Ruimteaapje If "the killings in Belgium" is Malmédy then indeed he was not guilty of that. But mind you, he had his share in killing pow's and civilians during that week in the Ardennes. The SS certainly did leave many dead civilians behind them , I can't say definitely that JP ordered their deaths but murder is murder. Agate's book didn't really do much for me I found him too much in love with "the man and the myth" Whilst I do find some of the waffen SS officers interesting in their own right I try to balance the men , their actions and the regime they fought for. As "Von Poop" said it is not all black and white. 70 years on answers are still hard to find.
