AmericanGerman (SS)
Only the truly fanatic remained in the old town by 19 April. General Simon now commanded only isolated bands of SS men or Luftwaffe troops here and there. Nazi political officers – known jokingly as “golden pheasants” for their love of fancy but phony uniform decorations – roamed the city enforcing the “no retreat” policy. Holding out in the ancient citadel, Simon was determined to keep the old town secure as a birthday present for the Fuhrer on the following day.
