Schleppgruppe 1 (known as well as "Gruppe Herzog")

Post by MaxP » 22 Aug 2019 19:45


I am looking for all available information on Schleppgruppe 1 (know as well as Gruppe Herzog) for period February - May 1945. Also looking for information about other units which created Gruppe Herzog (for example 14.(Eis)/KG 55 and Schleppstaffel FsAOK).

Does somebody have suggestion if did appear some article or book about above mentioned units? Or could somebody tell me if in BA/MA, PRO Kew or NARA is some material relating to Gruppe Herzog for this period?

The "Bible" for the histories of Luftwaffe glider units is:

Schlaug, Georg. Die deutschen Lastensegler-Verbände 1937-1945: Eine Chronik aus Berichten, Tagebüchern, Dokumenten. Stuttgart: Motorbuch Verlag, 1985. ISBN: 3-613-01065-8. Hb. Dj. 296p. Illus. Maps. Appendices. Glossary of abbreviations. Bibliography.

This book will answer all of your questions. If you can't find an affordable copy you can buy on the internet, then try a large library.
