Panzerwrecks 14 page 64 – Ausführung update

William Horn contacted me a couple of weeks ago regarding the Panther on page 64 of Panzerwrecks 14: I have recently acquired volume 14. On the lower picture on page 64 you claim that the vehicle is a Panther A. If you look at the jack block rack, the small cable rack, and the position […]

Panzerwrecks 18 – Terrier Battle narrative

From ‘Current Reports from overseas No.82’, I found this narrative of the ‘Raamsdonk Terrier Battle’ as featured in Panzerwrecks 18, pages 66-73: Introduction 1. This report of an action by a troop of Sherman tanks and an infantry platoon affords a good example of quick thinking and initiative on the part of individual tank commanders. […]

Panzerwrecks 1, P73 – RSO identification

Predrag Blanusa touched base a couple of months back, with useful nuggets of information about the RSO on page 73 of PW1. Over to Predrag: I was recently expanding one of my databases with information from several Waffen-SS documents, when I stumbled upon a familiar license plate number – SS-224 784. The source for my […]

Panzerwrecks 19 – some additions from Daniele Guglielmi

Daniele Guglielmi, long-time ‘friend of Panzerwrecks family’ sent in some additional information regarding some of the subjects in Panzerwrecks 19: Yugoslavia. Over to you Daniele: Pages 10 and 11, one of the Semovente L40 da 47/32 is an early production (it had the side hatch, even if welded shut in the factory), the other one is […]

Panzerwrecks 19 page 60 – location update

Hats off to Janez Čokl for correcting the location of the Jagdpanzer 38 on page 60 of Panzerwrecks 19: Yugoslavia. Over to Janez: I saw one location mistake in Panzerwrecks 19 (nice work). Photo of Hetzer on page 60 was taken in Celje, not in Maribor. (Google street view link) Probably was the same vehicle as those on […]

Panzerwrecks 16, pages 37, 39, 57 & 87/88 – updates

Rudi Schoeters dropped me a line a wee while back (March!) about some of the vehicles in Panzerwrecks 16: Bulge, and only now do I get the time to add his information to the blog. Over to Rudi: Page 37 The Pz.Beob.Wg.III in Houffalize: the top left pic shows clearly that this vehicle has two different […]

Panzerwrecks 13 pages 86-89 – location update

Perry Rowe got in touch with an update as to the location of the photos on pages 86-89 of Panzerwrecks 13: Italy 2. Over to you Perry: I was just looking through this again and noticed the caption to the series of pics pp86-89. Daniele Guglielmi has wrongly ascribed these to Salerno in Sept ’43 […]

Panzerwrecks 18 page 55 – Another match up from Matthias Radu!

Just realized that I made a near-perfect “Now” picture of the Middelburg Stadthuis on p.55 in PW18 when I was on holiday in the Netherlands in August this year. It lacked the situational awareness that I had seen the picture a month before in your pdf-file. But the penny dropped when flipping through the book. […]

Panzerwrecks 18, page 80. Who was ‘Kunigunde?’

The daughter of Holy Roman Emperor Frederick III? Saint Cunigunde of Luxembourg? A search of the internet does not get us too far, as least insofar as this rare name relates to a StuGIV of SS-Pz.Abt.17. We thought by now that someone out there would have come up with an answer. Bueller?… Bueller?

Panzerwrecks 18, sPSW (2cm) (Sd.Kfz.234/1) page 91

Interestingly enough, on 23 April 1945, the 47th AFA Bn fired Concentration 52 at a “20mm on truck,” using 25 rounds of M48 and 2 rounds of WP. “Effect: vehicle destroyed, burning.” The 234/1? They also threw in a lot of Pozit-fuzed rounds: April 12 con.15 Personnel, 68 Rds M54, 20 Pozit. April 13 con.14 […]
