Infanterie-Division in the German Army was a unit of Spanish volunteers and conscripts who served in the German Army on the Eastern Front of the Second World War.

    My grandfather served in the German Army as a volunteer within the Spanish Blue Division on the Eastern Front. My mother still keeps his uniform and the weapons he used there to defend Europe from the Red Army and communism. The motto of this brave Spanish unit was "Sin relevo posible, hasta la extinción", which means "No possible relief, until extinction". 🇪🇸 🇩🇪
