Hans-Ulrich von Luck und Witten was born into a family with a long military history, including service with Frederick the Great in the Eighteenth Century. Von Luck joined the German Army in 1929 and was quickly appointed to the newly-created Panzerwaffe, or Armoured Force. His reputation as a commander was sealed in the deserts of North Africa where he led the reconnaissance battalion of 21. Panzerdivision. In the comradely atmosphere of the desert, even his opponents knew and respected his abilities. After teaching at the reconnaissance school in Paris, he took command of 125. Panzergrenadierregiment of 21. Panzerdivision under his old comrade Rommel. Von Luck's regiment was conducting anti-invasion exercises when the British 6th Airborne Division began landing in the early morning hours of D-Day and he was one of the few German commanders to organise local counterattacks. His regiment continued to fight the British airborne position for the rest of the month of June.
