Use google translate to browse trough the webpage which in my opinion is very interesting.
You can also of course use - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poles_in_the_Wehrmacht

Re: Pillbox in warsaw ?

This is so called Tobruk bunkers (or Ringstand 58c). There were 60 or so of them built in Warszawa and as far as I know around half of them is still there (like the one above). One - taken out of the ground - can be seen in the Museum of Warsaw Uprising.

Are you sure that photo is depicting He.111 V4+FA downed near Mrotschen?! For me it looks like that plane is damage much more then 50%...

Re: German seaborn landing against Hela (1939) - info needed.

Hello all, as for the seaborn operation I would love to know what vessels would be used to carry the troop to either Gdynia or Hel (I omit the possibility of the landing on the beaches as pure S-F).

Re: German Army 1st september 1939

Here is Division Eberhardt , according to Bellin's book the names changed from Landespolizeiregiment 1 and 2 to 243 and 244 Infanterieregiment on 1-9- 1939. I have come across other names as well however. Danziger IR 1 and 2 for example.. I hope someone can shed some more light on the correct names...
