Hello to all :D; here goes something....................................

Europe on the edge - Fall Grün 1938.

The mobilization for the Green Case (Fall Grün) envisaged putting up ten armies, of which five would carry out actions against Czechoslovakia, three would be deployed in the west (1. Army, 7. Army and Southwestern Army groupement) and two - the 3. Army in East Prussia and the 4. Army in Western Pomerania would provide cover against Poland and eventually against the Soviet Union. The deployment areas of the armies were determined as follows:

1. In Silesia the 2. Army of the Generaloberst Gerd von Rundstedt (CoS Generalmajor Hans von Salmuth) with the seat of the army command in Cosel. At his disposal he had the following Army Corps, VIII., II. and X. Also were subordinated to its structure the Divisions 8 (Oppeln), 28 (Breslau), 12 (Schwerin), 32 (Köslin), 23 (Potsdam), 6 (Bielefeld), 22 (Bremen), 30 (Lübeck), 3. Pz (Berlin), 78. Landwehr, PR 15 (Zary), 9. Aufkl. Abt (Mot), Heavy Artillery Groups 44 (Neiße) and 64 (Breslau), MG Btl 8 (Lagow ) and 39 (Sprottau), Reconnaissance Squadrons 3/13 and 4/13, I. / 20 Flak Abt., 6. Fernmelden Abt., 48. Pi Btl (Breslau), vehicles of the 605. Transportregiment and other small formations of the army. The 2. Army was subordinate to the 1. Army Group, similar to the forces deployed against Poland.

In Silesia, was also deployed the Silesian Military Commander (Militärbefehlshaber Schlesien) with the 16., 30. and 72. Territorial Divisions (Landwehr), in addition to the 3., 13. and 14. Grenzabschnittskommando (Border Sector Command). These troops not only constituted the reserve of the 2. Army, but also had to be alert against a surprise attack from Poland. The Group of Silesia had a total of 13 divisions.

6. In Lower Austria, to the north and northwest of Vienna, was planned the concentration of the 14. Army, under General d. Inf. Wilhelm Hermann List with General Richard Ruoff as his Chief of Staff. The Army Command was located in the capital city of Austria. This army comprised the Army Corps XVII. and XVIII., as well as the recently organized XIX. Army Corps (Mot). To these Corps were subordinated the infantry divisions 44. (Vienna), the 29 Mot (Erfurt), the 2. Pz (Vienna), the 4. Light (Vienna) and various formations at the army level.

AK) with 3 armored divisions, 2 light divisions, 4 motorized, 2 infantry divisions transported in trucks, 24 infantry divisions, 3 mountain and 1 territorial divisions (landwehr), 3 motorized SS regiments and border command formations, in total 39 divisions (if the Silesia Group is counted the account rises to 42 divisions).
