German Luftwaffe Field Division Squad

After the the initial spectacular success of the German invasion of Russia in
1941 the invasion slowed to a crawl as the weather and hard fighting ground
down their formations. Desperate to shore up the front seven regiments were
formed of non-flying personnel taken from the German air force, the Luftwaffe.
These regiments were equipped with standard infantry weapons, and sent to
quieter areas of the front to gain experience.

As the war continued more and more Luftwaffe personnel were drafted into what
became Luftwaffe Field Divisions, 21 divisions being formed with 12,500 men in
each at full strength. They wore the trademark Luftwaffe blue/grey uniforms and
many also donned the long camouflaged M1942 jacket or zeltbahn tent capes.

Despite their poor levels of training, they fought bravely in Normandy, in
Italy and on the Russian front. The average age of the soldier in these units
was 30 years old - much older than other front line troops. These
difficulties led them to take more casualties than the regular army units but
despite these shortcomings Luftwaffe Field Division troops earned 18 of the
coveted Knights Cross medals in the three years that they saw service.

Contains a 10-man Luftwaffe Field Division Squad:

1 NCO and two soldiers with SMGs

1 MG13 LMG team

2 Riflemen with Panzerfausts

3 riflemen

The models come supplied unpainted and unassembled, contents may vary
from that pictured.
