K.St.N of the German Schützenregiment
This booklet will cover the “Schützen” Regiment K.St.N” of 1.2.41. Although Some of the K.St.N.’s issued in February 1941 have been found, most were not. I believe that these K.St.N’s were not used a great deal, because the German units used early war K.St.N.’s, with the changes noted in the issues of Allgemeine Heeresmitteilungen, until mid-1941. Also, most of these new K.St.N.’s did not change the early war organizations from what was being used at that time.
Of all the German Army Organizations I have researched, these K.St.N.’s are the easiest to recreate because a great deal of information can be found in the German records. Using existing K.St.N.’s existing strength reports and other good data sources I have been able to recreated excellent estimates of these early war K.St.N.’s.

Larry Schaeffer has put together a great collection of eBooks looking at the German Unit Organization for the early war period (1939-41). Though many of the K.St.N are not available as original documents Larry, through years of research, has been able to recreate theoretical versions of these K.St.N. This is a great resource for anyone with interest in early war unit organization. The eBook has copies of these K.St.N along with the rational for their composition.
