Hitler went commando?

The order was a direct result of an incident on one of the Channel Islands (easy to google)

During the commando raid a couple of Germans were taken prisoner and their hands bound behind their backs. Unfortunately during a paniced withdrawal (the commandos were new to the game). The German prisoners died (how and by whom is up for debate) when the bodies were later found, their hands were still bound. Hitler apparently lost it and issued this new order applying to commandos.

Might be just another story, but the incident certainly happened at about this time.
