Need 6th army oob down to comp level

Recommended Posts

I've searched the forums and internet. I am beginning a campaign for an infantry company. I would like to name the company accurately (historically). I can get as far as this..

Army Group South

6th Army

44th Army Korps

297 Infantry Division

I need to get to the company level. The links from this site did not work.

www.feldgrau.com has info and references for 297 Infanterie Division


No OOB but the KC winners are from

Infantry Regiment 524 (renamed Gren Regiment probably late 42)

Infantry Regiment 523

Infantry Regiment 522

Each regiment probably had 3 battalions.

So it would be 1 (or 2, or 3) kompanie, I/522 or 5 (or 6, or 7) kompanie, II/522, etc. In each regiment, 1-3 companies were the line infantry companies of the first battalion. 4 was the heavy weapons company of the first battalion. 5-8 were the second battalion, 9-12 the third. There were additional companies for infantry guns and anti-tank, but those wouldn't come into your "path" designation.
