Siegrunen 80. Second Edition (May 2012). When this issue was first published in 2009, it was Siegrunen's 33rd year of publication. This is Siegrunen's third book-length issue. This new format for Siegrunen provides more content, including some revised reprints from long out-of-print back issues.

Siegrunen grew out of editor Richard Landwehr's inability to locate any adequate amount of published, accurate material on the Waffen-SS and, in particular, the non-German volunteer units in the 1960s, so he took a chance that by publishing a journal he might attract more sources of “good” information—and it worked. He also strongly felt that the “volunteers” were being given the shaft by the mainstream media, if they were ever mentioned at all. The “establishment” defamation was, and remains, staggering.

It did not take him very long to discover that these were not criminals, but for the most part, were above-average individuals, highly motivated, skilled and courageous who happened to belong to an elite military organization (the Waffen-SS), that was so far ahead of its time that we still have not yet caught up to it.
