    Which would make perfect sense…if Germany had African colonies in World War II…and had no laws restricting service in the Wehrmacht on the basis of race.

    They surely were in control for some time.

    That second argument puzzles me, though. But was this legion of Free Arabs part of the Wehrmacht or were they a "hired" group, thus falling under different laws?

    No. Germany never issued control over an African colony. German forces propped up Italian forces. An important political distinction.

    And no, I can never recall hearing of a "Free Arab" force. Again, such things would have been under Italian jurisdiction. I have also never heard of the Wehrmacht giving mercenaries uniforms.

    I am not saying that this German (and Arabian) page

    http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legion_Freies_Arabien

    is 100% truth but it says that until 19. April 1943 more than 20.000 mostly Muslim volunteers applied for service for the German Reich. The applications happened mostly in the Balkan area.

    The same picture is in the corner of the article.

    This man had an important role in this matter.

    So they would be Arab immigrants to the Balkans? That makes a lot of sense then. Those 11 divisions were often of lower quality and of local control, compared to other units.

    Foro: The weird thing is a black guy in a Wehrmacht uniform. That's just bizarre.

    I mean, I know the background and all (I digged the picture up, after all), but still... how is that not weird?

    I admit it looks weird alright. Perhaps the Germans came into a fase where they accepted every help they needed.

    Yeah. It's just a bit of a mindfuck.

    OK, Wehrmacht I can see, but DEFINITELY not the Waffen SS.

    Great scene, though! :D

    (Don't worry that I spoiled the movie for you, this is really the only scene from it worth seeing)
