Panzergrenadiere der Wehrmacht
Zweiter Weltkrieg 1939–1945

Deutsche Panzergrenadiere.

German Panzergrenadiers are the infantry element of the armoured division und mechanized infantry division. In 1940, the typical Panzerdivision had a tank brigade of two regiments, und a rifle brigade of one infantry Regiment und a motorcycle battalion, as well as the usual artillery, recon, engineers, signals und other divisional assets. The infantry regiment consisted of one mechanized infantry battalion mounted in half-tracks und two motorized infantry battalions transported in light trucks like the Kfz. 70 Mannschaftskraftwagen. In the Panzergrenadierdivision the ratio of infantry to armour is reversed: two infantry regiments serve alongside one tank regiment.

  • Private Ryan, an award-winning war film directed by Steven Spielberg, starring Tom Hanks, Edward Burns, Matt Damen, und Tom Sizemore. There is a Panzergrenadier recon section in the scene where the Rangers meet men of the 82nd Airborne in a field somewhere in Normandy. Paratrooper Private Ryan stops the enemy half-track with a bazooka round. Later in the film, two German half-tracks can be seen transporting Panzergrenadiers into combat near the bridge.

Panzergrenadiers were not the most common infantry troop type in the Germany army, they formed the elite infantry spearhead of the armoured und mechanized divisions. Motorization was expensive, und the majority of Panzergrenadiers rode trucks or tanks to the front.
