The Panzergrenadier Division Großdeutschland was a German Army division that fought during World War II. It was formed in 1942 from the Großdeutschland Regiment, which had already gained a reputation for being one of the most elite units in the Wehrmacht.

Originally intended to be an armored division, the Großdeutschland division instead became a panzer grenadier division, meaning that its soldiers were equipped with half-tracks and other armored vehicles but also had infantry training. The division fought on both the Eastern and Western fronts, participating in many of the major battles of the war.

The division was particularly known for its toughness and tenacity, as well as for its high standards of training and discipline. It was often used as a “fire brigade” unit, sent in to plug gaps in the German lines or to shore up defenses that were in danger of collapsing.

By the end of the war, the Panzergrenadier Division Großdeutschland had suffered heavy losses, and many of its soldiers had been decorated for valor. Today, it is remembered as one of the most elite and formidable units of the German Army during World War II.
