[DWJ] pronunciation of Wermacht?

My kids have been asking how to pronounce Wermacht. I just finished reading
_Year of the Griffin_ to Peter (yes, we still read bedtime stories even
though he's eleven and in sixth grade), and started out saying it
German-fashion, with an initial vee-sound, but then it sounded wrong and I
anglicized it. And does he ever escape his, erm, final fate? (I know, silly
to avoid spoilers for a book that's been out for years, but DWJ's written so
many that quite likely there are folks here who haven't gotten to it yet.)
I did check the archives (also under Wehrmacht), and it seems we've never
discussed Wermacht before, which seems unlikely, but who knows.
I have _Enchanted Glass_ on order from the US Amazon-- added it and the
latest Young Wizards book (Diane Duane, also not out until April) to an
order back in December so as to get free shipping for the thing I was
ordering for Christmas. So I won't have it until April, mump, mump. I guess
they can be rewards for getting the taxes done.
