Re: Barbarossa Order of Battle

Greetings "yangtze" !! :D I got hold of a copy of Glantz's Slaughterhouse, hoping this would be a definitive, comprehensive OOB of the entire Eastern Front, 41-45.

Re: Feldgrau's Future

Greetings, Forum Kameraden! I really hate to do this, but it needs to be done if we are going to keep Feldrau as we know it.

Re: Korps Feldt info ?

Greetings "Scott" !! :D You should realize that, during WWII, the Germans used many definitions (Militarily) for such simple things as the letter " M " and " O ". You have chosen to use the most common definition of the "M" as to relate to the word: " motorisiert'. I would point out to you that othe...
