A bigger edit done on the page 1 list. Letter A preliminary updated. The first two men (already) had incomplete and wrong data in parts. I'm going to add the basics step-by-step and to make corrections if neccessary ; take a critical look if something is still wrong. Please note the structure in general and the system of sources added. Thanks in advance for action reports and combat details !

We from the AHF staff thought it best to add a corresponding list for Germany's Allies, with sub-sections for the countries ; plus Finland.

Best regards
Bernd

This Tiger was posted in the Wehrmacht Awards Forum with the info that it was of "DR" in Normandy , the turret number is "132" which was around that time of known ace SS-Uscha. Ernst Glagow of s.SS-PzAbt.102 so it must be his Tiger with 51+ kills.

Are those 51 kills for Normandy alone? Schneider puts Glagow in a Tiger that ran into the rear of another and was lost on 19/8/44.
Anyone know how many did Egger claim for Normandy?
