What is "kl.Dorp-Merselo" ?
According to Google Maps (see map pictures below) Merselo is a village to the west of Venray as the text says.
And Kl.Dorp is Kleindorp, a road going north from Merselo towards Overloon.

Re: A little bit of idiomatic German

I ran this by a German friend of mine, and his translation came out like this:
And our troups don't have the courage anymore as in 39,40 and 41,too.
They have the will, have discipline, but their uncoditional faith has got a "crack" .
Where will this lead to?
Just to add another voice into it :D

Re: Not been here for a while

I feel a need to put some slime into the translation :? :D That should go well whith the flowery language and, at least for me, makes the scene even more picturesque. I am a little unsure about whether or not the gun smoke drifts or "hangs". But when I read this I kind of "saw" the gun smoke hanging...

Re: More subordinate clause loveliness

The meaning should be something like (no literal translation): It is unbearable/unacceptable that the leadership suffers from a 'numbers psychosis' which only highlights the large number of enemy units and on our own side especially the weakend fighting ability that has occured, which is known to th...

Re: Was ist los hier?

A relatively simply snippet, but for some reason I can't quite crack it. Rasendes Feuer schlägt ihnen entgegen. Für Augenblicke an den Sturmgeschützen vorbeigehend werfen sie ihre Handgranaten und geballten Ladungen dem Gegner in die Feldstellungen. I'll admit it is a little bit nitpicking, but I'd...
