Well this one has me completely beaten.

Dieser Ort war von Grauen gezeichnet. Das Auge suchte unwillkürlich nach einem Galgen oder irgendeinem anderen Anzeichen, das den Ort zu einer Schädelstätte machte. Es stand wie das Klagen Unerlöster um diese Mauerreste, Unerlöster, die zwar die ganze Welt durchirren, vielleicht bis zum fernsten Ste...

What is Allewerdern?

Der Wind wurde immer stärker. Er wehte von Land, brachte immer mehr Sand mit sich. Wenn man weit schauen wollte, sah man alles ganz diesig. Mund, Nase, Augen und Ohren, und auf dem Kopf überall Sand. Das ist schrecklich. Es kühlte auch nicht ein bißchen ab. Die Nacht kam; ich legte mich in mein Zelt...

A little letter with which I'm struggling

in particular the sentence in bold. Mami, ich möchte Dir etwas schreiben, aber nicht lachen. Du weißt doch die ganze Sache steht jetzt auf der Messerspitze. Es geht jetzt doch um die Entscheidung und ich habe das Gefühl, als wenn das Messer abbricht. Der Krieg geht seinem Ende entgegen, aber ich gla...

A horrible sentence with which I'm struggling

The opening sentence and the closer I think I've got... but the bit in the middle is just 'orrible. :( Am Weg liegt ein Pferd verwundet, bäumt sich auf, jemand gibt ihm einen Gnadenschuß, es springt wieder hoch, ein anderer feuert vom nächsten Panzer, das Pferd kämpft immer noch um sein Leben, viele...

Re: Images of War

For the early campaigns, up to the end of 1941, there's a host of Nazi propaganda books, e.g. Der grosse deutsche Feldzug gegen Polen (which is A4 sized, 350 pages, loads of images). Cost about €20 Der Sieg im Osten (Poland again). Similar price. Der Sieg im Norden (Norway). Ditto. Der Grosse Befehl...

Re: Panzer Division Müncheberg

Many thanks for getting in touch Herr Kroemer. Very much still interested in your father's diary (I'm not sure as yet when I will get around to writing my long-planned Endkampf book). As long as I remember, I shall send an email come September! Thank you also for the tip on the Mummert book - one I ...

Re: Naval and Military Bookstores in Germany

Helmut Weitze in Hamburg is excellent and well worth a visit. Also Torsten Bernhardt in Johanniswall 3, near the Hbf, keeps a good second-hand collection of unit histories and military books. Otherwise, most of the military bookshops seem to be online with minimal shop presence. As for the mainstrea...

A spot of poetry

which I've had a crack at Landesschützen, Landsknechtleben Hei, wie ist das wunderfein! Frohe Lieder in der Kehle, Ist im Becher auch kein Wein. Wir sind stets auf unserm Posten, Ob im Norden oder Süd, Ob im Westen oder Osten, Überall ist unser Lied Landeschützen, Landsknechtleben, Hei, wie klingt d...

Re: Armored Bears

99 per cent certain it is given that the pagination looks right and the original was produced by the Kameradschaft. :[]
