Schleppgruppe 1 February - May 1945

Post by Jakub Tomek » 16 Oct 2005 12:47

Hallo,

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?

Thank you in advance for help

Jakub -

There is a complete and very detailed history of Schleppgruppe 1/Gruppe "Herzog" in an article by Georg Schlaug published in Jet & Prop magazin, Heft 2/2000, pages 57-65. It covers all of its operations to Posen, Glogau and Breslau, January to April 1945.

Schleppgruppe/Gruppe "Herzog" I never heard about that unit before. What kind of unit was it?
