  Germany said that it's 120 KSK commandos would not be given their own area of operation, but would continue to work with American special forces and commandos. The KSK commandos are the first German troops to engage in combat since 1945 (not counting some communist East German military advisers who may have had to defend themselves in places like Africa. German peacekeepers in the Balkans have not had to fight.) KSK's achievement was celebrated late last year when a supply of quality German beer was flown in for the troops.
