Today I was reading some articles about US soldiers compared to Greman soldiers, in general. These articles saw German soldiers as superior to US soldiers. They ignore the fact that the German Army was a Veteran army of 3 years

undefeated at the time of our entry into the war. That is what we faced, now add in fear of failure for failure was often a death sentence at the hands of their own Army. Further, when the Germans were reeling from defeat after defeat, they were fighting
now for their homes and a Nation in ruins. These articles also ignored the fact that the US Army improved with every battle, why, because we learned from our mistakes. Our Troops were noted for their rallying faster than their German counterparts
who were more dependent on its chain of command than the American Troops. Hindsight is 20/20 when you choose the facts you wish to remember. @threadreaderapp unroll
