When a new Waffen-SS division was sent to France for training in 1943, disgruntled soldiers launched a mutiny against their officers, resulting in full-scale fighting between SS troops.

You're very very wrong on this one - Bosnian Muslim were never persecuted by Ustasha, quite the opposite actually, Ustashe protected them as they were considered to be Croatian by ethnicity (hence why they also wore the Croatian coat of arms on their uniforms even in the SS Handschar division). Almost a quarter of the NDH leaders were Muslim, look up Džafer Kulenović. Pavelić actually even ordered for a Mosque to be built in the center of Zagreb. The said mosque was demolished by the communists in 1945, tough the outlines of its minarets can still be seen. I'm interested what sources did you use for this because it is dead wrong.

So Bosnian Muslims in the service of Hitler are the same as Bosnian Muslims in the service of NATO - they have a moral problem in killing the French, but no moral problem in killing their neighbors and relatives, Serbs or Croats ?! An interesting ethnic trait. This has not been observed in nations in the West. They are generally not servile to the Masters, they look to BE MASTERS.

Serbian General Milan Nedic ran a pro-Nazi Serbian puppet govt during WW2 in Serbia proper. Also, the Serbian Chetniks switched sides during WW2 ( at least from 1942 onwards) and collaborated with the Nazis & other pro-Axis forces i.e: the Italians & even the Ustasha militia in some cases.

the iranian origins story is a thing with croats in general, and in the NDH the muslims were seen as a subgroup of croats, some even went as far as saying the muslims were truer, more pure-blooded croats, what ever that may mean, than the catholic croats. And it's not as baseless as it may seem, the story with the name that is, as the name is probably sarmatian in origin. But that is just the name, we speak a slavic language and are genetically a mix of a ton of different groups, so an "aryan" name says next to nothing about the ancestry of the people

I've always wondered about the usefulness of the various foreign units the Germans raised during the war. Some undoubtedly fought well, but in other cases, like this, it seems they were a waste of time, equipment, and effort. In the end, it couldn't even fulfill the limited security role that it had been formed for. It was just a way for Himmler to add to his private Waffen-SS army, to increase his prestige and power position within the competing factions within Nazi Germany. Goering did the same thing, creating Luftwaffe "Field Divisions" that were understrength, poorly led, and near worthless in combat. The weapons, equipment, vehicles, supplies, and German personnel wasted away for the formation of a supposedly Bosnian Muslim division would probably been enough to bring at least one, maybe two, regular German army infantry division up to something approaching full strength. It wouldn't have changed the course of the war by much if any, but I can only imagine the frustration and despair the regular German army felt as it carried the bulk of the burden of ground combat, while it was starved for replacements and new equipment, all because Hitler's various sycophant Nazi leaders were engaged in a petty competition with each other.

Nicely done video. It is important to add that most of guys in the unit were those who survived Chetnik massacres in Bosnia. They simply wanted to defend themselves and their families, they were not interested into Nazi ideology. That’s why they rebelled in France after they heard rumours they will not return to Bosnia to defend their families. The leader of mutiny was Ferid Džanić from Bihać (western part of Bosnia, called Krajina).

be careful when talking badly about nazis here, as you may upset a 13 year old who sympathizes with hitler and nazi germany because he's sick of playing as the allies in COD WW2. or perhaps you will upset another teenage genuinely racist "history buff" who believes the wehrmacht was full of good men ignorant of the concentration camps.

The Russians were shocked that the Stalingrad encirclement took only days. Foreign troops manned the flanks, outnumbered and outgunned, This tape explains why also. Morale in most foreign conscriptions is never high except for a few fanatics.

The last bit was the most interesting. You always hear (to varying degrees) about how the FFL recruited among the SS/Wehrmacht, etc post-war, but I didn't know any of the Arab countries went recruiting for the '48 war, too. I bet when the word got around the kibbutzim where those mountain boys came from, you probably had a hard time surrendering if you didn't look like an Arab or had an Blutgruppentätowierung blood tat on your body...

Bosnians are Slavs and are native Europeans. Before Ottoman empire came they had Bosnian church that was little different than church in Vatican. After arrival of Turks they mainly converted to Islam. Before Slavs came to Bosnia Illyrians lived in Bosnia and it was also part of Roman empire. Illyrians mixed with Slavs and Scordisci (Celtic people) when they came to Bosnia ...

No the Franciscan monks in Bosnia on orders of the Pope converted all the Bogomils ( a religious sect of circa 10,000 people) before the arrival of the Turks into Bosnia.

I'll never understand why surrender in a situation like this. Its obvious they'd be executed, so why just surrender and go along with it? I know I've never been in that situation, but it's always been a mystery to me why you wouldn't at least try to overwhelm your captors or something when they're lining you up at a mass grave

At the start of the video we see a map from AFTER 1945, the post-war Polish and Soviet borders are seen, this while the narrator describes the situation at the height of war. Is it so hard to find a pre-war map? or one showing the situation as it was under the german occupation at the time? with croat and slovak formal independence? We even see the border between the BRD and the DDR...
