I have a question, does anyone know OOB and data on the German army on 1 or 3 September 1939?

There is no. On the forum forum, there are German divisions but by month and for example in September the division at the end of the month is counted, i.e. useless for me.

Hello.
This is helpful, but how do you count the division of the army group C?
squares are divisions, so
Von Leeba Group C has the 22nd division?

Not quite sure about number of divisions. Just tried to help. I touched the “C” and saw 3 boxes w/x and numbers. Guess you mean the various boxes being divisions. I looked through the symbols and noticed von Leebs 1st., 5th. and 7th. (box/cross) have “XXXX” above making them the 1.,5., 7. Armee... I have no idea how many divisions in an army and how many of these are infantry (box/cross symbol).
