Re: Nachschub versus Versorgung units

Zug = (singular) platoon Züge = (plural) platoons [note the umlaut] Both the singular and plural can be abbreviated as Zg. Note that the word Zug can also mean a whole lot of other things, like a (railroad) train, or (wind) draft, draw (like in pull), traction (like towing), etc. Consult a German-E...

Re: Nachschub versus Versorgung units

Sorry, I don't exactly understand the question.
There were independent platoons, as well as platoons belonging to companies and larger units.
You say you know the difference between company and platoon. So where's the problem?

German WWII Organizational Series

My German WWII Organizational Series is now available for downloading. After the troubles I have had the latest publishers, I have dropped the idea of doing any further books. Note, these are the versions that I submitted to the publishers at the corresponding time. Results of further, later researc...

The Royal Hungarian Army 1920 – 1945

The Royal Hungarian Army 1920 – 1945 Initially thought to be the first of several volumes, I have since dropped the idea of publishing any further books. Instead, the book is being converted to HTML. First chapters have been uploaded. The (new) web pages include additions, changes, amendments, etc....

Re: Nachschub versus Versorgung units

Nachschub = Supply

Versorgung = Service — includes supply, medical, veterinary, commissary, military police, post, etc. (all non-combat) units. Note, although some armies consider engineer and signal troops to be service units, the German Army considered them as combat units.

Re: Bridge Columns in the Bulge campaign

The bridge column did not itself assemble the bridge, but was merely a maintenance, transportation, and advisory unit. Combat engineers from divisions or GHQ Troops, or attached construction troops — or even normal infantry — actually assembled these combat bridges.

Re: Kradführer issued or carrying pistol as sidearm?

Normally, the Kradführer i.e. the Führer der Krafradmeldestaffel (the sergeant who commanded the motorcycle messenger detachment), was authorized an SMG ( Maschinenpistole ); the Kradfahrer (motorcyclist) was authorized a rifle; the Kradfahrer als Melder (motorcycle messenger) was authorized a rifle.

Re: TOE of Schützenkompanie in Panzerdivision June 1941

If I may get preachy for a minute: The link you refer to shows an organizational diagram, not a TOE. The Germans did not have combined T/O&E such as the late US Army lists, but each unit one or more tables of organization (KStN) and tables of equipment (KAN). The KStN ( Kreigsstärkenachweisung ) [Ta...

Re: Update of Server / Forum Software

Well, nothing has changed. I forced a reload (Ctrl + F5): not change.

I logged in via a different browser (Chrome): still do not see the "formatting" buttons.

And the "Options" at the bottom doesn't work either.

Re: Update of Server / Forum Software

Hi Richard,
Like the clean look. And I appreciate the little avatar next to my name at the top when logged in. Good work.

Leo

Am I missing something? The "Post a Reply" box is missing all the bells and whistles (links–quotes-etc.)? The "Options" tab below does nothing.
