    During the 1930s Germany motorised and mechanized infantry came into being, organized as part of a ‘combined arms’ formation. The term Panzergrenadier came about in 1942, classifying all the mechanised and motorised units as armored units instead of infantry.

    They are called Grenadier, yet they absolutely have nothing to do with using grenades? That makes no sense

      It makes sense. In the 17th and 18th century grenadiers, because of their purpose, were the tallest and strongest soldiers and considered the elite of the line infantry. Times changed, line infantry was obsolete but the term grenadier stayed for the mechanised infantry, which due to its high assault momentum, protection and firepower was the most hard-hitting infantry branch.

    2:11"and walk on foot". How else does one walk if it's not on foot? He should have just said "and walk".

    The term Panzergrenadier had only been introduced in 1942. The level of motorization in the Heer was low until 1942 and the level of mechanization was very very low until 1942. At the start of the war in 1939, Germany had 4 !!! motorized divisions and no mechanized divisions. The Panzer Divisions had regiments of motorized infantry attached to them. It was only for Barbarossa that the Wehrmacht stocked up on their motorization, fielding 14 motorized divisions and 19 (mostly half strength) tank divisions.
    Still only 27 % of the Heer was motorized by the time Barbarossa started in June 1941! So the myth of the German technology and maneuverability advantage is just that, a myth!
    three quarters of the German Army invaded the Soviet Union by foot! They marched thousands of kilometres, just like the Romans would do, 2000 years earlier.
