Default German Military Dictionary & Abbreviations

All:

I posted two US War Department documents that my be useful to researchers - German Military Dictionary and German Military Abbreviations. Both are WWII documents. You can download them at my web site under "Research Tools."

Cheers,
Marc

That is the best and most easily accessed on-line presentation of the Dictionary, Abbreviations and FMS Index I've seen so far.

The problem is that very few will see your post and make note of it. They will just come here again and again and ask the same questions over, and over, and over, and over again. So I have made note of it and the next time someone asks a Dictionary, Abbreviations or FMS Index question I will direct them to your site.

Larry:

Thanks. Perhaps there is a way to post them to this forum to obviate re-invention of the wheel? To me, the researcher, a good dictionary in critical. Of course, I welcome visitors to my site and have no intention of removing these research tools. Just a thought.

Of course the other useful site for finding aids is sturmpanzer.com

Marc

I agree with Larry and i think the link thoroughly deserves to be pinned here.

Yes, i noticed the references are hosted by sturmpanzer.com another site i can hardly praise enough for what it's made available to the research community.

The owner of sturmpanzer.com very graciously offered me some server space for large documents. Without his assistance I would not be able to post the .pdf documents that are on my web site which, at the moment, is constrained to 60MB. So, not only is sturmpanzer.com at great site, but the owner is a wonder person.

Cheers!

Question Individual ResearchForm , Personality research.

I have a named German Helmet. I would like to identify the rank of the
owner. This is on a small piece of paper that was in the Helmet. It reads
Hgd. Roland Willm'anw . I am not sure of the last letter on the last name.
I am unable to find any information on the rank. Can someone help ?

Tom.

Welcome Tom, I think few people will see your question here, i would suggest taking some photos and then starting a new thread for the subject. I am sure people will be able to help you figure it out.
