Divisions of the 17th Army

Post by Karl Demelhuber » 09 Sep 2023 16:29

Hi, Im looking to find all the divisions and divisional Generals that made up the 17th Army. Army Group A (Caucasus)
Any help would be much appreciated.

Also any information on how one finds this information for my own future investigations.

Thank you
Colin

The gold standard for OOBs of the German ground forces is "Die Geheimen Tagesbeichte der Deutschen Wehrmachtfuehrung in Zweiten Weltkrieg" edited by Kurt Mehner. It has 12 volumes and is material compiled for the KTB-OKW but not included. Periodic O/Bs from June 1940 to April 1945 are included- photocopies of the OKH originals. Unfortunately my computer is in the shop right now and this one is so bad that if I go to search an article on 17th Army I might lose this page before I send it. and a fast search of my books doesn't elicit the time period 17th Army was in the Crimea, so I'll have to give you the volumes of Die Geheimen Tagesberichte containing the OKH OOBs by time period and you can select the volumes that would contain the Crimea struggle of 17th Army. I did ascertain that it left the Crimea in November 1943.
I originally obtained the OOBs by having a university library that had the set copy them. I later managed to get a cheap copy of all 12 volumes.
Here's the breakdown: OOBs for Sept-Dec 1942 are in volumes 1 (published in 2 parts) and 2. Jan-May 1943 weren't published but I obtained copies of them from the BA-MA Freiberg. June-Auag 1943 are in volume 7 and Sept-Nov 1943 in volume 8.
Hope this helps,

Thank you Bill, I can see that you are trying to help here, but unfortunately I’m not quite sure I understand what you are proposing.
