Re: Paulus' family after his surrender?

Interesting Remy -- I had heard that a descendant of FM Paulus lived in my area and was a practicing dentist. I am in the States, in PA. I did not ever follow-up on this but it certainly stands out in my memory. I have to try and remember who it was that told me this information.

Vorhandwerker ?

Hello !
I rec'd a letter from the wife of a former panzer soldier. She told me her husband was an "Obergefreiter und Vorhandwerker".
Can anyone help clarify what this position might have been ? He served in the Stabskompanie / 505.

Thanks !

I have helped a few Tiger veterans w...

Re: Feldgrau Author - Dale R. Ritter

Hello --
This one is about 62,000 words -- more text than the previous (Kronke) volume - less photos. I will post more when I have the proofs - then I will have a page count for you.
Thanks for asking --

Thanks !!
