CHAPTER II. ORGANIZATION OF THE FIELD FORCES
Section VI. COMBAT TROOPS (FECHTENDE TRUPPEN)
17. Propaganda Troops (Propagandatruppen)
Formerly belonging to the signal troops, these became a separate arm in the beginning of 1943. They consist mainly of news reporters, photographers, film camera men, and radio commentators. Their main function is front line reporting, but they also conduct propaganda addressed to the enemy as well as to German troops. The basic unit is the propaganda company. (See Figure 139.)
