Kavallerie-Divisionen questions

Postby Paulus II » Wed Jul 30, 2008 2:29 am

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me about the supporting units that were part of the Reichsheer Kavallerie-Divisionen?

The Reiter-Regimente and their composition are all clear (well…..reasonably clear) but I haven’t been able to find anything about the divisions having Aufklärungs- or Pioniere- and other such units. Also wondering about divisional artillery or an artillery regiment, did they have such a thing? Composition of the Divisionsstab is also a very dark grey area.

And a question about “Kavallerie der Wehrmacht” by Klaus Christian Richter, I’m thinking of buying this book but would like an opinion of fellow members about its quality before I do so.

Any and all information is most welcome, thanks in advance,

Best regards,

Paul

Hi Paul,

Whilst I can't help... I know a man who can. Jan-Hendrik is our resident cavalry expert aided by his other half (they're also both horse riders). It's worth dropping in on his Panzer-Archiv forum as there is reams of stuff on Wehrmacht cavalry divisions over there.

Thank you Richard, I'll hop over and look around there.

Never knew about the cavalrylove of Jan-Hendrik but I should have thought of Panzer-Archiv, even for this non Panzer question!

Thanks again,

Paul

Thanks, Richard :D :D

"Kavallerie der Wehrmacht" is more a pictoral overview :wink: More detailed is "Die Geschichte der deutschen Kavallerie 1919-1945" by Mr. Rchter, see

Review by Tobias Giebel

One may ought that Mr. Richter is a personal friend of mine, but this one is definitly the most comprehensive book on this topic :up:
