I. SS-Panzerkorps in Normandy

Post by Panther Arthur » 16 Jun 2020 16:26

Hello all,

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,

The FMS series includes interviews with several of its commanders and staff officers

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.
