Re: SS-Kriegsberichter Standarte Organization

I looked around, and this thread looks like a good spot for this post. I found this page in my miscellaneous microfilm file. Not entirely sure how it came to me, but thought you might find it interesting. The following information was gotten from Roll 106 of National Archives Microfilm Publication T...

Re: Facebook group for Wehrmacht related fiction - readers and writers

Hell, I do all sorts of proofreading! Maps, too! I'll join!

I am also working on a fictional work. It's in parallel with the divisional history I'm working on, so it's going VERY slowly.....

Re: Should be required reading for students of WW2 Germany

I would add one suggestion. A semester or three of German language? Would that I had done that a few decades ago.

Re: Meldestaffel (Messenger) vehicles ?

In truth, there were several makes, models, and types of all vehicles in the unit.
