|10th Parachute Division|
|Engagements||World War II|
A 10th Fallschirmjäger Division was originally ordered to be formed in September 1944, but this order was cancelled. The division was formed in March 1945, commanded by Gustav Wilke, out of a disparate collection of Luftwaffe units including existing parachute units in the Italian theatre, and crews from Jagdgeschwader 101. It contained the 28th, 29th and 30th Fallschirmjäger Regiments, and the 10th Fallschirmjäger Artillery Regiment.
The division fought in Austria and Moravia, surrendering to the Soviet Army in May 1945 at the end of the war.
