Elite Wehrmacht Units

Post by Herman » 29 Jan 2003 12:14

Does anyone have any good links/information about the Elite Units of the German Army in World War Two?

I have become very interested in this aspect of the German Military.

Areas rthat I'm interested in are units like the Waffen SS, Paratroopers, Brandenburg Commandoes, etc

Cheers

Hi Hermann

Not wishing to dampen your enthusiasm but remeber the word Elite is relative and that many of the regular Heer units were considered Elite but history tends to focus on the more glamorous and evocative units.
