Hi,

According to Trevor Dupuy's "Hitler's Last Gamble", DR lost 635 KIA; 1,936 WIA and 866 MIA for the period 21 Dec 44 to 16 Jan 45. These figures come from the divisions daily personnel records.

Hi,

The investigative team is moving on to Lee Harvey Oswald conspiracy.
Guess they ran out of leads looking for old 'dolf.

Tigre,

Perhaps shed is to hide welding activity going on after dark?

Re: Poll: Bunker or Argentina?

Watch what you are asking for. Season II "Hunting Hitler" premiers in less than a month on History channel.
Maybe we'll finally get the answer. They'll find him with the "Gold Train".

All,

Just purchased Doug Nash's "Victory Was Beyond Their Grasp" the 272 VGD's battles in the Hurtgen Forest. Very interesting, highly detailed book. Congratulations and thanks, Doug.

Re: Ruhr Pocket

Hello,

Breathing life into a long ago thread. Does anyone have any information on the combat strength of the divisions trapped in the Ruhr Pocket at the end of the war? Troop strength, armor strength, artillery?

Thanks in advance for any information.

Re: Share of ammunition types of the total capacity

Hi,

AFAIK, distribution would be 50/50 AP/HE on panzer. Panzerjagers and Jagpanzers may lean toward AP. However, availability of ammo types is the issue.
