Hello,

It really depends on what kind of information you are looking for. My assessment is that about 70% of the text are quotes taken directly from the book by Wilhelm Tieke on the III. (germ.)SS-Panzer-Korps, that is all the text concerning actions. The maps are also from Tieke. The other major source, used in its entirety, is the Tätigkeitsbericht des Pi.-Aufstellungsstabes, that can also be found on the only roll containing documents about this corps at NARA. Additionally, as minor sources, some quotes are used as given by a total of seven veterans, as well as 13 photos, showing mostly training and soldiers taking the oath.


Best regards
Blanusa

About Pehrssons promotion: Pehrsson was atleast back with the 3./SS-Pz-Aufkl-Abt 11 on the 28.6.44, just a week after his promotion. I have no evidence that he participated in his course in june really, but I just have a hard time seeing that he would leave the unit while it was engaged in Latvia.
Hi,

Does anyone have the promotion dates to Obersturmführer and Hauptsturmführer for Pehrsson?

Pehrsson stated that this occured on April 15, 1945, about the same time when he was appointed to 1C in the divisional staff.
