Berlin 1945: Ezquerra Unit by Jose Ferre Clauzel.
Miguel Ezquerra (January 10, 1913 – October 29, 1984) was a Spanish Falangist, soldier and volunteer member of the Waffen-SS. He fought in the Spanish Civil War and in the Second World War, in a battalion of the Spanish Blue Division or 250. Infanterie-Division as it was known in the German Army.
After the Blue Division had been repatriated to Spain on April 2, 1944, he was determined to continue to fight. He secretly crossed the French border in April 1944 to enlist in the Wehrmacht, and he was eventually transferred into the Waffen-SS.
As part of the 11th SS Panzergrenadier Division “Nordland”, and with the rank of Hauptsturmführer, Miguel Ezquerra fought to defend the town of Stettin on the Oder River and then helped defend Berlin against Soviet troops, commanding a unit formed by Spanish Fascists, who were among the last defenders of the bunker of Adolf Hitler. The so-called “Ezquerra Unit” was tiny, made up of 37 Spaniards. He was briefly captured by Soviet troops but was released and after various false identities and misadventures across Western Europe, returned to Spain
