Nazi - Generic Foreign Volunteer, 1942
rating: 0+x

By Michele A.

This is a non-German volunteer who chose to serve the Third Reich. He was a farmer, he is from a manpower pool not as good as that of the Generic German Infantryman, and his training was skimpier. Apart from his (unspecified) native language, he speaks some broken German in order to understand basic orders.
