The Grossdeutschland Division was one of the most elite units of the Wehrmacht during World War II. It was formed in 1942 from the remnants of the 1st Panzer Division and the 2nd Panzer Division. The division was initially commanded by Generalmajor Walter von Seydlitz-Kurzbach and was assigned to Army Group Center.

The Grossdeutschland Division was a unique unit in many ways. It was one of the few divisions in the Wehrmacht that was fully mechanized. This gave it a significant advantage in mobility and firepower over its opponents. The division was also one of the first units to be equipped with the new Panther tank. The Panther was a superior tank to the Soviet T-34 and gave the Grossdeutschland Division a significant advantage in combat.

The Grossdeutschland Division saw action on all the major fronts of the war. It fought in the Battle of Kursk, the Battle of the Bulge, and the Battle of Berlin. The division was also involved in the invasion of Normandy and the fighting in Italy.

The Grossdeutschland Division was one of the most successful units of the Wehrmacht. It was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross 27 times, more than any other division in the German army. The division also earned the nickname "The Unconquerables" for its outstanding performance in combat.

The Grossdeutschland Division was disbanded in 1945. However, its legacy lives on. The division's traditions are still carried on by the Bundeswehr, the modern German army.
