Army group C order of battle December 1944

Post by JeffF » Sun Jan 08, 2017 10:27 pm

Hello, years ago someone from this forum was kind enough to send me the complete German Army order of battle for late 1944 however for the Italian theater the army and corps designations to which the divisions were assigned was cut off from the photocopy. Could anyone please provide the order of battle from army group to army to corps from December 1944 (the time just prior to the Ardennes Offensive in NW Europe)?
Thanks!

Hello Jeff: I can give you Stand 26.11.1944 and/or 31.12.1944. Do you have a preference or do you want both?? I do not have time now, but I will get them to you soon. Best wishes.

John could you tell me what "Teile" (e.g. Teile 148) means? And I think "ohne 1 Rgt" means that one of the specified division's subordinate regiments is detached, is that right? Or is there another meaning? Thanks!

"Teile" means "part of", so Teile 148 means part of the 148th Div. was present. You are correct about "ohne". Best wishes.
