The armoured SS panzergrenadiers and their reconnaissance company brothers had a lot in common, being fanatically tough infantry mounted in armoured half-tracks. The real difference came in the form of their transport. While the panzergrenadiers fought from their big Sd Kfz 251 half-tracks, the reconnaissance company were mounted in the smaller, stealthier Sd Kfz 250 half-track. Its smaller size meant that they needed twice as many to carry a platoon, but that also meant that they had twice as many machine-guns when they needed them.
D-Day: Waffen SS
The Waffen-SS were the elite combat arm of Adolf Hitler’s personal bodyguard. Fighting wherever the fire was hottest, they had proved their mettle many times in the cauldron of battle on the Eastern Front. With the American and British forces poised to invade Normandy, they were brought west to France to rebuild, tripling their strength to become far stronger than the handful of regular Army Panzer divisions facing the Allies. When the Allies landed on D-Day, the SS were sent in to throw them back into the sea. In the battles that followed, their unswerving determination and stubborn refusal to retreat made them the most feared opponents the Allies faced.
