Panzerfaust

Good post, K98_man!
The Panzerfaust could penetrate up to 20 cm (8 inches) of armor. It easily dstroyed T34s and Stalin IIs.

To all of you above, who wished me a 'Happy Birthday', I send my sincerest gratitude. Like they say: 'Time flies when you are having fun'.

Hinein?

Feldarzt,
could you quote a few words before and after the questionable "In Ein"?
It might help deciphering that expression.

Hinein

There are various meanings to the word 'hinein':
hineinbegeben: go inside, or enter somewhere; hineinbitten: (somebody) - to ask or invite in; hineinblicken: to look in; in die Nacht hinein: far into the night. Literal translation would be 'into'.
I hope this will help.

der, die,das

Hello y'all, I am not a linguist; however, there is a simple rule that the gender (der, die, das) is always the one of the last noun of a compound noun. i.e.: Wehrmacht - Macht is fem. therefore die Krankenhaus - das (Haus) Kirchturm - der (Turm) Hitlerjugend - die (Jugend). If a simple or compound ...

Geschütz

Hi,
'Geschütz' literally means 'gun' (like an artillery gun).
The numeral between the two words is 1 (one) - what it means, I cannot guess.
Rast does mean 'a break' or 'resting period'.
Greetings,
Rudi S.

Question about Panzer nomenclature

According to the book "World War II Tanks", by Eric Grove: ...In 1942, Henschel and Porsche demonstrated their prototypes. The Henschel VK 4501 design was the superior one and ir was accepted into service as the PzKpfw VI Tiger Ausf H (SdKfz 181) . The tank was renamed Ausf E in 1944. ...It was hope...

Fähnrich

Those of you who said "Fähnrich" (with the Umlaut) are corrcet. I believe that the translation would be 'officer candidate'.
A "Fähnrich zur See" is an ensign.
It is possible that now the Umlaute are written: ae, oe, ue, aeu (äu), etc;

Print or CD

Hello Haen,
I agree with the statements of the above 2 posters. I'd also would prefer your story in print rather than on a CD.
Nichts für ungut.
Tschüss,

JOSHA

I am sure that quite many of this forum's participants remember 'JOSHA'; who, for some reason left this forum. I have found his war time biography on this website:
http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Cavern/ ... ticles.htm

Very interesting reading!
