German units are the enemies coming down from the top of the screen to the bottom of the screen.
Most german troops come this way but there are special troops like the unit from the Brandenburg that comes anywhere at the side of the screen. As of now, none of the german units can curve their movements, it is a purely straight path.
This is a Volkssturm, they are the most poorly trained unit in the german arsenal. They usually run away if their comrades die or they get shot at too much. When he runs he has a red band across his arm.
