I have been reading some World War II history, and I always see certain armies or divisions identified as 'crack,' such as the 'crack Panzer Division' or the 'crack Airborne Division.' What does that mean?

Crack in these terms means the best or the elite forces,not your ordinary G.I Joe

Just by way of support for mo's answer, this is an excerpt from Dictionary.com:
Excelling in skill or achievement; first-rate: a crack shot; a crack tennis player.
