Example text

It was decided that SS-Fallschirmjager Bataillon 600 and SS-Jagdverband Mitte were to be temporarily merged to form an SS regiment, which would be held as the reserve for Skorzeny's Schwedt bridgehead. Shortly afterwards, however, Hitler decided that the defenders of the bridgehead could be withdrawn. SS-Fallschirmjager Bataillon 600 was then moved southwards to another east-bank bridgehead at Zehenden to the south-west of Konigsberg. Here, on 6 March, in its merged form with Jagdverband Mitte, the battalion joined a number of other smaller Waffen-SS units in a new SS-Kampfgruppe Solar, which came under the control of the newly formed Division zbV 610 (Special Duties Division 610) - by now, of course, the term 'division' was purely nominal.

Skorzeny soon moved on from the SA to join the elite SS. On the outbreak of war, Skorzeny had volunteered for the Luftwaffe only to be rejected as too old at the age of 31. In early 1940 he entered the Waffen-SS, joining the division 'Das Reich' as an officer cadet, and as an engineer he was given the task of ensuring his unit's tanks were kept maintained and operational. During the invasion of Yugoslavia, a small squad commanded by Skorzeny captured a group of 57 Yugoslavian officers and men, a feat which earned him a field commission.

The men allocated to the battalion were sent to the Luftwaffe's Paratroop School No. 3 at Mataruska Banja to begin their jump training. Not all the personnel were military prisoners; a cadre of regular Waffen-SS combat veterans were also transferred into the unit, some of whom were decidedly unhappy to find themselves serving alongside convicts. The fact that many of the disciplinary cases were indeed unsuitable was confirmed when around 100 of them were returned to the SS authorities, either as being physically unfit or, in some cases, having being caught selling equipment (including weapons) on the black market.
