My grandfather on my fathers side fought in the US army (101st airborne 502nd 2 combat jumps 9 think thats what my uncle told me) and my grandfather on my mothers side fought for the german army (fallschirmjager no combat jumps 100% sure) no BS both paratroopers if the German army had invaded russia 1st and didn't fight a war on two fronts they would have destroyed the Russians, and had Rommel been the 'fuhrer' there is a very high possibility the Germans might have rules Europe, but both the German and Americans soldiers had great fighting spirit, i studied the germans before the UK and US got involved and their technology was greatly superior they were some of the fiercest troops ever, the Americans pulled victory from the ashes of defeat many times, the russians just swarmed the Germans. had stalin not been their leader they would have been a superior fighting force.
(Not my account)
My grandfather who fough for the germans was a crack shot and iron hard man who never gave up, if he applied that into the war then i would understand why the germans were so tough and to this day he still does not regret fighting and said had his country not surrendered he would have fought on
and my US army grandfather was natural leader and a fanatical soldier,
