Vidkun Quisling inspects the Germanske SS Norge on the Palace Square in Oslo

Germanske SS Norge (GSSN, Germanic SS Norway) was a military organization established in Norway in July 1942. GSSN was at the same time a Norwegian branch of Germanic-SS, and a sub organization of Quisling's Nasjonal Samling. Leader of the organization was Jonas Lie, and second-in-command was Sverre Riisnæs. The number of members reached a maximum of about 1,300 in 1944. A large part of the members were recruited from the police, and about fifty percent served at the Eastern Front.[1][2]
