    As time went on the Volkssturm became more important.

    How effective were these as a fighting force compared to the regular troops?

    I am still interested in this question is anyone can answer it.

    Apparently not very effective. A lengthy article about the Volksturm is in Wikipedia which you may have already seen but I believe if you have not
    read it you will find that it will answer your question and have a lot more info besides. Try ttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkssturm#Training_and_impact
