Hi, I'm looking for some sites that would have unit histories, uniforms, anecdotes, and other information on Gro▀deutchland. Specifically, I'm interested in the period 1942-3, when it was a motorized infantry division. I've checked Wikipedia and Feldgrau but they're a bit slim.

I'm building a 1/16 fig that I'm planning tp put into a Fall Blau setting, but I'd like to look up other ideas and absorb some background info on the unit and it's battles.

Can anyone help?

Thanks, Engin, but the first site is a re-enactment unit, and the second site doesn't work. If you come across anything else, let me know. I've already checked Wikipedia, and I've had a look on Google without much useful result. I'll keep searching. Thanks for the help.
