Registers of Waffen-SS Officers from KTBs

Post by John P. Moore » 23 Sep 2006 03:40

This begins a new series of Waffen-SS officer registers obtained from Kriegstagbuchs (KTB)/war diaries. My main sources for these documents were the NARA microfilm in Washington, D.C. or the Military Archive in Prague where I obtained copies of the original documents. Hopefully, other members will be able to contribute documents obtained from other archives or veterans.

I will begin with a register of officers found in the KTB of SS-Regiment “Deutschland” of the “Das Reich” Division covering the 1941-42 period. The casualty rate is remarkable. Here is the first part.

Researching "Das Reich" I found many posts, especially lower ones, incorrect compared to actual events in the field. At times they managed to spell a man's name wrong, sending researchers on a wild goose chase. Its another piece of a very large puzzle.

Mark - Thanks for your comments which raise some good points. Spelling errors on period documents will always be a source of problems. Earlier this week fellow researcher in Spain pointed out to me that I had both a Josef Prumm and a Josef Pumm from Rgt. "Der Führer" listed in "Führerliste". Pumm was the actual name, despite Prumm being found in a period document. Then there are conflicts between period documents with what is found in books such as Weideringer's "Das Reich" series where he says in his Volume IV, that Ostuf. Walter Ehrmann (b. 5.09.19, SS 401350) died on 28.09.43 as Chef 2./Aufkl.Abt. 2, but multiple casualty reports found in his Personalakte confirm that he died on died on 9.10.43 as Chef 3./Aufkl.Abt. 2. There is over a week's difference and the companies are different, plus I believe that Weidinger was commanding the AA "DR" at the time (according to period documents). I will leave it up to you to elaborate on the differences in postings between period documents and field conditions as this is something that researchers need to understand.
