Re: So....My Tank Corps in Prussia...

Hi to all.
I have not been here for quite a long time (I'm sorry...), and, as I can see, I've got quite much to read about the Tank Corps :]

Re: Any German Ship in History!

Refreshing the discussion: I'd choose battlecruiser(battleship) Scharnhorst, one of the Terrible Twins! Not so many capships even turned their guns against enemy aircraft carriers, and Scharnhorst even send one to the bottom of the sea.

Ewart Brookes - "Proud Waters"

Just imagine yourself over 10,000 (not all would have survived till "liberation") Polish trained officers to cdeal with when the started creating Polish Army in Russia...

Hi to all. Katyń is a long topic, so I'll make myself briefly: I doubt that Gestapo could have "made" NKVD killed Polish POWs. Beria signed the order and it was Stalin's choice to get rid of Polish officers, raised in anti-communist spirit. They were a potential threat to him, so eliminating them wa...

So if they volunteered to SS, then they might have been assigned to
"News" (Kriegsberichter) unit SS-Standarte 'Kurt Eggers'?
