Stop watching those old WW II documentaries. We kicked the fight out of the Germans in 2 wars. They lost millions in WW II. They know what war is like and what it costs them both in military lives and civilian. Bottom line, we are not dealing with the highly trained and motivated German Army that you see in the old documentaries.

Don’t Kid Yourself.The One thing that the World does not want to see is a German Army like that that Existed during the First and Second World War.

The German Army as it stands Now is a highly trained army and I would Not want to go into combat against them.

Its very Hard to kill a warrior culture in a country and Veterans of the Wehrmact I’m sure have passed on their knowledge of fighting to the New Generation of German troops.

Very true.. the Heer, Luftwaffe, and Marine (The Bundeswehr) are tough customers now days. But its NOT that powerful.

Remember.. two of its brigades are joint forces... one Dutch and one French... They would not participate in any action involving another NATO nation
