Subhash Chandra Bose with Captain Mausenberg, with whom he made a submarine voyage from Europe to Asia in 1943.

Prominent Indian nationalist, Subhash Chandra Bose reviewing troops of the Azad Hind Fauj, an Indian military unit raised in 1941 in Germany, attached to the German Army and later from August 1944 attached to the Waffen-SS. The initial recruits were Indian student volunteers resident in Germany at the time, and a handful from the Indian prisoners of war (POWs) captured by Rommel during his North Africa Campaign. It would later draw a larger number of Indian POWs as volunteers.
