Many question why the German army was so big, heres the answer. Hitler decided that his army wouldn't last long if it was voluntary so he decided to start the conscription by sending in men in their 18-26 then when those died he would send in the 27-33 then when those died up to 34-44 then 45-54,55-64, then he would start by 15-20 all again.
