…Forces.

"Hitler's daring and pioneering special forces served in every German theatre of action. This is the most comprehensive account of an unusual and profoundly successful band of men.
Lawrence Paterson traces the origins of the small unit, the brainchild of Admiral Wilhelm Canaris and part of his Abwehr intelligence unit, from before the outbreak of war in 1939 to its breaking up in 1944 when it was largely converted to a conventional Panzergrenadier division. At that point, many Brandenburgers transferred to Otto Skorzeny's SS Jägdverbände. Paterson details the roles of key individuals, such as Theodor von Hippel, along with forensic details of key operations."

Read a number of books and articles about these guys … pretty interesting reading. And frequently were pretty darn good at what they did …
