Among the most curious of the Green Devils
Bored? DW just released this interesting 40~ min doc on Gerhard Mertins including first-hand interviews with his widow.
Who was Mertins? One of Kurt Student’s original fallschirmjägers, he was a Gran Sasso raider (and a Knights Cross recipient) in WWII, then became a key shadow man during the Cold War including working for/with the West German BND intelligence organ. This later included moving and shaking in the Middle East and South America with names like Pinochet and Carlos the Jackal popping up.
