employment of the 251,250 SPW's in normandy

Units like Panzer Lehr and 21st panzer division were equipped with SPW's ( sdkfz 251, 250 or somua half traks) in both infantry regiments, and the rest of the armoured panzer divisions also had at least a kompanie o battalion equipped. So probably the SPW's were the most numerous armoured vehicle in...
