Very kind of you to provide him with the details, but that goes too far for me. It is not a secret website, it has been discussed often before and in my opinion, some kind of independant thinking should be expected.
But that's just my not so humble opinion.

Piet,
your observation may be correct, but I cannot be sure and it was not a big effort to answer.
In my opinion a kind approach is always better.
And in any case if I find a KStN 25 of February 41 I will inform you.
All the best
Max

Max,

Thank you very much. I may have overreacted a bit, but I was annoyed. Finding things yourself is way more satisfying than getting things handed over wihtout anything having to do.

For myself: much boring stuff.

Jan-Hendrik
There is a lot of interesting data, actually. I mean, except if you are a KStN buff :)

Plenty of documents on landing doctrine or on ships. All detailed orders by AOK 16. A lot of aerial photographs (if that's your thing). A handwritten manuscript by Paulus. Etc.

Does anyone know whether the Lossberg study of Barbarossa is in those documents? It would be in the OKW files. I have gone through much of them, including some of the "miscellaneous" files, but haven't seen it.

Documents on Barbarossa in the OKW inventory (Findbuch 12450) are in Akte 57, 58, 59, 63, 69, 70, but a lot of documents on Barbarossa are in OKH inventory (Findbuch 12451) too.
All the best
