    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.

      @Red Square
      I want you to read this man's words carefully, and if you don't know who Georgy Zhukov is, then just stop talking about the Soviets during WW2.
      "Now they say that the allies never helped us, but it can't be denied that the Americans gave us so many goods without which we wouldn't have been able to form our reserves and continue the war," Soviet General Georgy Zhukov said after the end of WWII.
      "We didn’t have explosives, gunpowder. We didn’t have anything to charge our rifle cartridges with. The Americans really saved us with their gunpowder and explosives. And how much sheet steel they gave us! How could we have produced our tanks without American steel? But now they make it seem as if we had an abundance of all that. Without American trucks we wouldn’t have had anything to pull our artillery with."
      And I NEVER said they were defenseless, but they had no chance without American supplies. Even Zhukov understood this fact.

      Umm, the Soviets only won because of America sending them a crapload of materials.
      The Soviets had zero chance without America.
      Not sure how that makes them better exactly TBH.

    The term "Mechanized Infrantry" didn't exist until first infrantry fighting vehicles was fielded in 60's with specialized troop capabicity. German Sdfkz and American M3 halftrack was just only armoured trucks.

    The German army was one of the least well equipped with vehicles - unfortunately your video promotes the 'excepted truth' that they had a massive amoured juggernaut during the war. Not completely correct. 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

    “Es ist kein Mensch, es ist kein Tier, es ist ein Panzergrenadier!”
    That’s a little funny sentence in German, some Soldiers still say today, it means (more ore less),
    “"It's not a human, it's not an animal, it's a Panzergrenadier!".
    In German it’s funny, because it rhymes. Greetings from Germany!
