This is the capture of most of the confidential archives of the German Government and Army from 1933 to 1945. Hitherto the archives of a great state, even when it was defeated in war and its government overthrown by revolution, as happened to Germany and Russia in 1918, were preserved by it, and only those documents which served the interests of the subsequent ruling regime were ultimately published. It was Hitler's boast that the Third Reich would last a thousand years. Instead it lasted only twelve. But into its short life was packed the most cataclysmic series of events that Western Civilization has ever known. Reichland, in any way is not seeking to promote or support the National Socialists and other political parties. Its contents only wish to let the world know what has been written down in History. Particularly on the German Wehrmacht and the Eastern Front. Also, Reichland claims no property of any photographs posted and are in no way taken from other Blogs(unless reblogged). All photographs were taken from separate sources considered to be public domains.
A heavily camouflaged Sd.Kfz.251 halftrack has halted behind a building, using it as cover whilst a Panzergrenadier can be seen moving forward into action. The performance of the Panzergrenadiers in battle was mainly attributed to the Sd.Kfz.251 transporting these infantry units on to the battlefield. However, in Stalingrad these vehicles were prone to attack and many were lost in the urbanized fighting.
