of war, this book lets them tell their stories.
