Probably the most notorious was Bach-Zelewski who commanded the suppression of the Warsaw Uprising. Another was Skorzeny. But it’s not just in those units, but across German society as a whole.
Kaminsky probably wins that dubious badge.
I guess that, having collectively wrecked Europe's energy supply through green zealotry, France is hoping to get some of that nice Russian gas that keeps Germany afloat.
France led the 80's charge for alternative energy sources away from coal-fired power stations. One of the reasons for the French equivalent of the 'Rust belt', up in Northern France. - 'Parmi Les Chtis'
Probably more dependent on Nuclear energy than anywhere else in Yurp right now. The Greens loathe nuclear.
So far to my knowledge, France has only one tidal energy system - The Rance.
Unsighted on their take-up of wind power thus far.
( Interestingly The Economist tells me China has doubled its Nuclear energy output in the last five years....maybe they're also getting the message)
Last time I was in Germany ( 2009) I noticed wind farms were starting to proliferate. Denmark had offshore wind turbines in 1983.....
