Mitte: 28 Divisions destroyed during Operation Bagration. OB West: 18 Divisions destroyed by the time of the surrender at F...

Re: LXXXVIII corps units, Holland 1944

Maddog, There could be two very valid reasons for this 1) the 19. Panzer-Division was in a (very) bad shape and needed the rest 2) the situation on the eastern front was far worse because of the opening of Bagration. Piet Greetings “MadDog” !! :D As indicated by the data below it’s obvious that Ger...

We're short on uniforms and equipment, here in Canada. for the troops in Afghanistan, so the Royal Canadian Artillery (here at home) have to use stuff we captured in 19444-...

Re: 148. Grenzschutz Regiment in 1939.

Also note that Gen.d.Inf. z.V. Max von Schenckendorf, commanded 10 Grenzschutzabschnitts-Kdo.-13 (of which 148 Grenz-Rgt was a part) until 25 Oct. 1939. On that date (one day before it was officially made part of the German Reich) he was made Kommandant of Posen/Poznan, as noted by my friend Doktor ...

By 10 Sept. 1939, because of the surprising (even to the Germans) speed of the "Blitzkrieg", less effective combat units wer...

Greetings L.Gladysiak !! :D The only mention I can find for 148. Grenzschutz Regiment is on 01 Sept. 1939, when it was stationed on the Western Front. Unfortunately I can find no mention of it after this point. EIGHTH ARMY: [AOK 8]: AOK Reserves: I./Flak-Regt.-33 (gem.) I./Flak-Regt.-52 (gem.) PzJag...
