The Wehrmacht (English: Defence Forces) were the unified armed forces of Nazi Germany from 1935 to 1945. It consisted of the Heer (army), the Kriegsmarine (navy) and the Luftwaffe (air force). The Wehrmacht is considered during the World War II the most powerful army in the German history.
The Supreme Commander of the Wehrmacht is the Führer Adolf Hitler in his capacity as Germany's head of state. The Heer is under command of the Generalfeldmarschall Wilheim Keitel. The Kriegsmarine is administrated by the Grobadmiral Erich Raeder and replaced by Karl Donitz after Raeder's retirement. The Luftwaffe is leaded by the Reichmarschall Hermann Göring.
In Wolfenstein: The New Order, the Wehrmacht discovered a secret placement of Da'at Yichud where the German soldiers stole the secrets inside the placement. All the information was given to General Wilheim Strasse, where he could develop his advanced weapons for the German Reich at his fortified compound. Despite the unsuccessful assault at the Deathshead's compound, General Strasse continued to develop his researches until the Wehrmacht won World War II by the creation of the atomic bomb. After the war, all armies of the world were absorbed by the military forces of the Third Reich and the Wehrmacht is now considered has the most powerful army of the history of mankind. All technologies developed inside the Deathshead's compound give the Wehrmacht more powerful each day until all soldiers are invincibles. Despite all these, all the enemies encountered in the New Order except Gen Strasse himself were all members of the SS.
