1. "HITLER’S CHIEF OF STAFF LATER BECAME NATO’S CHIEF OF STAFF"
"Adolf Beuno Heinrich Ernst Heusinger . . . was a German military officer, whose career spanned the German Empire, the Weimar Republic, Nazi Germany and West Germany . . . He served as acting Chief of the General Staff of the Army for two weeks in 1944 . . . He later became a general for West Germany and served as head of the West German military from 1957 to 1961 as well as Chairman of the NATO Military Committee from 1961 to 1964."
CHIEF OF STAFF [OPERATIONS AND PLANNING] OF THE WEHRMACHT FOR TWO WEEKS!
"So instead of facing trial and paying for the crimes he committed, this war criminal who personally signed orders to murder allied POW’s during the war, this human trash that helped Hitler plan and carry out the atrocities and war crimes that the German army perpetuated in Europe and Russia, this psychopathic murderer was allowed to rebuild the West German army and later to become one of NATO‘s heads in Europe."
Additionally and within context thanks to the Internet web site Quora:
2. "How many former Wehrmacht generals helped form the new Bundeswehr?"
Ten flag officers of either general or admiral rank. Those named:
*- Hans Speidel *- Friedrich Foertsch *- Adolf Heusinger *- Friedrich Ruge (Vice Admiral) *- Walter Gladisch (Admiral) *- Robert Knauss *- Fridolin von Senger und Etterlin *- Rudolf Meister *- Hans Röttiger *- Heinrich von Vietinghoff-Scheel
IT CAN ARGUED THAT THESE MEN WERE EXPERTS ON HOW TO FIGHT THE SOVIET RED ARMY AND ALSO AT THE SAME TIME EXPERTS ON HOW TO NOT FIGHT THE SOVIET RED ARMY?
3. "About how many former Wehrmacht and SS members joined the Bundeswehr?"
Considering Wehrmacht alone:
"According to the German government, in 1956 (the new German Army, Bundeswehr, was founded in 1955), 31 Generals (out of a total of 38) and 100 Colonels (237) were former soldiers of the Wehrmacht."
Regarding the (Waffen) SS:
"In 1961, 159 former SS officers, 330 former SS NCO’s and 210 former SS soldiers 'after rigorous screening' were allowed to serve as professional soldiers in the new German Army."
SS Mann as having been "screened" and almost all [if not all] having served at a lower level of command or merely a low-ranking troop. Screened as to participation in the OTHER THINGS. Devoted readers to the blog will know what I refer to as the OTHER THINGS!
Waffen SS the fighting arm of the SS. As to be distinguished [not entirely so] from those SS men that ran the death camps.
ONCE MORE, BUNDESWEHR TROOPS FORMERLY WEHRMACHT AND SS EXPERTS ON THE HOW TO AND HOW NOT TO FIGHT THE SOVIET RED ARMY? EXPERTISE IN THIS REGARD BY OTHER CONSTITUENT MEMBERS OF NATO TOTALLY LACKING!
