This one is easy for me, personally. The most highly-decorated and legendary division in the entire US military establishment is the 1st Marine Division , "The Old Breed" as they were called in WWII. They served at Guadalcanal, New Britain, Peleliu and Okinawa in that war, then in Korea, Vietnam and both Gulf Wars, with countless other actions in between those major engagements.
In every SPWaW USMC long campaign I play, I put names of units and commanders of the Old Breed into my core force. It adds to the immersion level, and when a historic figure falls , you feel remorse that a promising career was cut short--conversely, it is encouraging when one of the posthumous MOH winners somehow survives the conflict under your command.
This is my favorite division, and any other division of any other nation would be hard put to match their record.
What do you guys think?
