Discussion of postwar fate?
It seems like someone considered the father of the Waffen-SS would have be sentenced very heavily at Nuremburg, however, this article mentions only that he testified there. Perhaps a short paragraph detailing his postwar fate? Historian932 (talk) 04:34, 7 July 2008 (UTC)
I would assume that if hausser had more to do with the SS that he would have been tried and convicted at the trials.
From what i have read about Hausser, the 'Papa' name was given by his troops under his command, not so much as SS Nazis.
IT should also be noted that there were 2 seperate SS sects, that being the infamous hunter killer groups tasked with 'purging' areas of Jewish people and others, and the regular fighting brigades, such as the SS Gross Deutschlad, das Viking, leibstandarte Adolf Hitler, totenkompf, among others... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 03:18, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
Aside from an element of classic apologism (and i presume some language issues as the word sect is not used in English in a military context) there is also a rather basis mistake - Gross Deutshland was not a Waffen SS division - it was a Heer (army) one. And to go back to the apologism - Totenkpof was of course formed originally from troops from the Totenkopfverbande - ie concentration camp guard units
The service end dates given for Heeresgruppe Oberrhein and Heeresgruppe G, don't match the dates when those groups are shown as disbanded on their respective pages. Kevink707 (talk) 17:10, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
The "Authorship" section mentions the book Waffen-SS im Einsatz and translates it as Waffen-SS in Action. But "Einsatz" means "something inserted." "Wirkung" means "action." The SS Einsatz groups were inserted into the regular army as special units whose task was to ruthlessly destroy specific local populations.Lestrade (talk) 00:58, 6 December 2010 (UTC)Lestrade
