Re: New book on the DAK

Thanks Kevin. You are true, the 15. Panzer-division is not "well-covered" by books, especially comparing with 21. Panzer-division. I used to work also on the 15. Kradschutzen-Btl but let this project for others... I am impatient to read your work and will give you my comments and opinions on it but ...

Re: "The Forgotten Soldier" by Guy Sajer

Hi, My post was just a way to give you the main french way of thinking about this famous and impressive book, but far from real facts. Even his enlistement into Panzer-grenadier regiment GD is sometimes contested, as he was french, not german. Some people had made researches on GD's rolls and find n...

Re: "The Forgotten Soldier" by Guy Sajer

You must know that in France, Guy Sajer's book is taken not to a real historical book but more to a vivid and unexact testimony, with magnifical description. Guy Sajer's enlistment is true (the problem is that there is no trace of him in the Grossdeutschland fightings units), but It is not sure that...

Re: DAK kampfstaffel movements during gazala battle

First, it appears from some differents sources and documents that there is on fact two Kampfstaffeln : - Armeekampfstaffel (named also Kampfgruppe Khiel) ; - Korpskampsftaffel. Before the end of last El Alamein's (or perhaps before) these two "kasta" were merged in one unit, sacrified during the lat...
