HIMMLER'S BOSNIAN DIVISION: THE WAFFEN-SS HANDSCHAR DIVISION 1943-1945- BOOK
Current events in Bosnia-Herzegovenia have drawn the world's attention to the plight of Muslim peoples in this once little known region of Europe. However, during the second World War, Bosnia's Muslims again stood alone in the face of imminent physical annihilation. In desperation, their leaders turned to an unlikely source for help - Nazi Germany - and by 1944, thousands of Muslims were serving within the ranks of the Waffen-SS. Himmler's Bosnian Division is the story of the" Handschar", a Muslim combat formation created by the Germans to restore order in Bosnia. What actually transpired was quite different.
