Historyfacts' Publications

After publication of the Michael Winninger's (St. Valentin, Austria) German Book Nibelungenwerk we arranged a professional translation by David Kosh. After that, and after serious technical problems that delayed the the publication several times, we finalized the book. The English language copy is available as OKH Toy Factory since mid january 2013. We are happy with the result.

Historyfacts provided some content to the production chapters of the book. These based on our research on the Mark IV Tank and its derivates, as well as on additional investigation on the production of Ferdinand and Jagdtiger.

We are now working on the German edition of Thomas Anderson's Vorwärts immer - Rückwärts nimmer, which will be published as "Sturmartillerie . Geschichte einer Waffengattung". Publishing is scheduled for June 2013. This is a three volume book:

Further are planned and in progress with Thomas Anderson:
Volume II: Attack
Volume III: Defence

Das Nibelungenwerk OKH Toy Factory Sturmartillerie

Historyfacts' Reseaches

Our work on the publications "Tank Production in the Thrid Reich", "Panzerkampfwagen IV" und "Panzerkampfwagen Panther" are ongoing with good progess. In doing so we must note, that the hugh amount of information available uses our resources to the limit - more than searching missing document could do. We are sure, that doing a good job in screening, sorting, selecting and evaluating will be to our readers advantage.

On the Panzerkampfwagen IV topic, we are working together with Wolfgang Zimmermann, he himself is supported by Notger Schlegtendal; Working on the Panzerkampfwagen Panther is done with Edi Eberl und Frank Koehler. This integration of expertise in teams assures a broad, diversified base of the work and will give us verified results!

Historyfacts' Archive Activities

Beside working in official archives and in company's archives, our own archive is a worthwile and always available document collection. During the last year we were, by trading and as a result of many talks, in the position to further improve our archive's content - in quantity and quality:

We have now more than 1700 publications covering our topics at hand.
The number of Microfilms at our own archive increased to more than 1200.
By working together with a researcher at NARA, we are getting new, never published photographs and selected documents, that couldn't be found in other areas.

Especially advantageous circumstances allows us, to visit and work in a never used company archive. We got arranged the date and are looking forward to visiting that company. We will tell you more about that when it's time to...

We are trading documents, photographs and microfilms with other authors and private persons. We'd like to heartfully thank all these persons and institutions for working together with us! If you happen to have access to documents, photos that you think of possibly being of interest for Historyfacts, please contact us - many thanks!

 


Obituary: Thomas L. Jentz

Following an extended illness endured with courage and patience, Tom Jentz passed away end of December 2012. With his passing we have lost a technical writer and author whose lifework is impossible to overestimate! First collaborating with Walter Spielberger and the artist and researcher Hilary Doyle, then subsequently continuing to work with Doyle alone, Tom authored a number of standard works on the German Armored Troops, and on selected individual German tanks and vehicles of WWII.  His doctrine was invariably that only documented facts should be published and all speculation excluded. These were the professional ethics he lived up to, creating in the process a comprehensive body of work with his own publication series "Panzer Tracts" – until poor health sadly denied him the opportunity of completing it entirely. Supported by a well-known author, Hilary Doyle will now continue and complete Tom’s work. 

I knew Tom as a constructively critical contemporary with strong personal views. In discussions with him about the subject we both so enjoyed, he expressed his opinions in an unequivocal manner – particularly when they differed from my own. Having the possibility to measure oneself verbally and as a fellow author with someone on a par in my own specialist field was an opportunity simply too good to miss. Those discussions were highly enriching and I will remember them for ever!

Dear Madam and Sir

Our previous period was burdened with very interersting publisher's work and our own historical researches, both with fine results:

  • Up to now we were provileged to publish four titles for external authors in German or/and English. We'd like to thank those authors for their reliance! This year we published Nibelungenwerk in German and "Vorwaerts immer - Rueckwaerts nimmer!" in English - the corresponding other language's editions will follow next year.
      
  • With our own historical research on the Panzerkampfwagen IV we were able to finish an important step: The production numbers of the three manufacturers are now available for our further work!
We are pleased to present you another newsletter now!

Vorwärts immer, Rückwärts nimmer

Panzerkampfwagen IV - aproach of our analysis

As earmaked in the beginning, we closed the research in the production- and acceptance numbers of the German Panzerkampfwagen IV and its derivates.

Why is that so important? Two reasons:
  • Assumed that a Tank Division was equipped with 50 vehicles of that type, it seems being obvious that having hundred more or less was important for the course of war - here we speach of historical relevant data.
     
  • It is important for researching the appearance of vehicles to know when a layout was replaced by its successor (and this relys directly on production orders and speed of manufacture). How else could the moment be fixed, when a feature was established? Documents alone are not sufficent, unfortunately - a deep understanding of the production process and its changes is benefical. Here of historical relevance is the moment when upgunning measures were available to the troop. 

As far it can be told now and here: In miscellaneous point we come to other conclusions, even others as the most reowned aothors, and we are inclined to stand by our results! How can we dare? We are the first authors that systematically follow a vehicles path from devlopment / planning then production / acceptance to the final delivery to the troops.

It may sound trivial setting store by the statement, that it is not likely getting more vehicles to the troop than were sent from the armament depot - not likely getting more verhicles delivered to the armament depots than being accepted - not likely having more vehicles accepted than produced? Dare to recalculate at other publications... Fact is, that the documents of the armament depots, of the armament office, of the armament commandos and inspections are available relatively complete, while the documents of the manufacturers have some gaps in their alignments. If one understands the process shown above as a continuum, it is possible to fill the gaps in the documents' chains. As a historian you are bound to not only quote documents but to rate and interpret them! And this we are doing - not fancy but with dilligence. And if finally all available documents don't contradict anymore, the production numbers of all involved manufacturers add up smothly, the needed interpolations were more than likely. To that an example (taken from a draft introduction to our publication under progress): 

The lost pilot-run series

There are several signs that indicate a pilot-run series existing, that is being hushed up in literature up to now.

  • It is not common with German armored vehicles, that the first series (Ausfuehrung A) is starting with a chassis number 80101 – though the cassis number batch 80001 – 80100 is missing in documents. There is one document mentioning chassis number 80000 [sic.].
     
  • Krupp-Gruson is known to have produced 13 tanks in 1937, the Ausf A in contrast starts with three in November to December 1937.
     
  • Documents show that Krupp-Gruson produced up to the end of its business year 30th September 1939 a total of 227 Panzerkampfwagen IV since the beginning. If summing up Ausf A (35 pc.), Ausf B (42 pc.), und Ausf C (140 pc., including chassis for bridge layer tanks), the result is a total of 217 vehicles, six of them accepted in October. Ausf D started in October 1939 , this also is documented – ten are missing.
     
  • The troop held 211 Vehicles at the outbreak of WWII; 197 at the Front troops, eleven at training and replacment untits and three with the armament depot. There are to be added the six not included chassis for bridge layer tanks that were held by WaPruef - totalizing at 217 vehicles per 1.9.1939. If we'd add the six Ausf C accepted in October we arrive at 223 vehicles - From that point of view too it is not sufficent to add  Ausf A bis C only to come at the documented 227 vehicles.
     
  • There are troop reports that indicate the number of vehicles held by the troop at time. It is an interesting fact, that the totalized production / acceptance numbers seem to be lower than the troop held vehicles. Ausf A bis C are not nicht enough to give reason tor the troops' holdings:
    Report date

    period production / acceptance to
    the end of the prior month

    Total  Troop held number  Difference
     1.1.1938  3  3  3  +-0
     1.4.1938  21  24  30  -3
     1.7.1938  19  43  46  -3
     1.10.1938  27  70  76  -6
     1.3.1939  71  141  137  +4
     1.9.1939  70  211  211  +-0

These five evidences lead to our conclusion, that a pre-series run of ten vehicles must have taken place, chassis number batch 80001 – 80100, most likely with chassis numbers 80001 – 80010. Missing the pilot-run series in relevant documents alone is not sufficent to abnegate its existence, if - on the other hand -  combining all known documents strongly suggest its presence.

Using new methodic approaches, taking new paths only might lead to new knowledge - thats our persuasion and that's what we do consequently to the benefit of our readers. By nature it is not our aim to getting other results as other authors - in the majority of cases our findings are the same as published in current literature - but our ambition is to come as near to thruth as possible nowadays. Where our deep researches bring up justified differences, we shall present them to our readers for further discussion.


A wish

Closing that newsletter, we would like to inform you about a concern of us:

Historyfacts is working hard in assembling information and writing books - a most serious research is always our aim. For that we need documents, photographs, plans, maps, magazines, company's newspapers and so on.

Your are interested in our topics and some of you do collect historical materials, photographs and documents of the World War I and II era.

If you happen to be a collector yourself or you'd know somebody as described, we would ask you to arrange a contact. Of particular interest are currently information on the Panzerkampwagen IV and its derivates.

Our heartful thanks for thinking about us!

Vorwärts immer, rückwärts nimmer! [Forward ever, rearward never]
An illustrated Guide to History and Fate of the German Assault Artillery in WW II

The Sturmartillerie was extablished before outbreak of WW II as an integrative support arm of the infantry, which was far way from thorough mobility. Sturmgeschuetze - assault guns - turretless tanks armed with a 7,5 cm gun - should push forward the attack breaking any enemy resistance, destroying infantry guns, MG nests and bunkers. In the further course of the war the young service branch would have to stand the impetus of ever growing numbers of enemy tanks. 

This book is the first of a series. Its purpose is to introduce this small, but remarkable service arm to the reader. Development and combat of of the first units in battery - scale and the later Sturmgeschütz battalions resp. brigades will be explained by photos, diagrams and colored artwork. The author turned his attention to the identification of Sturmartillerie units, markings and characteristics will be clarified wherever possible.

During his research the author relied only on sources found in German archives. Subjective recollections of veterans have been used to illustrate the nature of this service arm.

Volume II: Attack

You up there - We down here
Schoolboys deployed as Anti-Aircraft Gun Assistant

In 1944, school classes were entirely deployed as anti-aircraft gun assistants to support the heavy Flak. These very young men were drilled at the 88-mm-Flak gun to support the soldiers of the Wehrmacht battling the allied bomber streams against Greater Germany. The missed school lessons were placed between fighting and training sessions, to complete the school's requirements. The experiences of the teen-agers, their non-political attitude and their courage of innocence are understandable very clearly. The author was one of the boys, that were deployed near St. Valentin, Austria, to protect the local tank works, the biggest of the Reich. He tells his experiences aptly and touchingly and places them in a bigger surrounding. He speaks also about hiding himself in Spring 1945 not to follow the contingent to join the Wehrmacht. A very impressive contemporary witness! 

The author bases on its own diary that he wrote during the employment and on past war researches in Austrian and US archives. His personally affected reporting shows, how teenagers underwent the Second World War and their own mission and how they dodged with the incidents.

Tank production in the Third Reich
From Conceptions to Deliveries

This study is progressed quite far, but needs some time for beeing finished. It will cover the whole process of tank devlopment, production planning and manufacturing up to te moment when the ordnance office takes over the tanks. It'll deal with questions of production logistics as well as with the question of raw material supply. So it can be used a a knowledge base for understanding tank production in Germany during that period as well for understanding armament processes themselves.

The "Plaything-Factory"
History of the Nibelungen Tank Works in St. Valentin

The village St. Valentin, situated in the western part of Niederoesterreich was a growing and in the end very important armament production center in the Third Reich. The Nibelungenwerk was planned as the hughest and most modern tank production factory with big housing facilities for workers, this under the camouflage name "Plaything-Factory". Altough the building was hindered by many wartime restrictions, the Nibelungenwerk, during his production time 1941-1945, grow to the most important manufacturer of Panzerkampfwagen IV (German main battle tank). Nowadays in the remaining part of the Nibelungenwerk tractors are built.

Michael Winninger from St. Valentin is occupied since his childhood with this topic. He was grown closest to the former Nibelungen works and some of his family members were working in that factory. The author was able, based on some 1200 historic photographs from the town's and Stey-Daimler-Puch's Archives and private collections as well with documents, to finalise a chronical history of the Nibelungenwerk at war.

His book shall give the readers very deep views inside of constructing the factory and of its production. Starting with a part about the planning and constructing of the factory and residental aera it shows then the poor working conditions, the producing of armament materials (mainly tanks mark IV) and finally the air raids against the works and the end of the war in St. Valentin. Underlined is the story with many never published photographs and documents.

Research Panzerkampfwagen IV and its Variants

The basis for this new publication is drafted. Basically we start with the idea of three volumes:

Panzerkampfwagen IV, Volume 1: History
Panzerkampfwagen IV, Volume 2: Visual Appearance Battle Tank
Panzerkampfwagen IV, Volume 3: Visual Appearance Variants

The three Volumes will be developed more or less simultaneously, since the topics and the research results have an influence on each other.

The basic concept is identical to the two volumes Sturmgeschütz III: Volume 1 History / Volume 2: Visual Appearance.

Should the nearby question arise: No, we do not have yet a publication date! However you will be the first to be informed about this.

Your valued Support
Should you possess pictures, documents, files, reports regarding the Panzerkampfwagen IV and you would be willing to share such information with us (for research and/or publication), please mail us, thank you!

Invitation to our readers

Müller History Facts is constantly interested in taking over stocks of documents and fotographs as well as collections of books regarding our research topics which may be a valuable addition to our souces.

Instead of just destroying such stocks or ship them to large Archives, where new items will just be stored for a couple of years before they eventually will be discovered for research: You may just ship your stock to our end for research and publication. In this case your stock will really be researched and the public will take advantage of it. You will allways have the decision regarding where your stock has to be stored after our research will be done. Should you have a stock to distribute, or know somebody in such a situation, we would be happy to get your information!
