The Devil's Brigade was originated in July of 1942. Under the official title 1st Special Service Force, American and Canadian soldiers were combined together to form a special task force trained for the battle behind enemy lines. The origin of many special units can be traced back to this special force. Due to numerous nocturnal operations where all faces were blackened for camouflage, the German Wehrmacht invented their nick name Black Devils, which bore witness of the great respect they had of their enemy although the unit was relatively small. In 1943 and 1944, the 1st SSF successfully completed many operations in Italy and France and was able to influence a multitude of important situations.
