The division's reputation lingered, however, and in 1945, when the division was turned over by the Americans to the Soviets, both innocent and guilty Totenkopf were sent to their deaths in the Gulags, or shot without trial.

At the end of this section of the book comes the "Gebirgstruppe command list" for 10 December 1944 (with a list of units, commanders, and chiefs of staff as of that date), a list of "wearers of high-ranking decorations," and a list of mountain divisions named in OKW communiques during 1943-45.

The division remained in that area, but as the Allies approached northern Italy it was subordinated directly to the AOK 10 of Army Group C. In February 1945 the division, which was still referred to and led as a reserve division, was sent into the front.
