I'm curious how they felt, fighting alongside the Axis against their Russian countrymen. (And, knowing how the Axis troops often behaved to Russian civilians, it only makes the split-loyalties thing more interesting).

But they did know how behave communists in USSR against Russians. Let me demonstrate on of the best examples of communist regime:


Vasili Mikhailovich Blokhin (January 7, 1895 – February 3, 1955) was a Soviet Major-General who served as the chief executioner of the Stalinist NKVD under the administrations of Genrikh Yagoda, Nikolai Yezhov and Lavrenty Beria (after their respective falls from power, Yagoda and Yezhov were executed by Blokhin himself). Hand-picked for the position by Joseph Stalin in 1926, Blokhin led a company of executioners that performed and supervised numerous mass executions during Stalin's reign, mostly during the Great Purge and World War II. He is recorded as having executed tens of thousands of prisoners by his own hand, including his killing of about 7,000 Polish prisoners of war during the Katyn Massacre in 1940, making him the most prolific official executioner in recorded world history.

Also he was a teacher for few generations of NKVD executioners, he wasn't arrested nor demoted by Soviet Stalin's regime. If there existed at least one similar executer among Germans his name would have been used as a demonstration of anti-Russian Nazi criminal policy up to the present day. But since Blohin was a communist he's still a hero for leftists and police, burried in the elite cemetery of Moscow together with his wife :)  And of course, people who fought against such "countrymen" did a mistake ::)
