Luftflotte 2 November '41

In late November '41 Luftflotte 2 was transferred from Army Group Center in Russia to Italy. I presume that there were still air units supporting Army Group Center. So, my question is: What Luftwaffe units remained with Army Group Center in December 1941?
Thanks ....Jerry

Re: GM Carl Andre' DK Gold

Thanks for the reply Prosper. Colonel Andre' was in command of a captured Soviet armored train that participated in the capture of Kursk in November '41. I am trying to find out if that operation is why he received the DKiG. Any Idea where I can find that info? Jerry

Hst. Graetz was commander throughout. Was dissolved in May 1944. Not much!

Re: 6th Panzer Grenadier Regiment

The 7th Panzer Division, with PzGr Regiments 6 & 7 was on the Eastern Front during the time of Market Garden. The 9th SS Panzer Division was involved in Market Garden, however its SSPgR's were 19th & 20th.

I have had several magazine articles published about the Eastern Front of WWII. Does that count?

Re: Feldgrau's Future

Why? You certainly have the right to resign but what's the difference whether Pipes participates or not?

Re: 2. Panzerarmee

I think it was simply a matter that the eastern front was shrinking, meaning that one Army HQ was not needed. So Pz.AOK 2 was shipped to the Balkans for anti partisan duty under command of Lother Rendulic (hardly a panzer commander). They took no panzer troops with them, so the move didn't effect A/...

Re: Hube's Pocket, the fighting pocket

Don't know of a book about it but there was a pretty good article about it called "Hube's Great Escape", in last May's (2014) edition of World at War magazine.

Re: May the shadow protect us with his great hart.

Yes indeed it is a sad day. John was a friend and contributor for a long time. I'm only sorry that he and I lost contact over the last couple of years.

Shadow, you will be missed by all who knew you and all who benefited from your insight.

Rest in Peace my friend.
