Hello!

I am looking for memories of soldiers from Operation Winterübung (occupation of the Rhineland). I am interested in Karlsruhe and Rastatt.

greetings

Hans 1906, thank you for the materials.
I know that A./IR 13 entered Karlsruhe, and IR 87 entered Rastatt (March 8). III./AR 5 and II./AR5 arrived on trains. Both artillery battalions were ordered to prepare for the trip before March 6.
I wonder when the order was given to the infantry battalions?
Hitler made his decision on February 12, 1936. The Generaloberst Ludwik Beck claimed that 3 days would be enough to transfer a few battalions over the border of the Rhineland.
