    IM suprised no one has mention the 100TH Jaeger Division, the proved themselves as great street fighters and brave soldiers as they were the last to surrender in stalingrad. Although maybe im a little biased

    I like the set-up--especially the scene on the first page. It definately reminded me of my time when I was in Hagen and Hamburg back in 2000. No schnee yet though.

    Did I ever mention to you that I have a set of Hauptmanns shoulderboards--from this unit? With metal and cloth cyphers. :D I picked these up from Herr Menzel of Goslar.

    OK, Herr Nachtjagdflugzeugführer von Brown!!!

    And Carl von Mannerheim is right. 100. Jägerdivision was probably the best division in the 6. Armee. I always think about it when I speak of elite, but never mention it. Why? :confused: I don't know.

    And the other Carl: yes, because suckers like US (don't forget about that :D ) will pay the price... :rolleyes:

    yep i know--I was at a bookstore last night and picked up another $30.00 book called: Berlin Dance of Death by: Helmut Altner.

    This is a Hitler Youths story of being pressganged into military service for the fighting for Berlin. This is a day-by-day account of what happened and im greatly looking forward to reading this after all the opthers I still need to read.

    It was a choice between this book and one that is a brand new autobio of Gunther Rall--and it is next on my to get list.

    That sounds like interesting reading. I may have to look and see if I can find it. Let me know what you think of it Carl.
