Krauts was the most common. Squareheads, Jerries, some used terms left over from WWI, and called them the Huns, or the Boche.


"Jerries" ( A jerry was also slang for a Chamber pot, as it looked like a German Steel Helmet) Older soldiers would call them Huns ( In the 1900s Kaiser Wilhelm made a speech when he said that Germans on the way to put down the Boxershould act like the Huns--he meant that they should make others fear them) Older soldiers from the officer class often used the French expression Bosche Squareheads came from the briefing soldiers received on how to identify German soldiers from their square shaped helmets. Kraut (Crept into British palrance from US and Canadian troops) from Sauerkraut--stewed cabbage. Heinie -obsolete by WW2, was often used by older civilians, mainly Americans and Canadians--from Heinrich.
