Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

1760  War & Conflicts Discussions / Waffen-SS Panzer Divisions / 3rd SS Panzer Division "Totenkopf" on: 2 November 2008, 09:32:49
This division the 'Totenkopf' emerged from two different significant interrelated forces in the Third Reich.
These forces were personal and individual on the one hand, and institutional and ideological on the other.
Individually the division was in a real sense the personal creation of its commander Theodor Eicke.
Ideologically the division was the institutional outgrowth of the sinister SS deaths head units 'SSTV', the military SS formations created by Eicke to guard the concentrationcamps.

Its name was for ever tied to military successes, ruthness, crimes against humanity but also of honour and devotion to the Reich.
At the Reichsparteitag in Nuremberg in september 1935 Adolf Hitler made the first move for the birth of the division.
Eicke was granted funds for training and maintaining his units at the cost of the Reich as a reward for its services to the Reich.
In March 1936 (at Eickes request) Himmler authorised the increase of the size of SSTV from 1800 to 3500 men.
First recruits who entered service had to comply to several demands.
They had to be 17 to 22 years old, at least five feet and ten inches tall, in perfect shape and racially pure.
Many of the officers were like Eicke veterans of WW 1, many served with the SA and drifted through the Algemeine SS before ending up in the SSTV.
Enlistment time changed from 2 years in 1938 to 12 years.

In 1937 Eicke ordered the second enlargement of the SSTV, the 5 original SS batallions were transformed into 3 regiments. Each with a name and number.
Each regiment was posted in one of the 3 big concentrationcamps.
SS Totenkopfstandarte I `Oberbayern` at Dachau.
SS Totenkopfstandarte II `Brandenburg` at Sachsenhausen.
SS Totenkopfstandarte III `Thuringen` at Buchenwald.

The anschluss 'anexation of Austria' enabled Eicke to create a 4th regiment.
SS Totenkopfstandarte IV 'Ostmark' at Mauthausen Linz.
In 1938 the last expansion took place.
In that year Hitler made the SSTV units legal and defined the parameters for their usage.
This allowed Himmler to enlarge the unit even more.
This meant that the entire SS would get a special status.
They were under direct control of the party and not the Wehrmacht.
They also were to be armed ,trained and used as military units under wartime periods.

This degree meant that the division now fielded 4 regiments of 3 battallions each, each bn with 3 companies and a machinegun company.
And the division should be equiped with enough transports and vehicles to make it fully motorized.
In 1939 Himmler used this degree to strengthen the division even more during the Tsjechian crisis.
During this period the division strenth was 22.033 men including 755 officers, 5005 NCOs and the rest enlisted men.
The division further had pistols and gasmasks for every man, 19643 carabines, 325 and 486 light machineguns and 1458 machinepistols.

In september 1939 the Division was to fullfill security tasks in the rear area of operations of the Wehrmacht armies.
The regiments were committed to the rear area as Einsatzgruppen.
Oberbayern and Thuringen were sent out to follow the path of the German 10th army,Thuringen followed the 8th army.
Their main task was killing of enemies of the state, jews, political opponents gays and other people who formed a `threath´ to the Reich in these newly "liberated" parts of the Reich.

After this campaign the SSTV and other SS formations were transformed into divisions, and they had to begin preparations for the coming war in the West.
Eicke took over command of the SSTK division in october 1939.
Now SSTK was served as a normal infantrydivision.
It fielded a division staff, 3 motorized infantry regiments, an artillery regiment with 105 and 150mm field guns, a signal-communication battallion, an engineer batallion, a tankdestroyer battallion with 16 Pak 36, a recon battallion and a supply-administrative-transport and a medical battallion.
