SA-Rottenführer Josef Wessel
In the context of these magazines it should be mentioned that in the aftermath of the German and Soviet invasion of Poland in 1939 (two-fifths went to Germany and three-fifths of Poland went to the Soviet Union), the British and French governments declared war on Nazi Germany but not on the Soviet Union! That action is still one of the great unexplained mysteries of World War II!
