The dates are an approximate time frame for when the number was first used, not start & end dates.

Re: Looking for good books after Stalingrad

Stalingrad - The Death Of The German Sixth Army On The Volga by French Maclean (2 Volumes) - gives a day by day account of the battle. Good for an overview but not in-depth.

Re: Rammed!

Thank you for that little bit of information on U-18. I have a citation set belonging to a crewman who served with U-Flottille Lohs pre-war and on U-18 at the start of the war.

Re: Looking for good books after Stalingrad

Stalingrad: How the Red Army Triumphed by Michael K Jones is a good book to read. Plus I would second the recommendation for the Leaping Horseman books - probably the best books on the subject matter.

Re: B-Section operated in Gibraltar What was it ?

It is the B-Dienst (Beobachtungsdienst) - the Naval code breaking organisation. If you do a Google search for B-Dienst there is a fair bit of information available.

Re: 73.Infanterie-Division

I believe the last bit just means that he joined Feldersatz-Btl 73 which would of been a field training unit preparing soldiers who were due to go into the front line.
