During World War II the Germans fielded 29 panzergrenadier divisions, in which fully motorized infantry units operated alongside tanks and assault guns. This in-depth analysis examines the recruitment and specialized training of these units and how that training translated to successful battlefield tactics in the Lightning War from 1939 to 1941 and on the Eastern Front after 1942.
