Would Peter Taghon be a member?

His Mei 1940. De Achttiendaagse Veldtocht in België (Tielt 1989, 2000) is a fine work on the Blitzkrieg in Belgium, revealing over 500 pictures, partly from the originally 3.500.000 negatives counting archive of the Propaganda Kompanien (PK). The pictures are commented carefully, incl. names of bataljons, units, soldiers, insignia, location, etc. The whole set in its historical context.

Hello,

I am currently working on two books. One is on the "History of the SS-Dienstalterliste" and the other is "Guards of the Fuhrer: The RSD and SS-Begleitkommando". I hope to have them both published at the beginning of 2010 as I also have a rather large SS related book project on the side.

Best Regards,

James

The Tiger Project - Release date May 2008

Post by Dsotm » 20 Jan 2008 21:33

The Research Squad are pleased to announce the upcoming release of the Tiger Project, a complete photostudy of Tiger Fahrgestell No. 250031, currently located at The Wheatcroft Collection.

The Research Squad has been given special permission by the collection to fully document this important vehicle. This therefore presents a unique opportunity to create a full photographic record before, during and after the restoration process. To this end the book will document the vehicle in its current state. This will include a full exterior walk-around, a complete documentation of the interior and also a detailed study of the engine compartment.
The book will comprise +/- 160 pages and contain 450+ images.

All accessible areas of the vehicle are examined including:
Full exterior
Turret and Fighting Compartment
Engine Compartment

In addition there will be:
A history of the vehicle from capture to present date
A Pantone examination of the paint layer history
30+ technical drawings of specific items of interest
Original Internal images of the transmission and gearbox
A preview of a previously unseen original intact turret bin (not from this vehicle)
We will also be releasing a multimedia CD to complement the book. This will contain QuickTime VR Panoramas of the turret, drivers, radio operators and engine compartments.
Below are some examples from the book. (Final layout and content may vary)

Born on 23rd June 1901 in Berlin-Charlottenburg Oskar Dinort entered military service in February 1919, as an officer cadet, with an Assault Instruction Regiment, attached to the Guards Rifle Division. He then spent the next few years serving with the 51st Rifle Regiment and the 2nd Infantry Regiment, finally serving the next eighteen months attached to an Infantry School in Munich. He returned to the 2nd Infantry Regiment in October 1922 and in February 1923 was commissioned as a Leutnant, and immediately trained as a pilot.

In February 1928 he was promoted to Oberleutnant and in May he took part in secret flying training in Lipezk and when he returned he took part in aerobatics training in Würzburg. The following year he established the world endurance record for gliders and in 1931 he won the National Aeroplane Competition, and three years later he was promoted to Hauptmann. In May 1934 he transferred to the Luftwaffe, where he was assigned as Chief of Operations to the 1st Group of Fighter Wing “Richthofen” and in March 1935 was transferred as Chief of Operations on the staff of the Inspector of Fighter and Ground Attack Pilots within the Air Ministry.

Dinort went onto serve in another two fighter squadrons and was promoted to Major in March 1937 before transferring to dive bombers in September when he assumed command of the 1st Group of 165th Stuka Wing. The same year he established a new world endurance record for gliders and became a minor celebrity. Prior to the outbreak of war he was assigned as commander of the 163rd Stuka Wing “Immelmann” and from May 1939 until the outbreak of war he commanded the Airbase at Cottbus. In October 1939 he was appointed Wing Commander of the 2nd Stuka Wing “Immelmann” which had been formed in Cologne. He remained as commander until October 1941 seeing action on virtually every front which included France, Romania, Poland, Greece and finally Russia.

He won the Knight’s Cross on 20th June 1940, in recognition of his forty missions when attacking targets from 2nd to 6th June 1939 in Piotrkow and from 17th September 1939 for attacks against Warsaw. He helped with the destruction of the remaining 16 Polish divisions in the forest of Radom. It was also for the part he played during the campaign in the west in 1940 against such targets as Fort Eben Emael, the Fort of Barchon, de Pontisee, and attacks on Arras, Boulogne, Calais and Dunkirk. He was also awarded the Oakleaves on 14th July 1941 for his success against English ports and shipping in the Channel, where his command sank 87,400 tons of shipping and damaged 68,100 tons of British ships from Greece. During the fighting against the British in Crete his command sunk six destroyers and damaged 66,000 tons of shipping.

In September 1941 Dinort was promoted to Oberst and in October he was transferred to the Air Ministry as Chief of Staff of the General Air Equipment Branch, and he remained here until February 1942 when he became an advisor on bombing to Generalfeldmarschall Milch. In September 1943 he was given another combat command when he was named commander of the Flieger-Zielgeschwader, a command that controlled and guided aircraft target units. It was formed in Weidenlupnitz, near Hörselberg, Germany, and he remained in this command until September 1944 when he was named Commander of the 3rd Flying School Division, a position he held until the end of the war.

Dinort was captured by Allied forces on 23rd June 1945 and interned, he was released two years later in June 1947 and returned home. He died in Köln-Riehl on 27th May 1965.

Hello folks,

after four years of making and four years of waiting, I'm glad to anounce that my first book - "Fire Brigades" - is already a fact.

Image

Fire Brigades

The Panzer Divisions, 1943-1945

Hard cover, trade format (6”x9”), English text, 952 pages, 300+ detailed tables, exhaustive glossary and bibliography.

Fire Brigades, The Panzer Divisions 1943-1945 relates the full story of the Panzer Divisions from the turn of the tide against the Germans in 1943 to the bitter end in 1945. The author has compiled an unprecedented amount of detail on the 45 divisions designated or equipped as Panzer. All the active divisions from mid-1943 onwards, from the well known to the obscure, are comprehensively described—Army, SS and Luftwaffe. The topics covered: Combat history; organization of the various formations and units within the divisions;, monthly deliveries of armor; monthly condition reports; and attachments to higher formations. There is also a comprehensive, in-depth analysis of the development of the Panzer divisions and how their structure and role changed as the war situation deteriorated. The figures quoted are not those for a theoretical order of battle; these are the actual figures of troop and vehicle strengths, casualties, replacements, etc. This book is the definitive work on the subject and is an absolutely indispensible reference for the armored warfare enthusiast, military historian, wargamer and World War 2 researcher.

Table of Contents (numbers in parentheses indicate total number of pages devoted to the formation):

Army and Luftwaffe: 1PD (23), 2PD (19), 3PD (22), 4PD (20), 5PD (20), 6PD (24), 7PD (26), 8PD (26), 9PD (23), 11PD (21), 12PD (22), 13PD (28 ), 14PD (21), 16PD (25), 17PD (25), 18PD (7), 19PD (19), 20PD (20), 21PD (19), 23PD (23), 24PD (20), 25PD (25), 26PD (18 ), 116PD (13), 232PD (3), Brandenburg (13), Clausewitz (6), FBD (9), FGD (9), FHH (10), GD (28 ), HG (32), Holstein (6), Jüterbog (7), Müncheberg (6), Norwegen (7), Panzer-Lehr (19), Schlesien (7).
