Teufel Hunden

Posted by Maddog on May 28, 2003

Teufel Hunden (devil dogs)- a name give the United States Marines by the German opposition in WWII. I hope I am not overstepping the bounds of this forum but I figured if anyone could answer this then you guys could.

The word Hunden does not exist in the German language as far as I can tell. Hund- equates to dog in English and hunde- dogs. I cannot however find anything about Hunden except for German websites which use the word hunden that I cannot (correctly used from a previous discussion) read however, obviously have something to do with dogs.

Does the word Hunden exist and is it proper, misspelled, slang or what?
