unknown Heeresgruppen

Post by Rossano » 27 Sep 2021 17:01

Hello
In a list with Ic + AO (in Armeen and Heeresgruppen) dated june 41 there are also 2 strange Heeregruppen "Flora" and "Falkenh..?..".
Probably Flora and Falkenh...?... were used for camouflage purpose. Who knows for which Heeresgruppen (or other commands) ?
Thanks

Is this related to preparations for the attack on Russia? Falkenhorst was commander in Norway at that time, see Operation Silver Fox.

To Your question : I think so
Thanks. So, "Falkenh..?.." is Falkenhorst. I agree, but he commanded Armee Norwegen, so why upgraded to Heeresgruppe (Falkenhorst) ? Camouflage ?
Apart that, what about the other one (Heeresgruppe Flora) ? Any idea ? Maybe another Armee ?
