The Grossdeutschland Division was the German Army’s most elite division on the Eastern Front in WW2.They founded the Grossdeutschland in 1939 to prove that the German Army could field a more elite division than the Waffen SS. Members of the division had strict selection criteria and were recruited from all over Germany. All other WWII German Army Divisions were made up from men from a certain locality.Grossdeutschland division, or Greater Germany Division, was the exception in many ways. The division was involved in the most intense combat on the Eastern Front from 1941-1945. In 1940 the GrossDeutschland Motorized Regiment served in France, and in 1941 was sent to Russia. It was then wiped out and reformed at least five times. Each time it was improved in size and in equipment it received. In 1942 it became a Motorized Infantry Division, in 1943 it became a Panzer Grenadier Division. By 1945, it was the main element of the Grossdeutschland Panzer Corps destined to fight to the end on the Eastern Front in World War Two.
