Educate me on this group. I have heard they cause a lot of casualties after the war was over.
The Werewolves were originally organized by the SS and the Hitler Youth as a diversionary operation on the fringes of the Third Reich, which were occupied by the Western Allies and the Soviets in the autumn of 1944. Even women and children launched themselves upon the enemy. The Werewolves specialized in ambushes and sniping, and took the lives of many Allied and Soviet soldiers and officers. Buildings housing Allied and Soviet staffs were favorite targets for Werewolf bombing. Although the Werewolves originally limited themselves to guerrilla warfare with the invading armies, they soon began to undertake scorched-earth measures and vigilante actions.
