How did it compare?

Chapter VII of my "interview" on http://www.feldgrau.com/interview6.html describes some of my experiences in the US Army from 1948 to 1952. The 4-year hitch in the US Army gave me the chance to make something out of myself for which I am still greatful. Rudi Salvermoser (or: S-Alphabet - that's what...

11/11

A thought for Veterans Day: It is the VETERAN , not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion. It is the VETERAN , not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press. It is the VETERAN , not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the VETERAN , not the campus organizer, wh...

G'day Herr Panzergrenadier,
thanks for pointing out my omission. I must have written it in one of my 'senior' moments.

Drei Jahre...

Hallo Halder, for me, this book was very interesting to read; especially because I was a member of the FBB (Fuehrer-Begleit-Bn.) whose job it was to guard in the Wolfsschanze in Rastenburg in Sperrkreis II (security area II). Alfons Schulz, for 3 years, worked amidst the "inner circle" of the HQ. To...

Dauergebet

Panzer- & Stug uniforms

In my unit, 5.Pz.Kp./FBB/GD, we wore the same uniform for both. I was a gunner in both of them, whether assigned to the Mk IV or Stug III, (at different times, of course). I don't know about other units.
Regards,

Krieg?

Hello Halder, I've spent the past 15 years trying to understand why a cultured nation has been at the heart of two world wars and committed heinous, unforgiveable crimes in the process. May I add my 5 cents worth of knowledge: We, the common citizens of WWII Germany, had no idea about what's going o...
