No human on earth has a list of all battles of all hundreds of german divisions that existed. Beside that what can be considered as battle etc....#of Battles (Won)
Same as above# of Battles (Lost)
All german soldiers, NCO´s and officer learned from the same "Ausbildungsvorschriften" so they used all the same tactics.General Tactics
Beside that no such list exists for all divisions for the entire war these numbers would be not more than very, very rough estimates of course. You are really a history teacher??# of Enemy (Killed)
I don´t understand what the number of wounded has to do with the quality of a divisional size formation??# of Men (Killed, Wounded)
What are combat skills in connection to divisional size formations??Combat Skills & Combat Expierences
When you asked 'Army' wasn't it obvious you refered to the Wermacht, did you? And next you enumerate with one breath: infrantry, panzer, SS (Waffen-SS presumably)?HunterSeeker wrote:(Army Division can include Infantry , Panzer and S.S .....etc)
Most experience is simply not true. The early war Panzerdivisionen (if we stick to Pz.Div.) had several years more experience and had more battles fought.Witzland wrote:beacuse they were put into every major battle and they had most experience and battel record + they had the highest ammount of medals awarded :P The russians were so affired of them that the propaganda told the soldiers that those divisons were completly destroyed...
Hm, so the SS-Verfügungstruppe, SS-LAH and SS-Totenkopf haven´t fought since the early war years?Christoph Awender wrote: Most experience is simply not true. The early war Panzerdivisionen (if we stick to Pz.Div.) had several years more experience and had more battles fought.
And the divisions you speak of were nearly destroyed several times. Just an example on 26.Nov.43 the division had 9 Pz.IV's, 2 Tigers, 7 Panthers and 2 command tanks fit for combat before it was transferred to France for refreshment. These are 20 tanks!
Well I don´t know if you really mean what you wrote just here or if you want to fool me. But I don´t want to correct you. It was just a question. You may also be right. The original members of those SS units may have well been almost depleted when the DIVISIONs came onto the stage of world history.Christoph Awender wrote:I am very sorry Gebirgsjäger my mistake you are correct.Hm, so the SS-Verfügungstruppe, SS-LAH and SS-Totenkopf haven´t fought since the early war years?
And tanks do say absolutely nothing about experience - NOTHING!
