    Well, yeah. They had African and Arab members, too. Legion Freies Arabien had lotsa recruits from Near to Middle East and North Africa. They were cool with a lot of people as long as they hated the Jews enough.

    Not even that was really required nor strong ties to the Naziideology. At the end of the war the Waffen SS had nearly 900.000 combatants if I remember correctly. And most of the troops have been foreign nationalities. Including even Russians. The Waffen SS had very high loses during the war so they could not keep their idea of Aryan purity to fill up the ranks and they ended up using what ever they could.

    Quite ironic for the Third Reich which was build on the ideology of racial purity to command an army which contained at the end of the war 24 different nations. Aprox. 300.000 members of the Waffen SS have been recruited from nations allied to Germany or even occupied territories.

    I'm 100% sure it was this racial impurity that made them lose the war. O, and Hitler acting like a complete idiot, of course, let's not forget about that.
