Isn't quality and training abstracted in the EXPERIENCE of the ground elements in a unit?
It's not just "Training", as Flav says it's overall military proficiency.
Regardless of how "green" the recruits are, these are factors such as officer quality, general staff work, planning, institutional experience and memory, and quality of NCOs. The Wehrmacht scored very high in all of these, even as they were putting raw recruits into the line.
These are also factors that are not affected by the fortunes of war or capture of territory, but were rather impacted by losses of officers and NCO's at the front. More were created through combat to replace them, but the Wehrmacht experienced a slow degradation in this area, and this was the main cause of their slow loss of military proficiency as the war advanced. I don't think German "morale" really collapsed until the very end of the war.
Many have pointed out that Italian and Romanian troops often fought bravely, and it's unfair they have low "Morale". They did fight bravely, but the Italian and Romanian armies had numerous other problems which hindered efficiency; an office corps that advanced more on social status than merit; poor staff training; lousy communications arms; crappy logistical services.
