History Channel tonight @ 8PM EST and again at 12AM

I know it's a late posting for this, but...

Just like what's going on in Iraq now, this happened almost 60 years ago.

After the end of WWII, Allied forces faced guerrilla bombings and attacks in occupied Germany--Nazi loyalists tried to derail reconstruction by sabotage and killing collaborators, while Werewolves, an underground organization of die-hard SS officers, boasted of rebirth of the Party. Find out if their bark was worse than their bite in this dogged investigation into how Werewolves terrorized military and civilian targets, and the Allied attempt to purge Germany's past at denazification tribunals

I saw that. It took over two years to calm the situation down. Funny never realized that that had even occured. I guess focus was on the Nuremburg trials and the Marshall Plan (VMI Class of '01) and this was sort of glossed over in any of the books I'ld read.

I personally have my doubts. If one considers the situation in Berlin (for example) when the Sovs were causing all sort of trouble and there was an undeclared war going on between Western and Soviet intelligence services. Many of these attacks could be put-down to 'werewolf' activity.

There is little evidence to suggest that the 'werewolves' were anything more than a paper tiger. Yes, the high-command of the Nazi regime had a number of plans in place to turn the occupied territory into an inferno, however few of these plans ever came to fruition...Jim

I believe that there was still Guerrilla activity in the Soviet zone of Austria until at least 1950 but most of the werewolves were just kids anyway

But kids can kill all the same, and they make smaller targets
