Why the German army never worried about ammunition during World War II

During the Second World War, only the German army did not worry about ammunition. Unless the army was surrounded, supplies could not be transported at all. In other words, after the Allied landing in Normandy , the U.S. forces were unable to keep up with the supplies of millions of U.S. forces operating in southern France. It relied heavily on captured German equipment to support it (plus the discovery of good German weapons). It was not until the Allied development of the front to the north of France, that is, after the occupation of the port of Antwerp in the Netherlands, that the US military used this port to provide a large supply. Delivered to Continental Europe.

This also explains why the final goal of the German Aden campaign was Dutch ports: the simple fact is that once the Dutch port of Antwerp is occupied, the allies on the second battlefield will run out of ammunition, similar to Dunkirk 's retreat will repeat! Unfortunately Yes, the German paratroopers waiting for the arrival of German ground forces took control of the main bridge to the Netherlands after the airborne, but they never waited for the ground troops!

During World War II, Germany set a precedent for modern industrial warfare. With the large-scale popularization of military vehicles, the issue of ammunition supply is no longer a problem. Needless to say, transportation routes in Germany and even Japan are acceptable. The Eighth Route Army , the New Fourth Army , and the militia on the battlefield behind them were climbing trains, railroads, and ambushing ghost transport teams all day, but they did not affect their battles in the South China Sea and occupied most of our country. Even in 1945, Japan's mountains and rivers ran out, but due to supply problems, it was unable to fight.

The German machine gunner, known as the Omaha Beach Monster, was an ordinary soldier of the German Wehrmacht's 352nd Infantry Division. His name is Hain Severo. This is still a fierce battle. When German supplies were unable to keep up, the man relied on his standard ammunition and fired 12,000 rounds in 9 hours. After running out of machine gun bullets, he continued to fire 400 rifles. He said, killed a regiment of landing troops! So, if you can fight again, you can shoot all the ammunition that can load a truck?

After all, compared to the old imperialist industrial powers, we were really poor during the Anti-Japanese War. In peacetime, the standard for the direct force of the army is 60 rounds per soldier, while other factions have more basic personnel than guns. Two people had less than one gun, one had only five shots, and all had bayonets. The standard ammunition of the German rifleman is 700 rounds per person. The rifleman has more ammunition than our machine gunman! Is there no supply vehicle to transport ammunition back and forth? The German semi-tracked transporter we often see in movies and TV is mainly responsible Deliver ammunition to the battlefield front. I haven't heard that German soldiers are unwilling to shoot, I'm afraid you'll hang up if you can't finish!
