This short video is of SS-Hauptsturmführer Hans-Gösta Pehrsson a well-known and popular leader among the Swedish Waffen-SS volunteers. He joined the Waffen-SS in June 1941 as the German invasion of the Soviet Union was unfolding. He fought throughout on the Eastern Front, winning his lasting recognition in October 1944 during the Battle of Tekni winning the Honor Roll Clasp, the only Swede to do so. He survived the war and died in Stockholm in 1974.
