I currently researching the operations of I. SS-Panzerkorps in Normandy in mid to late July 1944, and would like to learn more about its structure, personalities, HQ locations and operational orders it gave out.
I understand from Douglas Nash's book the structure of a corps headquarters. Now I just need detail from I. SS-Panzerkorps in Normandy.
I have the NARA MF T354 603-604, but detail on Normandy but detail is bit scarce when it comes to actual operations, personalities and events. Still pushing through all the slides.
In short - I need more than the odd reference to Fritz Kraemer and Sepp Dietrich in a secondary source.
Has there been a thread on this that I haven't found? Or a book that gives more detail? (Or am I writing it - haha)
I have yet to push through every aspect of this massive site - please forgive me if something was right under my nose.
Looking to learn more,

Michael Reynolds' Steel Inferno is the history of I SS corps in Normandy.
Samuel W Mitcham's Panzers in Normandy is baased on the papers of General Eberbach who commanded Panzer Gruppe West and 5th Panzer Army during that period.
