Yet after the German invasion of Russia in Operation Barbarossa, well over 400,000 former Soviet citizens went on to fight for Nazi Germany. These included not only the \'legions\' recruited from non-Russian ethnic groups eager for freedom from Stalin\'s dictatorship, but also some 100,000 Russians and Cossacks.

This book offers up an essential guide to the appearance, formation and equipment of the myriad Russian and Soviet units that fought for the Germans.
