Lists of the commanders of the regiments

Post by taurus » 28 Jul 2019 11:06

Hello.
Please tell me if there are lists of the commanders of the regiments of the Land Forces of Germany and the USA during the Second World War. Or lists of losses among the commanders of the regiment of these countries.
Thank.

I very much doubt there is a single all inclusive list of every single regimental commander (unless it has been compiled by a private individual after a lot of effort) as that would be a huge undertaking, and there are probably quite a lot of regiments where the commanders are now unknown due to no surviving documentation. You would probably need to look in unit related books and archive files just to make a start but to even make a dent in compiling such a list it could take years of effort.

Hello.
Thanks for the answer.
I simply thought that some reference books with lists of regimental commanders during the Second World War were published.
There are such reference books in the Soviet Union, and it was published back in 1981.
"Reference book of commanders of rifle, spare rifle, spare ski, motorized, motorized rifle, airborne regiments from 1940-1946."
I want to note that the number and types of regiments of the USSR in comparison with the number of regiments of the USA or Germany was much higher. As was the number of commanders who held these posts.
However, according to the Red Army such work came out.
There are also reference books on the commanders of fighter aviation regiments, self-propelled artillery regiments.
And I made a reference book on the dead, captured, dead from wounds by regimental commanders of all kinds, devoting a lot of time to this.
So it was thought, maybe in the USA and Germany during the Second World War, something like that came out.

The difference might be that all the documentation for the Russian ones still exists whereas they no longer do for the German. There are lists such as Kriegsrangliste that still exist for units but that tends to just list those officers in those positions at a specific moment in time rather than who was there before and after.

Some units are better covered than others. Some have the lists you seek and others don't. Veit Scherzer has published such lists for some units.

Thank you for the clarification.
I am interested in even if not the complete lists of regimental commanders with the dates of command during the entire war, but at least those who died, died from wounds and were held captive while in office.
But perhaps this is still an impossible task. So as far as I know there is nothing like this even in brigades and divisions.
