If you think Selke is bad, try Fahcolor Buhler. The last time I ordered, Selke couldnt scan over-sized maps, or things in color and you had to use Buhler. They charged my 50 Euro for a single map scan - something that at the time would cost $5 at NARA.

But, what can you do ?

Is there a way to know beforehand how many pages a document is? It seems difficult to estimate how much a document is going to cost otherwise (and whether it's worth buying)...

Shouldn't it be much cheaper to order the documents on microfiche? It's listed at 2.5 € per unit and each microfiche should contain dozens of pages (unless I'm misunderstanding something about their pricing).

Only if you can also spot it in the NARA catalogs. Otherwise, no way until you get the file on your desk.

Thanks. That's a shame - I'm mainly interested in RH 15 KAN (which aren't available in NARA, to my knowledge) and a bunch of Luftwaffe KStN that aren't either.

Hello,

Thanks for your offer. My main goal is to recreate early to mid war divisions and other significant units. I'm interested in the KAN as well, as they also provide useful information to recreate the unit's KStN when not available.

For the Luftwaffe, I'm interested in recreating 1940-1942 flak units and 1942-1943 Luftwaffe field divisions.

For Luftwaffe KStN, I'm interested in:
  • RL 2-III/1339 - Nr. 2465 (L) Flaklolonne (42 t) (mot)
  • RL 2-III/1807 - Nr. 5221 (L) 1. Kompanie einer Panzerjäger-Abteilung einer Luftwaffen-Felddivision
  • RL 2-III/1339 - Nr. 2207 (L) Flak-Batterie (2 cm)
  • RL 2-III/1339 -Nr. 2331 (L) Flak-Batterie 8,8 cm (4 Geschütze) (mot Z)
  • RL 2-III/585 - This one should contain KStN in the 5032-5893b range, but in the range is 1938-1945 so it isn't clear whether they cover the time period I'm interested in. For the record, Here's the list of Luftwaffe Field Division KStN in early 1943, which I'd hope to find in this file.
  • RL 2-III/566 - This one should contain KStN in the 3000-3999 range (signal troops), I'm interested in 3219, 3360, 3363, 3365b and 3367 (as listed above)
For Luftwaffe KAN:
  • RL 2-III/1676 - Nr. 5204 (L) Schwere Kompanie der Luftwaffe
  • RL 2-III/1691 - Nr. 9351 (L) Stab eines Artillerie-Regiments (tmot) einer Luftwaffen-Felddivision
  • RL 2-III/1692 - Nr. 9361 (L) Stab einer Artillerie-Abteilung (tmot) einer Luftwaffen-Felddivision
  • RL 2-III/1693 - Nr. 9425 (L) Sturmgeschützbatterie (mot) einer Luftwaffen-Felddivision
  • RL 2-III/1694 - Nr. 9451 (L) Stab einer Panzerjäger-Abteilung (tmot) einer Luftwaffen-Felddivision
  • RL 2-III/1695 - Nr. 9463 (L) 2. und 3. Kompanie (tmot) einer Panzerjäger-Abteilung (tmot) einer Luftwaffen-Felddivision
  • RL 2-III/1696 - Nr. 9511 (L) Pionierkompanie (tmot) einer Luftwaffen-Felddivision
For the Heer, I'm looking for the KAN of units for which the KStN is presumably lost. I'm particularly interested in mountain division KAN as a good chunk of the KStN are lost for the pre-1944 version.
  • RH 15/812 - Nr. 131c.- Schützen-Kompanie c (this one is an exception, I'm interested in obtaining the KAN of the standard mid war rifle company as I hope it will contain the number of authorized sniper rifles / schiessbecher / G41)
  • RH 15/818 - Nr. 152.- Gebirgsjäger-Maschinengewehr-Kompanie (I'm interested in the 1941 version, which hopefully should be there as the dates are listed as 1941-1944)
  • RH 15/829 - Nr. 177.- Schwere Gebirgsjäger-Kompanie (I'm interested in the 1941 version, which hopefully should be there as the dates are listed as 1941-1944)
  • RH 15/885 - Nr. 417.- Stab einer Gebirgsartillerie-Abteilung
  • RH 15/886 - Nr. 428.- Gebirgsbatterie (zu 4 Geschützen)
  • RH 15/920 - Nr. 601.- Stab eines Werfer-Regiments (mot), Stab eines schweren Werfer-Regiments (mot) (It's unclear whether it's the 2.43 or the 11.43 version, I'm only interested in the former)
  • RH 15/921 - Nr. 621.- Stabsbatterie eines Werfer-Regiments (mot), Stabsbatterie eines schweren Werfer-Regiments (mot) (It's unclear whether it's the 2.43 or the 11.43 version, I'm only interested in the former)
  • RH 15/922 - Nr. 627.- Stabs-Batterie (mot) einer Werfer-Abteilung (mot) (It's unclear whether it's the 2.43 or the 11.43 version, I'm only interested in the former)
  • RH 15/929 - 702a.- Stab eines Pionier-Bataillons (tmot) - Year is unclear, I'm interested in the 11.41 and 4.43 versions
  • RH 15/934 - Nr. 711b.- Pionier-Kompanie b - Year is unclear, I'm interested in the 11.41 and 4.43 versions
  • RH 15/935 - Nr. 712.- Pionier-Kompanie (mot)
  • RH 15/986 - Nr. 1114 (gp).-Panzergrenadier-Kompanie a - Same reason as KAN 131c
  • RH 15/997 - Nr. 1148a.- Schnelle Panzerjäger-Kompanie (7,5cm oder 7.62cm Pak (Sfl.))
  • RH 15/1002 - Nr. 1153a(gp.).- Stabs-Kompanie a eines Panzergrenadier-Regiments (gepanzert)
  • RH 15/1013 - Leichte Kolonne einer Panzer-Abteilung (Sonderausführung) (für eine Panzer-Abteilung 2 leichten und 1 mittleren Panzer-Kompanien)
This is only KAN which I know are available - there are other documents (RH 15/1207 onwards) that presumably contain a bunch of other KAN, but unfortunately I can't know which ones are contained in them. But if you had any in the list above, it would already be greatly appreciated.
