How much did German Stormtroopers of WW1 influence World War Two tactics for both sides? Or were the Stormtrooper strategies just considered too outdated? Keep up the great work and Indy you do kinda look like Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul)

German stormtroopers helped revolutionize warfare and Special Forces during the Great War. The Austro-Hungarians and Ottomans had their own shock troopers in WW1. After the war, did the Allies create groups based on Stormtroopers? What all strategies and tactics that were used by the Stormtroopers were used in WW2? Were any used and assimilated into modern military tactics for the 40s? Happy Star Wars day and May the Fourth be with you!


In many ways Blitzkrieg was just the stormtrooper concept mechanized. The panzer divisions broke through and left defended positions to be mopped up by the infantry. And they had the same issue, once the advance outran it’s supply it stalled and the panzers had to wait for the infantry to consolidate the captured ground. Just as the stormtroopers ran out of steam before Amiens, the panzers ran out of steam before Moscow.
From the allied perspective the Stormtroopers failed, while in the hundred days their tactics were successful.
