Site with Foreign Military Studies 1945-54

Postby paspartoo on 23 Nov 2011 12:58

I came across this site called Fold3 : http://www.fold3.com/browsemore/hQ7exmc5x_251/
It has the Foreign military Studies :'' The manuscripts within this title provide a unique insight into the tactics, strategy, and policy of the German military during World War II through reports, interviews, and questionnaires'' etc
A simple economist with an unhealthy interest in military and intelligence history.....

You can pay a fee to be able to access all the FMS documents at fold3. www.sturmpanzer.com has many of these available for download in edited form.

I signed up for a free 7 day trial with this site, but it really wasn't what I was looking for and a week was fine for me. Now, they tell me they have billed me for a year (at $79.95) without even asking me if I wanted this. I think they should send you an email after the free trial ends, then offer you the option of subscribing for more. This didn't happen. And I'll have to get this reversed.

Has anyone else had a similar experience with them? I think this really defeats the purpose of a free trial: if you don't like it, you don't get it. Unless they sign you up without even asking you, that is....

I could not find p-114b and p-114c: nor in fold3, neither sturmpanzer.

Anyone could tell me how to find these two essays?

Thanks

The fold3.com site contains about 85% of all the FMS docs written. THe other 15% must be obtained from NARA or BAMA by purchase or going there and copying them.

From the Supplement to Guide Foreign Military Studies 1945-1954:

P-114b German Army Group Operations on the Eastern Front, 1941 - 45* Central Area. By General der Infanterie
Rudolf Hofmann; 1O vols; 1958. (Not translated)

P-114c German Army Group Operations on the Eastern Front, 1941 - 45, Southern Area. By General der Artillerie
F.W. Hauck; 8 vols; to be completed by December 1959- (Will not be translated)

Both of these should be of file as as paper copies at NARA. And look, one is 10 volumes and the other is 8!

Regards,
Marc

The studies P-114b and P114c should be very good, even the authors of the "Germany in the Second World War" official history volumes make extensive use of them, and a person I am aquaintaed to sent me an Excel file full of interesting numerical strength and loss data he had extracted from one or two of the volumes at BA-MA, much of the data I had never seen in any book before.

I have been looking for them for some time, unfortunately it seems they are available only at archives like NARA and BA-MA.

I visit NARA frequently and scan up documents. But I cannot imagine scanning 8 or 10 volume documents. It would be a major effort.
