Many different military units stood out during WWII. One such was the 21st Panzer Division. They were quite the colorful bunch, so much so that Battlefront has put together a booklet about them for Flames of War. You can go check that out now.
From the announcement:
The 21st Panzer Division is one of the more colourful divisions to fight in the Normandy Campaign. Descended from Rommel's legendary Afrika Korps, they would have attracted attention anyway. On top of this, their equipment with rather unique modified French tanks and half-tracks ensured their lasting interest to wargamers. We opted to give them their own booklet and release window highlighting this unusual division and its equipment.
