3rd SS Germanische panzer korps. Post by Robdutch 18 Jun 2004 13:37. Can anyone also tell me strength and composition of the 11 ss div Nordland an the ss brigade Nederland?

3rd SS Germanische panzer korps. Hello, Can anyone tell me what the strength was the 3rd ss panzerkorps when it arrived on the eastern front. Can anyone also tell me strength and composition of the 11 ss div Nordland an the ss brigade Nederland? Thanks for any replies.

The 3rd Panzer Army (German: 3. Panzerarmee) was a German armoured formation during World War II, formed from the 3rd Panzer Group on 1 January 1942. The 3rd Panzer Group (German: Panzergruppe 3) was formed on 16 November 1940. It was a constituent part of Army Group Centre and participated in Operation Barbarossa and fought in the Battle of Moscow in late 1941 and early 1942. Later it served in Operation Typhoon, where it was placed under operational control of the Ninth Army

Hard cover, small format (6" x 9"), 400 pages, more than 100 photos, including 50+ previously unpublished photos taken by a member of SS-Panzerjger-Abteilung 54 of the 4. SS-Panzergrenadier-Brigade "Nederland" and score of maps.

This book is typical Tieke: terse, to-the point, factual and exciting reading! It presents all of the original material from Tragödie um die Treue as well as selected excerpts from Korps Steiner and original material added just for the English edition. It concentrates on the fighting in the Baltic but covers the fighting all the way until the end of the war including an extensive section on the final fighting in Berlin.

This book represents the only thorough account in English of some of the formations in the corps: e.g., the 11.SS-Freiwilligen-Panzergrenadier-Division "Nordland" and the aforementioned 4. SS-Panzergrenadier-Brigade "Nederland".

This book was an interesting read about the III SS-Panzer-Korps (Germanisches).

The book is rather terse and rather detailed which might bore those the like light reading about personal experiences. This book is for the die-hard historical types.

The book covers the formation of the III (which was made up of Norwegians, Swedes and Dutch who were recruited to fight the Bolsheviks) it actions till the end of the war.

Chapters: Formation, Transfer to Croatia, The 18th Armee, The Storm Breaks Loose, Withdraw of the III, Fighting in Estonia, Between HungerBurg and Narwa, The Soviet Landing Operation at Merkula, The Southern Front of Narwa, The Narwa Bridgehead, The evacuation of Narwa, The Tannenberg Position, Fire Brigade in the Northern Sector, Withdrawal from Estonia, 'The Baldone, Doblen and Autz Areas of Operation', Preekulan - Skuodas, Sea transport to Pomerania, The III in Pomerania, The Altdamm Bridgehead, Reorganization West of the Oder, Operation Berlin, The Storm Breaks, The Battle for Berlin, The Russian Assault on the Center of Berlin, The Final Phase of the Battle for Berlin, Breakout or Captivity, The Remnants of the 9. Armee Break out of the Halbe Pocket, The end of Heergruppe Weichsel in Norther Germany.

The are also Appendices that offer more detail to formations, info on the Finnish Volunteers, assorted recommendations for medals, and an explanation about punishment.

There are many maps and photos some of which are said to have never been published.

Overall this book was a fun read and is guided in principle about detailing what happened. There is next to nothing about politics or judgment. The closest thing to it is at the end of the book where Tieke mentions the Soviet records showing that Stalin had planned to invade Germany and possibly the Rest of the Europe. Tieke asked an interesting question if Germany had saved Europe from the Soviets with Barbarossa.

Again this is a must have book for the serious scholar of the Eastern Front.

Many pictures and maps provide the book with great detail covering the formation and destruction of this unit at the end of WW2. The units that made up this formation are well covered. The many battle that this unit participated in is amazing to read about. The withdraw to the british sector at the end of the war is also well covered.

Have read many books on the war on the Eastern Front, a Brutal conflict fought in the most Atrocious Conditions.

This is an exceptionally detailed and well written accounting of the III Germanisches SS Panzer Korps... dryly entertaining but very educational and satisfying. If you're researching the fate of a battalion or company this is the place to find your information.

The DVD is not viewable in Australia. Incorrect region for this country. Did not see any warning on the advert. Not happy.

I found this book, a superbly written account of the germanic ss panzer korps. For people interrested in the european volunteers serving in the waffen ss, than this book must belong in your library. however, I found it something of a hard read, becaause it's very detailed, so you constantly need to fight your way through a lot of unit designations!

For me however, this book is another major piece of a puzzle concerning the european volunteers of the waffen ss serving in the soviet union! This book will folow the trail of the 11th ss Nordland, and the 24th ss Nederland! Not much is really written about these divisions, so if you are interested than this book is a must have! I must add from a purely militairy point of vieuw, i was facinated by the 3ss panzer korps militairy accomplishments!!!!!!!!!!!1 the immense personal bravery and courage, and their willingness to sacrifice for what they believed in! especialy the korps defence of Narva, while being grossly outnumbered by the red army, the korps fought with determination and dealt out death and destruction out of proportion to their numbers!!!!!!!!!!! and continuesly managed to withdraw in good order! the book also contains story's of personal tragedy's, and the truest sense of kameradeships! once you start reading you will not want to put it down! excellent work Tieke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Like most of Wilhelm Tieke's books, excellently written blending tremendous historic details along with many engrossing personal accounts. Of the 60 JJ Fedorowicz titles that are in my collection, this book is my favorite. Recommended without hesitation for anyone interested in the Waffen SS or War on the Eastern Front. Also note, this book was selected as one the Top Ten Military Books for the year 2001 as determined from the Stone&Stone.com Military Book Survey.
