Albert Graf von der Goltz[edit]

Indeed finding a picture will be difficult. I will keep an eye open and see what I can find. MisterBee1966 (talk) 19:34, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Commons Images[edit]

I have no clue why this may be so. MisterBee1966 (talk) 18:36, 24 October 2009 (UTC)

I think you can and if someone has objections it would get removed anyhow. I believe the process requires you to state the reasoning. MisterBee1966 (talk) 16:22, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Maps[edit]

Hello. I've just seen your astonishing battle maps in several American Civil War articles, so I'd like to know if you could make one or two about the Battle of Kursk. Please let me know... --Sepp talk 10:32, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi. No, sorry, I do only Civil War-related maps. I have a lengthy backlog of those already. Hal Jespersen (talk) 15:23, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for responding. Do you have another user in mind who could do it? The battle is too complicated (at least the Greek edition I'm working on) and existing maps insufficient of clarifying the situation.

P.S. Carry on the good work! --Sepp talk 16:47, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. You could try User talk:Andrei nacu, who has done some very nice maps. Hal Jespersen (talk) 18:41, 7 November 2009 (UTC)

Reunifying new account[edit]

Well you'd need to address that at each Wikipedia in turn. I'm afraid there's nothing we can do other than renames etc on this specific Wikipedia. Cheers. The Rambling Man (talk) 14:40, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Albert Graf von der Goltz (Wehrmachtbericht)[edit]

Done! Nice article! Maybe add the {{Persondata}} template? MisterBee1966 (talk) 18:22, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

Mini review of Hartwig von Ludwiger[edit]

Hi, I will check my sources and see if I can find some additional information on the guy. You may want to look at the citations.

  1. Citations always go after punctuations and never in the middle of a sentence.
  2. I took the liberty and added a notes section believing that it adds to the readability
  3. Maybe add a section "External links" for references that are not book related
  4. A few of your citations could be bundled by using named references

Cheers MisterBee1966 (talk) 13:58, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

  1. One more comment, date format on Military History articles is day month year and not month day, year. MisterBee1966 (talk) 17:33, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

April 2010[edit]

Information.svg Please do not replace Wikipedia pages with blank content, as you did to the page Max Kloß. Blank pages can confuse readers, and are overall not helpful to the Wikipedia project; furthermore, blanking a page is not the same as deleting it.

If the article you blanked is a duplicate of another article, please redirect it to an appropriate existing page. If the page has been vandalized, please revert it to the last legitimate revision. If you feel that the content of a page is inappropriate, please replace it with appropriate content. If you believe there is no hope for the page, please use the appropriate deletion process.

My apologies, I thought it was a deliberate page blank. QueenCake (talk) 16:12, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Friedrich Mieth[edit]

Dear Jake! Thank you very much for your kind answer! There are many fotos of Friedrich Mieth, my grand father, but I would have to scan them (I personally don't posses a scanner, but I could find somebody who would help). First of all some strange details about his death: There are two official dates of his death: August,29th 1944 as well as Sept.2nd 1944. But there is no explication to this phenomenon ( you'll also find on internet the two dates). He was buried by his ordely but the Soviets found his corpse and broadcasted it on radio. Some relatives heard it in Germany and informed his wife. Then, on Sept. 2nd, 1944 Hitler informed about his death. I rather believe in the first date as it's more likely. When the US Forces came to Wiesbaden, where his widow and daughter used to live, they immediately told the widow that she shouldn't fear anything because the US Army knew who he was (= a member of the German Resistance). As I'm born about 20 years after my grand father death, I don't know all the facts exactly but there are many documents left and my grandmother (his wife) and my mother (his only daughter) told me many details. So, please ask me, I'll try to answer whatever it is with the intention to leave a historically correct image of my grand father. He was forced to become a military by his father because he would have prefered to become either a violinist (he was an excellent musician, there are programs of his concerts left) or a professor for ancient languages. Well, these aren't informations, you'ld need for wikipedia, so please ask me! Kind regards, Angelika-DithaAngelika-Ditha (talk) 20:46, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

Have a look at google books here Retreat to the Reich: The German Defeat in France, 1944 Von Samuel W. Mitcham, Jr.. I has some info on Mieth. MisterBee1966 (talk) 10:07, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

Wehrmachtbericht[edit]

I am travelling all week. I will try to address your needs either this weekend or early next week. Sorry I can't do it any sooner. MisterBee1966 (talk) 19:07, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

I added the respective texts from the Wehrmachtbericht. I still have to translate three of them. Hope this helps. Good luck. MisterBee1966 (talk) 08:34, 12 June 2010 (UTC)

Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross in talk pages[edit]

Hi. I noticed that you add the image of Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross in various talk pages. Can you point me to a relevant discussion on that? Is this done for a long time? -- Magioladitis (talk) 09:54, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Goltz[edit]

Note that the German abbreviation d.R. stands for der Reserve or "of the Reserves". I was surprised that you changed this. MisterBee1966 (talk) 20:49, 13 October 2010 (UTC)

z.V. stands for zur Verwendung which could be translated as "for disposition" or "for deployment" it denotes an officer who is currently without a job or command but still on active duty. MisterBee1966 (talk) 23:47, 15 October 2010 (UTC)


Thank you[edit]

Thank you for you suggestion, I have begun to go through all of my articles to change the link. DocYako (talk) 17:19, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

Reviews[edit]

I am looking for reviewers for List of Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves recipients (1942) and List of Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves recipients (1940–1941). Both articles had passed A-class earlier but are not attracting any reviewers for FLC review. Maybe you can have a look and provide some feedback. Thanks MisterBee1966 (talk) 14:10, 17 November 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for your feedback. The nomenclature question regarding the various units of the Wehrmacht have always been a concern to me too. The way I always wanted to address this is by adding a note to the "Role and unit" column stating something like this "For an explanation of the various unit nomenclature of the Wehrmancht see Organization of the Wehrmacht". This new article could then link in Organization of the Luftwaffe (1933–1945) as an example or just simply focus on the nomenclature of Luftwaffe, Heer, Kriegsmarine and Waffen-SS. Do you feel that this would address the issue? And yes I would like more pictures myself, but none with acceptable rational are available. MisterBee1966 (talk) 12:30, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
Knight's Cross Recipients of the Gebirgsjäger? Sounds like something for the future :-) Oak Leaves recipients are my first agenda item for now. I did start the article Nomenclature used by the Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS. You may want to have a look if this addresses the topic adequately. MisterBee1966 (talk) 08:47, 21 November 2010 (UTC)

Frohe Weihnachten[edit]

Thanks, glad to be back. I will add him. Feel free to add as well. MisterBee1966 (talk) 18:26, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Okay, I'm done for the day! The BW states that 711 KC recipients served in the BW. So some work left to identify them all. MisterBee1966 (talk) 19:12, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

Wolfram von Richthofen: Master of the German Air War[edit]

Hi Jake, very interesting. I don't have time for that book yet, so I was just going to make improvements with other stuff. If you would like to help with the early life, FWW and SWW stuff, that would be great. Also, personality traits and relationships with his men (he was brutal but respected) could be added. I think it could be a good article. I have not yet given much thought to how it should be set out. Any ideas? Dapi89 (talk) 15:36, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

I couldn't help it, I bought it. I won't be able to read it, as I've got too much to do over the next few weeks. Dapi89 (talk) 11:21, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
