Re: Why don't we ever hear the word "Heer" in documentaries?...

FWIW I think it is mostly just ignorance. On the other hand, very often other branches (Luftwaffe) are a part of an operation, if only a small part, so Wehrmacht is actually correct.

Hello Raúl,

You are quite welcome, and thank you! I would have to post that much every day for years, to come anywhere close to the amount of material that you have posted to the forums over the years. I'm glad when I can make a small contribution.

Best Regards............. Jerry

Re: Baksan-Nalchik-Alagir-Ordzhonikidze campaign, Oct-Nov 1942

Hello Raúl, The above quoted volume, The Caucasus and the oil , by Tieke, remains the only source that I have on this action. I will go back and search for any info that might bear on the III Pz.K.'s actions if that will be of benefit to you. Are there specific questions that you need answered? Jerry

Re: 14 Panzer Division, November 1944

Prit,

I have Unrein returning on Nov 25 as per DDD #3.

FWIW, same source has Unrein's first replacement as Werner Mummert 1.9.44 - 4.9.44, then Munzel 5.9.44 - 24.11.44.
