I have heard for years that w.ss units,until possibly fall 1941,were trained only in the attack,no defence.Can this be true?

Hello,

About your question on tactics of the Waffen-SS. This statement is false, the Waffen-SS were shock troops. Which means they were sent to penetrate a break through or to close a gap in an enemy break through, thus they were trained in the defense as with the offensive.

Just a quick note, it's impossible to train any kind of force soley on offense it just wouldnt work and its not logical at all.

Cheers,
Chad
