Infantry Regiment Grossdeutschland

Can someone please tell me something about this unit:

2. Sch. Kp. mot. I.R. G.D.

This is the info on a dogtag -- I can guess that it is the 2nd Kompanie (Sch. ?) motorized, of Infantry Regiment Grossdeutschland.
Any info about the specific unit would be great.

thanks -
Dale

Re: Unteroffizier Gross -- German Cross in Gold

Thanks Dok - I did find that one as well... I have a diary from a 2./503 guy who mentions that his pz. kommander rec'd the GC in Gold...but I can't find anything to support the claim.

Re: Feldgrau Author - Dale R. Ritter

Thank you Nord ! As soon as I know anything I will post it... I'm waiting on hearing back from one potential publisher...and considering the possibility of an e-book. I'd prefer having a book printed that I can hold in my hands but the e-book option is very interesting. I'm wondering if anyone out t...

Re: Rudel - cause of death?

I know his leg was not the cause...and I'm not sure about any other details...but I definately remember he had a stroke. I haven't looked elsewhere online but it must be availble to find.

Re: Rudel - cause of death?

From what I remember -- he had lost a leg in the war -- but once he had the time to stop flying and allow his leg to properly heal I think he was rather physically fit. Sometime after the war he had a stroke but I don't remember how close that was to the end.

Re: Feldgrau Author - Dale R. Ritter

Hello Jan-Hendrik ! Yes - the Polzin manuscript is currently with a publisher - I am waiting to hear back from them. Unfortunately Horst passed away not too long ago. So both he and Dr. Polzin died within the past year or so. I have been in contact with another interesting Tiger veteran - a former O...

Re: Who Needs a Publisher?

Is it possible to have a book published the traditional way as well doing an ebook available online ?
I know that as an avid reader I still prefer to have the book in my hands and on my shelf - but as someone who also would like to sell more copies of a book, the ebook option is very enticing...

My main area of interest has been autographs and books - I went from collecting signed photos (mostly post-war) of Knights Cross winners (all branches of service) to collecting specifically autographs from Tiger veterans. I probably have over 200 different Tiger veteran autographs - many...
