My father's war years

Post by alex1004 » Sat Mar 12, 2016 1:12 am

I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. My father was in the Wehrmacht and I have received a few details of the units/divisions he served with from the Deutsche Dienstelle. However I would like to find out exactly what those units did - where they fought, etc. Can anyone assist me with this? Many apologies for the long post!
The information on his units is:

Oct 1940 3 Batterie Sturmgeschutz Ersatz Abteilung 200

Alex: A great place to start is with Lexicon der Wehrmacht: You should be able to determine the higher formations your father's Abteilungs belonged to and their approximate locations at various times. If you hit a road-block, just ask for help!! Best wishes.
