  • I am not sure if anyone else’s feels this way, but I am so freaking confused by all this. Organization of The division that it’s making my head spin a bit.

    How am I suppose to write a fantasy war novel if I don’t understand the basic formation of the units 🙁

  • Why was the heavy MG company called such if it wasn't equipped with any machine guns?
    Thanks in advance 😎

  • Did Panzergrenadiers wear different color uniforms than the standard infantry? I ask because I paint 1/35 figures and might get Panzergrenadiers and would like to know hot to paint them.

  • Kannst du mal bitte ein Video im Allgemeinen darüber machen, wie eine Kompanie, ein Bataillon, Regiment, Division, Trupp usw. aufgebaut sind? Also wie viel Mann so die Einheiten hatten, welcher Rang was geführt hat, und wie die aufgebaut waren, also so wie du es in etwa schon machst(eine Division hat… Bataillone,… Kompanien,… Trupps, keine Ahnung was sonst noch). Ich verstehe das ehrlich gesagt nicht so richtig…

  • My wife's Grandad was in the SS Galician Panzergrenadier Division during WW2 so this is very interesting to me.
    Before people start bitching about this, these men weren't Nazis they were Ukrainian Nationalists who hated Stalin and the Communists.

  • A point to note is that the third Inf.Rgt (mot.) was removed after the Polish campaign because it was found the Inf.Div(mot.) was too unwieldy and would clog up the road network. So it was reduced to two regiments of three battalions – compare to a 1941 Pz Div. with 2-3 Pz Bns and 4 Inf Bns. The combat/manoeuvre size of both was optimised at 6-7 major units – the recon would often act as an additional unit but the engineers were usually split up to support different battle-groups.

  • I've a question, this 1939 layout would be the one used by the 4 motorized division Germany had by the start of the war, yes? Well, Niehorster has listed manpower and equipment according to the 39/40 mobilization plan here http://niehorster.org/011_germany/39_organ_army/39_lt-01.html (That's the 1. leichte for an example). What I'm wondering is, why do the numbers vary so much between sources? For instance, you mention that the 39 mot. div. had only 31 SMG's, whereas according to Niehorster the division would have had an average of 198 (I calculated the average between the 4 divisions) SMG's. Who should I trust here if I intend to find out the actual strength of the average motorized division on field by the start of the war?

    Cheers for the video, never imagined there'd be a source to contradict Niehorster!

  • German industry was incapable of supporting a fully mechanised Wehrmacht.

    That’s why contrary to Nazi propaganda, the Wehrmacht was actually largely supported by horse drawn transport.

  • I have a question maybe you can help with, I am building 1/35 scale German Panzergrenadier Company the picture included with model says indicates the HQ Company had 2 Sd.Kfz 250, a BMW motorcycle with side car and 3 zundapp motorcycles. The company has 4 platoons the first 3 are the same the platoon leader 251/10 followed by 3 251/1’s. The last platoon named the heavy armored platoon consist of 1 Sd.kfz 251/3, 2 Sd.Kfz 251/2, and 2 of the 251/1 sporting heavy machine M.G I know by the picture it’s not your typical M.G.42 or 34.

    So could you shed some light on what the other heavy M.G. Might be, and the Sd.Kfz 250’s for the HQ would those be the 250/3 radio cars? Any insight would be helpful

  • It's pretty hard to find statistics of motorized infantry divisions in certain period, for instance early 1944. Then it's difficult to find numbers how much these units actually had tank destroyers and assault guns. I doubt did many of motorized infantry divisions have 31 tank destroyers and 42 assault guns. More likely they had hardly more than half of those numbers even if counting those in work shops.

  • Thank you so much for providing a detailed description of the German military. I find your videos extremely fascinating and educational for proper historians (i.e. myself) and a fan of the German military of ww2. Excellent work, my friend.

  • Can you do a video on the company scale version of this? How many men would be in a company of Panzergrenadiers and what they did? (Also were the SS panzergrenadier's set up the same way, or were hey organized different?)
