Oh yes Rudi, im 100% sure i'm only 10.
My mum when i was younger used to call my "zand" and i can't see why!
And the reason she gave me the name "Alexander" was because she said it was a "Powerful" name like Alexander the Great

Ahah, so there was a lot of switching around, swapping units, reserves and re-named units involved in the re-naming? Because if i'm correct didn't the 16.Panzer-Grenadier have the 116.Panzer Battalion. Did this change into a regiment when changed to a Panzer Division? But with the panzers, i can't s...

Panzer Division # System

How come, with the German Panzers the divisions on feldgrau are listed like this :
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,116,232,233?
How come it wasnt like this ".......27,28,29,30 Panzer" Anyway, i think you missed the Panzer Lehr (130th Panzer Division) out.

Were the 1.SS on the 1st Ukrainian Front? And were their units in the relief attack Replaceable or Irreplaceable? But, with Kampfgruppen, what is the Size of a Kampfgruppe? Regiment, Company, Squadron, battalion, Brigade :?:

the 3.Panzer Grenadier Division arrived on December 19th, 1944 (PM) near Euskirchen (North), that is all the data i have, and from a guess, i suppose they help support the Ardennes Offensive by attacking Elsenborn/Monschau, or maybe going round to Malmedy, or Diekirch, possible to Trois Ponts or Sta...

I'm suprised they didn't have much effect since it was the first SS Panzer Division, but you said only a few Panzer-Grenadiers made it to Lissyanka, what happened to the Panzer Regiment, and Recon Battalion, slaughtered, spread out, thrown back, isolated?

I think the Reasons Hitler/Germany lost the war was this : 1. This one was NOT his fault but he had to launch Op.Marita to help the italians and that costed i think 5 Crucial campaigning weeks :( 2. He was fighting too many enemies (Hitler) :D 3. If he had more infantry/tank etc. units in Barbarossa...
