    Richard,

    first of all: a big thank-you for your dedication to & your passion for this (sadly almost forgotten) “niche” of war history.

    Just a short comment for the unpracticed reader with all respect: an “OKH-Gliederungsbefehl” (order for organization of units?) was (especially as of mid 1943)
    a noble goal or target – more or less.
    IMHO literally a handful of Heeres/Waffen-SS Panzer Divisions would meet this order
    (particularly with reference to a Divison Panther Abteilung/battalion) at that point in time.

    Sincerely yours

    Frank G. from Germany

      Hey Frank,

      Thanks for the comment and i agree. For that reason i have always found it much more engaging to think of units in terms of theoretical instead of actual, at least you get the whole picture. I suspect some panzer divisions in the West just before Normandy would have come the closest to meeting this org chart.

      Cheers,
      Richard

    Dear Richard,

    me too ;-). – absolutely no offense meant!

    But e. g. regarding D-Day (in the broadest sense) only two divisions come to my mind
    (1. SS-Panz.Div. “LSSAH” + partially 12. SS-Panz./Panz.Gren.Div. “HJ”) regardless of any independent units.

    Cheers,
    Frank
