Re: German Army 1st september 1939

Hi domen,

Well,thx for the info, i've got the Kranz book, but i didn't add the info mainly because this topic isn;t about german losses, but more about the stellenbesetzung of the german army at 1 september 1939. ;)

You might want to start another topic about that.
