Established by the puppet Norwegian Prime Minister Vidkun Quisling in October 1943 to recognize Norwegian nationals who had served with the Germans on the eastern front. The Norwegian’s, being seen as suitably Germanic were originally recruited into the SS Nordland Regiment and the Norwegian Legion to serve alongside the Germans in the battle against Bolshevism. Later Norwegians were recruited into the 5.SS-Panzer-Division "Wiking", the 6.SS-Gebirgs-Division "Nord" and the 11.SS-Freiwillingen-Panzer-Grenadier-Division "Nordland".
