The official AHF WW2 Western Europe quiz thread

Post by Marcus » 31 Jan 2005 19:36

We've had several different quizes running here in the forum for a while with great success and this new section has been open for a while without one, so I'm starting one here too.

The rules are very simple:
The first one to post the correct answer to a question, posts a new question (must be on the WW2 in Western Europe & the Atlantic) and so on.

Let's start with an easy one: which was the only Waffen-SS Division to fought exclusively on the Western Front?

Ok,gents,let's try this one:

What was the name of the CO of the 7th Rifle Regiment of Rommel's "Ghost division" in France in 1940? He had a very famous surname...

Oops! I should have thought of that, shouldn't I? OK, here goes but with only a tenuous connection to the Axis History Forum.

Who was awarded a Victoria Cross on only the recommendation of the enemy?

Good luck,
