So, as per definition, a team is any number of persons, ranging from one and above. Thus, Erik is correct when saying that three-four persons is in deed a team!
This is not a constructive debate, if we turn this into a question of semantics we will miss the point.
But OK - here we go.
Manchester does only mention one German engineer (Daur) working at Bofors (from April 1921 and 10 years on).
He also mentions one member of the Krupp board (Karl Pfirsch) sent to Scandinavia at some point of time and staying for an unspecified length of time.
Steckzén only mentions three Krupp engineers working at Bofors.
Wilhelm Badenheuer, employed by Bofors as a metallurgist from 1920 to 1925.
Julius Daur, working as a liaison-engineer from 1921 to 1930.
Walter Nill, who relieved Daur and stayed from 1930 to 1935.
The metallurgist and the liaison-engineer were there for different reasons and as a result of two different agreements between the two companies.
Two men working with different tasks in entirely different fields does not make a team!
