Panzer Division HG at Salerno Report

Post by Tom from Cornwall » 14 Oct 2018 11:45

Hi,

Does anyone have a copy of the following report that they would be willing to share?
Generalleutnant Wilhelm Schmalz, “Der Kampf der Panzerdivision ‘Hermann Göring’ bei Salerno vom 9. bis 17.9.1943,” Fol.1, MSg 1/2465, Bundesarchiv-Militärarchiv, Freiburg (BA-MA).
Regards

Tom

The author wrote a couple of FMS but this one is not in the catalog. I wonder whether that's a contemporary report rather than a post-war account.

Hi,

I thought it might be contemporary, perhaps the FMS one is basically a rehash of the one he did for the German army. Do you know if that BAMA reference seems complete?

It does not look like a BAMA reference. They usually start with RH 19 or something similar. But I don't know all the classifications.

Looking at Invenio (the search engine of BAMA), the reference for the article is the following: BArch MSG 2/13110 (with MSG 1/2465 being the old signature).
The report appears to have been written in 1947 for the Historical Division.

Cheers,
Sean

Sean,

That's great, many thanks for that. Do you happen to know how easy it is to get a document copied from the BAMA?

Regards

Tom
