Hello Gareth

According to your lists GenLt Bamler led the 12. Inf-Div from 4/6/44 to 27/6/44 (I believe he surrendered the division to the Soviets)& 121. Inf-Div from 1/6/44 to 27/6/44. Is this correct ? If so, what were the circumstances ?

Thanks
Doug

The reason behind this is that I made a typing error, I'm afraid. as we all know he could not possible have commanded the 121st because he was fighting the Russians at Minsk, which he was eventually captured.
Sorry,

Hi Gareth

I'm sorry if you got the impression that I was picking holes ! I'm quite a novice in this subject so I tend to accept information at face value. That was why I asked about the circumstances.
Anyway, if he wasn't in charge of 121st during that time period who was ?

Thanks
Doug

General der Infanterie Hellmuth Priess, in all probability. The command of these divisions during this chaotic period was cloudy to say the least.Before him was Generalmajor Ernst Pauer von Arlau.

By the way, I did not take your question as picky, don't worry, chin up boss!
