Comments: What is the SS? (part 1)

Jon writes: "The Waffen SS were the SS's combat divisions, introduced in 1940 to deflect resentment of the cushy lives led by SS members."

At least three combat regiments existed in 1937. They just weren't officially called the "Waffen SS" until 1940. (Not sure what they were called then -- references don't say.)

I think the word 'Aryan' should be in quotation marks. What's 'Aryan?'
