Kampfgruppen with 21.Pz.Div june/july 1944

Post by AETIUS 1980 » 06 Jan 2022 10:00

Hello, I am looking for information about the various Kampfgruppen attached to the 21.Pz.Div (Kriegsgliederung, INSUM, various reports, maps,...) during the period between June 7 and July 7, 1944.
Thank you
AETIUS

Hello Sam, yes I am always interested taker of information such as this. Although having already read a part (I admit that at this moment I do not know which ones), I am interested. Thanks again for your energy.

All the best

AETIUS 1980:
There are some bits and pieces of 21st Pz records at the German Docs in Russia site, but IIRC they consist of the medical and signal unit KTBs from Normandy and don't have much about combat. However, they also have the II./192 PzGren's KTB (KG Rausch? or Rauch?) from July-Aug, but limited in coverage and its entries are brief. It seems to be the only surviving 21st Pz docs from 'Goodwood' but that battalion was defending in Caen and so wasn't directly deployed against VIII Corps' attack.

Sam
Are the intel docs you have from Canadian writer Terry Copp's research materials posted online about 10 years ago? I can't find them online anymore, and I really wanna get em.

Hello Sean, I was able to find interesting information on this site about Kampfgruppe RAUCH between June 6 and 28. Thanks for the attention though.
Best regards
