That site shows the Germans as having 24 German and 5 Italian divisions. It does not list the 29th per se, but does list the "Italian SS division" in 14th Army reserve. I read that as being the 29th SS.

The 98th VG division listed in LXXVI Pz Corp seems to be a mistake, and should read 98th infantry division.
