  1. Video or it didn't happen. Hint: buttoned up untrained tank crews don't see much.
  2. McMaster University has the best/most usable collection. These publications from the war explain how the maps were made, how accurate they were, how they should be used (i.e. 1:100,000 scale maps were recommended for use by armored units), if they were available, plans to produce more/future availability, etc. For example, topo lines in Germany were interpreted from hatch marks on German maps from the 1930s so were good for approximation and strategic planning, but were not precise.

  3. Thanks for the lead Warts. Found it: http://community.battlefront.com/topic/55227-new-cmbo-scenario-bitche-bulge/ Still, an interesting enough forgotten event--a lost battalion that was not saved but actually lost--that I would help a scenario designer resurrect Reipertswiller from CMBO to the CMFB platform.
  4. Sorry to be so so late to this thread. I'm an old CMx1 hand that fell behind the technology curve about the same time I ramped up on the baby curve. But CMFB might get me back. For gebirgsjaeger historic scenarios I'd recommend a designer look at the Battle of Reipertswiller, Jan 14-20 1945 during the Nordwind Operation. It's a lesser known battle where the 6th SS Mountain Division (newly arrived from the Arctic Circle front in Finland) decimated and captured one battalion plus attached companies of the 45th Infantry Division. My friend's grandfather was captured in the battle. In a nutshell,
  5. I think those are only the links of the treads. They still need the shoes.
  6. It was nice of Diesel Taylor to post the map of the 607th TD battalion that I created. It's been a while since I made it. Other cool items related to the 607th are this flickr set of photos taken by a man in a recon platoon. http://www.flickr.com/photos/scdike/sets/72157622433126355/ And also a link to the entire battalion's daily log: http://www.tankdestroyer.net/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=202:607th-tank-destroyer-battalion&catid=43:battalions600s&Itemid=101
