Really? I’ll need to read up about nordwind sometime; the 45th division are\were our Homeys, ok ng. All the German commanders knew not to mess with the 45th but of course Hitler was nuts. Anyone who gets a look at the tbird dies you know esp krauts.
I believe the 45th. liberated Dachau. I remember reading an account of the liberation by a GI who was there. He was in a half-track with some of his buddies and seeing the horror in front of them they saw a German soldier walking towards them. “All of a sudden we see this big tall Kraut with blond hair, good looking guy and he’s wearing so much Red Cross sh!t he looked like a friggin’Christmas tree’’. ‘’One of our guys spoke German and started yelling at him ,”Red Cross, huh? “Well where the hell were you five minutes ago to help these people you son of a bitch?’’ “Every guy in the column unloaded a full clip on that Kraut s.o.b’’.
