I think I have to agree with USMC Johnny on:
1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment
US ARMY
VIETNAM 1965


Lt Col. Hal Moore's Battalion

It would have to be because of the bravery of Col Moore and his troops.

5/ 6 Marines(the original Dogs)
- Battle of Bellau Wood

And speaking of Raiders- Carlson's Raiders!

I guess my computer doesn't like "devil" because I don't see it here...[img][/img]

My favorite unit from history is F-Company from WW2 that paradropped over Sameria e Gliese. 3/4 of the company was annihalated, but the remaining 10 soldiers out of 67 bea the living crap out of the germans.


F-COMPANY RULES.

The Black Watch / Heroism beyond the call of duty in WW1
6th Airborne Div. / For their antics on D-Day
101st Airborne / Those guys really showed some good soldiering in 1944
Royal Engineers / My Grandfather's, not sure which unit 1940-1944
Serb Army/Partisans of Belgrade / Not sure which unit in either of them, but my grandfather served in both 1939-1954

The Clan Davidson at the Battle of Invernahavon (where my Clan was abandoned by the MacPhersons and decimated by the Camerons).

The Jacobite Army of His Highness Prince Charles Edward Stuart at Culloden (OK it was a poorly led disaster, but in defeat a legend was born).

Ist Airborne Division Provost Company who parachuted into and fought at Arnhem.

My favourite would be the German Division "Grossdeutschland". A very skilled outfit that fought very bravely on the Eastern Front WW2 (particularly at Belgorod during the Battle of Kursk).

Francisco Franco's "La Division De Azul" which served against the Soviets under German Command until 1943. Many of it's men went on to fight to the death in Berlin. A pitty such good men had to fight with such an evil man like Hitler.

And of course, 1st SFOD-D

Does anyone know what legion Constantine the Great commanded at Milvian Bridge?
