Luftwaffengefechtsverband Siegel

Looking for any kind info on this unit - Luftwaffengefechtsverband Siegel. The only thing I have on it is that it was apparently subordinated to II.SS-Pz.Korps during the anti-partisan operations in NE Italy and Slovenia in fall 1943.

Thanks

Schar

I'm wondering is there an appropriate term for Schar (military formation) in English language?

These were indeed SS-FJs, part of Skorzeny's force defending the bridgehead Schwedt on the Oder in Jan/Feb 1945. Do a forum search on Schwedt and I'm sure you'll get more answers.

Well dear Jan, I'd concur with your assessment on Stoves:
The Stoves is still one of the best Heer Unit histories I ever read ( but it was not cheap , anyway)
But having read both I would say K... outdid him in the Kalinin raid :(, just my 3 cents :oops: .

Re: Counting the dead

Hi Pirx, Thanks for your post. 2. Poland before 1939 exist only 20 years. There was no common archives for whole Poland before that. Documents were written in german and russian. In 1918 on Polish territory were 4 currencies, 3 laws, 2 calendars and so on. Poland was like new born child , killed jus...

Thanks for the info on rationing system but like I said I still don't see this as any greater obstacles as the one experienced by Italian and Slovene researchers (i.e. partisan and anti-partisan terror, foibe, German deportations of roughly 80,000 Slovenes, post-war immigration of considerable numbe...

Not just bombing, Marko - think of Western Europe and refugees, tens of thousands left the places where there were records of them, and if they died on the road, none recorded it. I understand your point, but then again this is comparatively minor obstacle (in comparison with guerrilla warfare in I...

Well, this will be a positive change. So hopefully "a Feldgrau thread" will actually produce a link.

Each of you are equally and totally HOPELESS at times in constructing arguments in support of them - but Kevin has one significant advantage over you. When he's wrong he stamps his feet and says "Ok, Ok,..." and plys the icons....but he accepts a thing when its proven - whether with bad grace or no...

Don't quite understand your point - you mean the Yugoslav postwar manipulation of WWII casualties?

Well obviously Germany would have some difficulties establishing such a list (though if you consider all the work done by Volksbund and other organizations this doesn't seem completely impossible) but imagine such lists for Poland, Italy or France maybe Bosnia and Herzegovina :shock: .
