    Historical Notes

    The rough terrain and extreme conditions of mountain regions requires specially-trained soldiers. In the German military of World War II, these units were called Gebirgsjäger (or “mountain hunter”). These specialist troops were not as heavily armed as regular infantry, but their cold-weather training and expertise in difficult terrain made them invaluable in many battles fought during the war.

    All told, there were 19 mountain divisions established by Germany during World War II. They served in operations in Poland, the Soviet Union, the Balkans, North Africa, and France. They were typically equipped with the short-barreled Mauser K98 Carbine rifle, called the Gewehr 33/40, MP40 submachine guns, and MG34 or MG42 light machine guns. Along with the Fallschirmjäger, these mountain troops were considered to be the most elite infantry units in the Wehrmacht.
