Grossdeutschland Artillery Feldwebel's Shoulder Straps



The Division "GroƟdeutschland was an elite combat unit of the German Army (Heer) that fought on the Eastern Front in World War II. The unit originally started out as a ceremonial guard unit in the 1920's and by the late 1930's had grown into a regiment of the combined Wehrmacht German armed forces. The regiment would later be expanded and renamed Infantry Division GroƟdeutschland in 1942, and after significant reorganization was renamed Panzergrenadier Division GroƟdeutschland in May 1943. In November 1944, while the division retained its status as a panzergrenadier division, some of its subordinate units were expanded to divisional status, and the whole group of divisions were reorganized as Panzerkorps GroƟdeutschland.
