Re: SS Falschirmjägers Market-Garden

Were there any SS Fallschirmjägers fighting in the Reichswald area around the end of September 1944 and early November 1944?? If so what was the unit?? They would have been in contact with US 82nd Airborne troops. Thank you. To me these troops seem to be carrying the German paratrooper frock: http:...
