About the Großdeutschland Division:
The Großdeutschland Division (lit. Greater Germany Division) was an élite German Heer combat unit which saw action during World War II.
Großdeutschland is sometimes mistakenly perceived as being a part of the Waffen-SS, whereas it was actually a Heer unit. It was, along with the Panzer Lehr Division, the best equipped unit in the Wehrmacht, receiving equipment before all other units (including Waffen-SS units). The GD Division served exclusively on the Eastern Front. It was annihilated near Pillau in May 1945.
