Here's another item I found today while searching CARL -- Pocket Book of the German Army, 1943.

Per the abstract:

This pocket book of the German Army was intended for the use of intelligence officers of field formations and units. There are 5 parts including: general principles of organization and tactics (types of divisions, GHQ troops, supply and administrative services); organization (infantry division, motorized division and light division, armored division, mountain division, GHQ troops); German Air Force units (anti-aircraft artillery and GAF field divisions, airborne troops and GAF transport); conventional signs; and equipment.


It's sort of the Cliff's Notes of the German Army. :D

Freedom is precious and many gave their lives for it. It is the duty of the future generation
to remember that sacrifice, and offer some sacrifice for themselves if Freedom is threatened.

No, Poppy. I checked. Tank Destroyers are not mentioned. ;)

Looks like part of the Handbook on German Military Forces. That was a compilation of these kind of thing.

I was pleasantly surprised when I came across it. I was even more surprised that someone here hadn't found it and posted it.

I guess the old saying is true: "Even a blind squirrel...". :D

On checking, it's not this one: HyperWar: Handbook on German Military Forces (TM-E 30-451)

It figures that HyperWar would have the most current edition. :)
