24th February 2022 - an update
pl For a change, some 'literature' (overdue) - which today relates, somewhat, to the current grim developments, that is, the Russian invasion of Ukraine: the 'literature' here is two folders of the German, WW2 documents, which we received from Peter K. Clark, who passed away recently. The materials, marked as „Geheim!”, were prepared by the German engineering unit, Wehrgeologenstelle 16, and describe terrain and cross-country conditions alongside the rivers of Dniepr and Bug. It was the line, behind the German armies retreated in 1943/44.
Folders are available as pdfs. Because some maps are very large, the longest is over 2 m. long, and scanned at 600 dpi, the larger of the two pdf files is over 800 Mb. Therefore it takes patience to download, open and zoom in to see map details in those pdf files. For your convenience, the files are also available in smaller, more compact version, at 150 Mb and 80 Mb accordingly. Naturally, to read the manuscripts, you need to understand German. Page numbering is often dual and often contradictory, some pages might be missing, but all available ones have been scanned in the order they appear in the folders.
The files can be downloaded from the „Literature” page (approx. 3/4 down the page), where we have also included some sections of the British assessment inside the folders.
Also, several 1:50,000 maps and one 1:100 000 map have also been made available via Mapster index sheets.
