Collectors Showcase CS00299 Battle of Nijmegen Series: 10.SS Panzer Division 'Frundsberg' Assault Team Set (1:30 Scale)
"If the tank succeeds, then victory follows."
- Major-General Heinz Guderian, "Achtung Panzer!"
The 10.SS Panzer Division Frundsberg or 10.SS-Panzer-Division Frundsberg was a German Waffen SS panzer division that saw action on both the Western and Eastern Fronts during World War II.
Originally, the name Karl der Grosse (Charlemagne) was used for some time in 1943, but French volunteers in the Wehrmacht and the Waffen-SS used Charlemagne (33rd Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS Charlemagne (1st French)), so the honor title Frundsberg was chosen, which refers to 16th Century German landsknecht commander Georg von Frundsberg.
It, and its "twin" Division, the 9.SS Panzer-Division Hohenstaufen, played an important part in holding the British Forces back in Normandy, particularly during Operation Epsom. Later, the Division was instrumental in stemming the Allied onslaught during Operation Market Garden at Nijmegen, in the Netherlands, at which time it, along with the 9.SS Panzer, constituted the II SS Panzer Corps.
