Uncle Joe, descending to personal insults does'nt enhance your opinion. None of us on here are anti-German in any shape, way, or form. No doubt Dietrich, like most general's, and most troops, in Normandy knew they were on a loser, soon after things got under way. You did'nt have to be a intellectual giant to realize that.
Dietrich was a very good leader of men, and I have never picked up an action where the LSSAH disappointed. Commanding, at times over 20,000 men, is no mean feat.
