Thanks to David and Bob for this superb thread on the Battle of Stonne.

Has proved to be very useful in a little project I'm doing - tweaking the Counterattack 1940 map in the BF1942 mod Forgotten Hope, to represent this battle as closely as possible.

Just found this site and it is a great resource!! I'm interested in a topo map of the area around Flavion. I tried the Geoportail but I was unable to use this site since it is in French. Can anyone help?

I also found this link too:

Geoportail does not cover Belgium, which is where Flavion is located, so you won't be able to find it there. I am not aware of a Belgian map service like that.

All the best

I have sources that show that PIII’s P’II’s P IV’s we’re there and a vague reference for the Panzerjager I, does anyone have a reference for the letters presence at Stonne ?

Still about May 15 and in the same area but more north/west: (...) The 14e DI is finally ordered to pull back behind the Aisne River and to establish a defensive line (between Taizy and Attigny) with a bridgehead north of the Aisne River in the town of Rethel. This line will hold until June 9-11.
Very old thread...

The 14e DI did not keep any bridgehead north of the Aisne river. As a matter of fact, the Germans managed to get a bridgehead south by capturing a bridge in Rethel (there is both a river and a canal going parallel in Rethel: the Germans got one of the two bridges). It took about a week of fight for the 14e DI to clear this bridgehead and blow the bridge. The 14e DI actually live through quite a crisis during these days, at the end of May.
