Maybe it was Stalag VI-C? 1,721 (I have seen slightly different numbers) POWs liberated, all of them females (plus some babies :) )?

Hmm, the quiz seems to have come to a grinding halt, not unlike Operation Typhoon...

Maybe a hint as to his nationality or an engagement in which he could have been involved?

Aleks,

Could you give the answer to your question?

I'll post a new question - when Adolf Hitler visited Paris in June 1940, he ordered two monuments in the city to be destroyed. Who were the individuals commemorated on these monuments?

Attrition,

Not Marx and Engels. The two people who were the subjects of the statues served in WW1.

Polar Bear,

Correct - your turn to ask a question.
