Organization of the Schützenbrigade (mot)
This booklet will cover the “Schützen” Brigades K.St.N” of 1937 to early 1939. Although many of the K.St.N.’s issued during this period of the war have been found, many have not. These K.St.N’s were used (with the changes noted in the issues of Allgemeine Heeresmitteilungen) until the major reorganization after the French Campaign in late 1940.
Of all the German Army Organizations I have researched, these K.St.N.’s are some of 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 recreate 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. You can provide feedback directly to Larry using his email address contained in the booklet.
