Thanks for your repply! I began to tell me that the "Reichswehr" forum was dead... Somehow, someone told me that the Great General Staff was not dissolved until it was renammed in TA, Truppenamt, on octobre 1st, 1919. It seems that the sources I've read and spoke about the dissolution of The Great G...

Of course that is a conditional solution to see which tank is the best, but it's impossible, so we have two solutions: 1) find another way to chosse the best tank or 2) forget this topic and stop asking the question of the best tank... I would addthat, if Wittmann was so a great tankman, there are m...

Hey, FanofgermanmilitaryMight! I bet you're from Germany, isn't it? Anyway, you may be right. As you can see from my username, I'm a big fan of the leopard 2. And the best reason for that is that I've drived and commanded Leopard 2 A4 from the swiss army. Tony talked about the compared reliability o...

You're right, I had bad epressed myself, I did not want to say that the T-34 was a compromise. It was, the best tank at his time, and this, because he was in advance of his time. I just wanted to say that he had some problems, that he was not well-perfectionned as can be a Tiger II or Jagdtiger. Tha...

I would like to add something else on talking about the BEST tank... The efficiency of a tank has to be replaced in the general tactic of an armed force. I mean that it depends also on the use of the tank: for example, it's easy to see that the german blitzkrieg of the beginning of the war was essen...

interesting... but it seems you are not speaking about the same thing: the question was about the best tank, not about the one which had the most impact on the battles, or anything like that, so it's important to make a difference. Considering the best tank, you have to think as a "one-on-one" battl...

the end of the Great Generalstaff in 1919

hello I've read that general Groener has dissolved the great Generalstaff 19th january, 1919, and that he didi it spontaneously. I'm wandering why he did not wait for the order of the Allies to do it. Could he then know or suppose that the ALlies would dissolve it? If not, what was his intention in ...

Is the term "Reich" usurpated?

Good morning ladies and gentlemen I'm having some very interessant readings about the years 1919-1939 in Germany. And I've got this question which came into mind: after the second Reich, which really was a Reich, an empire with kingdoms of Prussia, Wurttemberg, Saxe and Bavaria... it seems that the ...

The Treaty of Versailles (part V, section I, tables I-III) talks about the composition of the divisions: headquarters, infantery headquarters, artillery haedquarters, 3 reiments of infantery (composition detailed even to batalions, even some comapnies), a TRENCH MORTAR COMPANY, a divisional squaron....

Hi I'm searching informations about the troops of the Reichswehr from 1921 to 1934... 've seen that the Diktat allowed the cavalery and infanery divisions some units... But I can't find if those units really existed... I mean... did the German army exactly structure its divisions as the Diktat autor...

SS and Waffen SS uniforms

Hi Question about SS and waffen-SS uniforms: it semms that SS had black uniforms at the beginning. I thought only waffen.SS did receive the feldgrau uniform... Is it right? When was the date of the changing? Another question about Heer uniforms: who could have a white uniform (as seen on Manstein) a...

Maps of Wehrkreise

Hi everybody

I'm looking for a map featuring the Wehrkreise since 1921... and others ones each time a modification in the structure of the Wehrkreise has appeared.
I've never seen something like that, but hope it's existing.
Thanks
