Yes, I am aware of the article. It has some interesting information. I am not surprised that there was some postwar residtance that resulted in American deaths. I see no evidence, however, that the efforts of the Wolverines were as signficant as the current resistance.
Again, the fundamental question remains unanswered: how many Americans died in combat in post-war German guerrilla action? If that question can't be answered, or even an estimate approximated, then the attempt to make a comparison falls flat.
BTW, I am skeptical on another count. Most Germans, even former Nazis, in the American zone had little reason to resist because they were happy to be under American not Soviet occupation.
