Looking for information about SS war crimes against western allies. Especially about Wormhoudt, Le Paradis, Ardenne Abbey, Malmedy massacre.

There are many many more attrocities during the time period but it is a good place to start and gives examples of those committed on the allied side as well.

I'm a particular detractor of anything SS, but I believe it is good practice to recognise other's transgressions.
War can bring out the worst as well as the best is some folks.

Interestingly, the US civil war promulgated 'Rules of Land Warfare' allowed for declaration of the Waffen SS as
'Outlaws' [as in 'Outlaw Josey Wales'] following Malmedy..

.. as justification for summary killing of Waffen SS prisoners by US forces as 'legal' retaliative reprisal..

http://www.stephen-stratford.co.uk/pooleys_revenge.htm may also be of interest - circa 100 British PoWs were murdered by the SS in 1940. One of the survivors (there were two, both of whom were captured shortly afterwards by another unit) was repatriated in 1943, but nobody believed him until after the war.

The commander of the company which carried out the massacre (Fritz Knoechlein) was convicted and later executed in January 1949.
