I'm looking for reference material naming the regimental commanders at the start of OP Fall Weiss.

Hopefully, there is a book out there detailing who had command of all of the german regiments through out the war.

Thank you all for the help. If anyone is following here is another one I found.

20th Div. 76th Motorized Infantry Regiment – Col. Gollnik

Ouh that will be a hard one. I start this topic at polish WW2 forum here http://www.dws.org.pl/viewtopic.php?p=240030#240030 and I got some answers. There is little but "is". This is in Polish so I try (as good as i can) to translate:

1 Mountain Diwision :

- 98 Mountain Reigiment - oberst (colonel) Schorner (later he became feldmarschal)

- 99 Mountain Regiment - Oberst (colonel) Kress

- 100 Mountain Regiment - Oberst (colonel) Utz

29 Mechanized Division :

- 15 Motorized Infantry Regiment - Oberst von Goedel

- 71 Motorized Infantry Regiment - ???

28 Infantry Division :

- 49 Infantry Regiment - oberst von Altrock

- 83 Infantry Regiment - oberst Rotkirch

3 Leichte Division :

- 9 Cavalry Regiment - oberst von Ditfurth (KIA during night 8/9 september 1939 at village Pilatka nearby Ilza, when polish forces make they way through german lines to reach Vistula river.

Thats all for now - small but always some. Stay tuned, this isn't so easy to gather info.

Here some info. Yes I know it is not the regimental organisation but might help you.

The German Panzer forces during Fall Weiß

The total force involved in the attack was 40 infantry divisions (of which 5 were motorized), 11 Panzer divisions (of which 5 were light divisions), 6 mountain divisions and 3 independant brigades. The total number of Panzers in Fall Weiß were

Pz.Kpfw.I: 993

Pz.Kpfw.II: 1,107

Pz.Kpfw.III: 87

Pz.Kpfw.35(t): 112

Pz.Kpfw.38(t): 55

Pz.Kpfw.IV: 192

kl.Bef.Pz.Wg.: 119

Bef.Pz.35(t): 8

Bef.Pz.38(t): 2

Total: 2,675

which meant that of Germany's battle tanks involved in Fall weiß, almost 80 % were obsolete, even when compared to the few tanks Poland had.
