    Well the ss depending on what divison i guess you could classify as elite in military terms because its not like you could take the 1st adolf hitler divison and line it up next to the 23rd kama and say they were both elite when in fact the 23rd were crap and as to there loyality once again it depends on what divison some were ready to die for their fuher others like the 23rd kama or any of the baltic divisons joined because they thought that they were on the winning side in the war and rather than suffer the wrath of german occupation why not join the germans

    Some of the SS divisions (especially the first ones, like "Das Reich") were elite formations, but some SS units existed just for the propaganda purposes, and basically never faced any real battle (or they dropped their weapons if they did). So it's quite meaningless/difficult to sum SS divisions up in one word.

    Could you name some waffen-SS divisions that did such thing?
    Really curious to know which one.

    As you probably noticed, I wrote that:

    "some SS units existed just for the propaganda purposes, and basically never faced any real battle"

    ... Not SS Divisions, but (smaller) SS units.

    For example one unit of the Indian Waffen SS legion lost just couple of persons (If I'm not completely mistaken). And most Muslim/Azeri waffen SS units (formed in 1944/1945) were low in morale and training to begin with, and for example Ostturkischen Waffen SS unit (regiment?) pretty much just marched to Italy and surrendered to Americans.

    One Russian/Ukrainian Waffen SS battalion mutinied and murdered its officers in late 1944.

    One sad "SS Division" was 21st Waffen Mountain Division of the SS Skanderbeg:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/21st_Wa...(1st_Albanian))
    [edit: the url doesn't convert correctly, but hopefully it still works, if not, search the unit from wikipedia]

    Sorry, but I directly cannot remember which units "dropped their weapons."

    Well, the British SS unit is a perfect example of this - most of the long-term members appear to have been working for British Intelligence, while the rest were using it as a kind of PoW camp version of Butlins - a break with better food and conditions, then they "changed their minds" and went back to the PoW camps. There might have been one or two who did actually fight immediately before VE-day, but that's it.

    If you wonder why some units were so loyal to Hitler, it's simple:

    It was a requirement to be a convinced Nazi in order to be able to join.
    The fundamental problem of Democracy is that the majority of voters are idiots fueled by uninformed rage - and the Politicians do everything to cater to them.

    That would be the Georgische Legion?

    I have heard also of the Russkaya Osvoboditel'naya Armiya or Vlasov's army who changed side during the uprising of prague.

    If it's not these units you were talking about ,could you give me more info?
    I don't recall the 14. Waffen-Grenadier-Division der SS (ukrainische Nr.1) having mutinied also but there were so many units from eastern europe it makes me dizzy.
    Speaking of the Ukranians,here are some words from Himmler at a staff conference in March 1945:
    "We just don't know what is floating around.I have just heard for the first time,to my amazement,that a Ukranian SS division had suddenly appeared.I don't know a thing about this"

    The murder of german NCO's/Officers actually occured with the 13th Waffen-Gebirgsdivision der SS "Handschar".
    In "The SS: Hitler's Instrument of Terror" the author Gordon Williamson writes that the german staff despised "this hotchpotch of miserable muslim recruits with their ridiculous head gear". After verbal insults the tension kept rising and the killings happened.

    But Alephh spoke of Ukranians/Russians troops.
    A mistake maybe?

    After quickly browsing some sources: the case I refer to happened in the 30th Waffen SS Division (2nd Russian), Sept. 1944.

    Yes, you're right. Within the 30th SS (Russian No. 2 respectively Belorussian No. 1) things like that happened as well. Within two different battalions of the division (actually it was still a brigade by August 1944) soldiers killed their german officers and defected.
