LSSAH deployment

Post by Birgitte Heuschkel » 23 May 2002 17:03

I peeked at Feldgrau's list of LSSAH deployments but found that while it supplies a lot of dates and numbers, it doesn't really make me much wiser. Does anyone have, or know where to find, a more, shall we say, narrative history of the LSSAH from its early days to its surrender?

Hi
For books you should really get Leibstandarte I-IV/2 by Lewhmann/Tiemann, trully wonderful history of the division.
There is a website for this division which is:

Good luck

I'm going to read the entire thing since it does appear to contain a lot of facts. The, ehhh, more romanticized parts, brothers, never failing, never once this, never once that, I will take with a few ounces of salt, though.

You sure this link is correct? I can't get the server in question.

Oh, by the way, I have certainly checked the Third Reich Factbook already, but same as with Feldgrau, it provides me with the dates and numbers I need, but very little 'narrative' -- I guess that what I really want is to know what it was like for the men of the division, their jokes, experiences, memories, thoughts... There is also a fair number of sites that deal with the cases of Malmedy, etc., but again, while I find these an interesting part of my research, they are not my primary objective.

Hmmm. Why am I not surprised. That website is build by Thomas Vanhassel aka Thomas Ramcke aka Chief Whip aka StandartenfuehrerSS aka FJ-Steamboat-Willy.

Info on LSSAH

Post by Wolfkin » 25 May 2002 23:01

Hello Birgitte!

What do you need to know about the Leibstandarte? I have been researching the German Panzer Divisions, including the 1st SS Panzer Division Leibstandarte, for quite a few years now. If you need any information let me know. Or, if you have any info that I don't have, I hope you will share! :D

wolfram55, eh? He IMed me on yahoo, once. Got real nasty when I said that I didn't think the Waffen-SS was the greatest military formation that ever graced the battlefield.
