Does anyone has infomation re the 11th Armored Group?
I am researching the end of war and brief occupation period in parts of Central Germany.
Base for my question is the Summary of Military Government Situation (1 June 1945), Headquarters 6th Armored Division, G-5 Section, where Capt Marcinkowski and Capt Willams, 11th Armd Grp, are listed. But it is hard to find any information re the 11th Armored Group during WWII. Commander (1943-1945) of the 11th Armored Group wasColonnel Charles Celvin Higgins, graduat from West Point, 1923. Last known HQ, 11th Armd Gp, in Central Germany was in Apolda, Thuringia (12 May 1945 - 2 July 45).
Any help is highly appreciated -- also if anyone can provide further information re the Military staff personnel that is mentioned there. Please take a look on the following URL:
