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.

There is some question as to weather or not these are not actually Pak 36 penetrations, the narrative above suggests Koch did not fire into the radiator grill, but it is somewhat vague, To me they look like they could be 7.5 cm Holes but... idk, its certainly worth asking about :
