Nie trzeba dodawać, że odbywały się regularne biegi i forsowne mar- SZKOLENIE Szkolenie podstawowe SS-Totenkopfverbände było przeprowadzane w bazie jednostki w Dachau. Reżim szkoleniowy dla jednostek zbrojnych SS został opracowany przez emerytowanego generała Reichswehry, Paula Haussera - z pomocą dwóch doświadczonych oficerów: Feliksa Steinera i Cassiusa Freiherra von Montigny, który później służył Eickemu jako oficer operacyjny.

I od tego czasu - za wyjątkiem czterech miesiący pobytu we Francji - od końca 1942 roku do początku 1943, kiedy zostały uzupełnione straty większej części dywizji, 53 SS-TOTENKOPF poniesione w rejonie Demiańska i pozostawania od czasu do czasu w rezerwie - Totenkopf niemal nieustannie była w akcji. W tych warunkach dywizja wydawała się mieć niewielkie, jeśli w ogóle, problemy dyscyplinarne lub moralne. Wszystkie oddziały zaczynają się burzyć, kiedy mają niewiele do roboty; reakcją Eickego na to był zawsze rygorystyczny trening i reżim dyscyplinarny.

Dla Eickego Totenkopf nie była częścią tzw. gorszych instytucji, takich jak armia, policja czy SS-Verßngungstruppe, a była czymś oddzielnym. Dla podkreślenia tego punktu widzenia, Eicke zagroził przekazaniem do Allgemeine-SS wszystkich tych jej członków, którzy nie okazywali właściwego ducha braterstwa lub wykonywali swoje obowiązki bez entuzjazmu. W szkoleniu Eicke kładł nacisk na elitarny charakter Totenkopf -frbände, ich niezrównane braterstwo i bezwzględność połączone z niezwykle surową dyscypliną.
