Community / Why do Europeans think Americans are peasants?
« on: November 04, 2014, 02:58:50 am »
As we all know us Europeans think Americans are peasants and that they do not know how to play this game or act in civilized manners. And the yanks refuse to recognise europeans are their rightful overlords.

However, i'm in America right now, and it seems like they have sufficient housing, have other work than substistance farming and have restrooms.

Thus i am confused, what defines a peasant in modern times, and why has the NA community been brandished as peasants??

This regiment is the IE continuation of NW's 60th Royal American rifles. As so we will keep the same command, same traditions and same ideals in this regiment. In game we will mostly play as the German faction, most likely as ordinary riflemen.

History of the Regiment and the Alpenkorps

The Alpenkorps was the German responce to the French Chasseurs d'Alpins whom they had fought in the Vosges mountains in 1914. The elite French mountain troops made a staunch impression on the Germans as they had a very hard time disloging them from the high mountain peaks. Thus the Alpenkorps was formed; it was a division sized unit with 2 Brigades of 2 regiments each. The soldiers of the Alpenkorps were Bavarian mountaineers who had a lot of experience with mountaineering, and traditional Prussian Jagers who were masters of light infantry and small unit tactics. The Alpenkorps quickly gained a reputation of being an elite formation, and was considered by the allies to probably be the best division sized formation in the entire German army. Probably the most travelled formation as well, seeing action on all fronts in Europe.

The Dolomites

The Alpenkorps first saw action when the Italian Front opened with Italy's declaration of war. The Alpenkorps was still forming when it was rushed to the Dolomite mountains to aid the Austrian Kaiserschützen to hold the line against the Italians. The battles up in the high mountains were very demanding from the soldiers, supplies were always short and the enemy always present. Attacking up mountains proved fruitless to the Italians, who then resorted to placing explosives inside the mountains in an attempt to dislodge the brave Alpenjägers. After four months of fighting in the mountains, the Austrians were finally able to move enough troops into the front to hold the line by themselves, thus the Alpenkorps was sent to France. The Austrians granted the German soldiers the Edelweiss, a symbol still used today in the modern Gebirgsjäger.


After less than a week at the front in France, the Alpenkorps service was needed in the Balkans campaign against Serbia. The Alpenkorps and other German troops were sent to the Balkan front as a result of the frustrations of the German High Command. The Austrians were unable to defeat the Serbs, and the Germans desperately needed a rail link between them and the Ottomans to supply them with weapons and ammunition. The terrain in Serbia was suited for the German Alpenjägers, as it was mountainous and hard to traverse, but that posed no difficulty to the Germans as they were used to that type of terrain. With the entrance of Bulgaria in the war, and with the help of the Alpenkorps, the Austrians were finally able to defeat the Serbs.

The bloodbath at Verdun

After the Balkans campaign, the Alpenkorps was thrown into the meat-grinder at Verdun. The Alpenjägers were placed in the line around Fort Vaux, one of the bloodiest sections, where they were instantly pressed into bloody attacks onto French positions at Fleury and Souville. The exertions of the Alpenkorps can be seen in their casualty figures, as over 70% of the soldiers became wounded, missing or killed. The Alpenkorps left the line in July 1916 as it seized to exist as a combat efficient formation, it spent a month resting, refitting and reforming. The bloodied veterans of Verdun were easily recognisable next to the new replacements.

Fall of Romania

Romania decided to enter the war on the allied side in June 1916, the Alpenkorps was shifted to this new point of the Eastern Front in August. The Alpenkorps subsequently fought in the mountains of Transylvania and pushed their way to Bucharest. However during the offensive the Alpenkorps lost a great member, namely Prince Heinrich of Bavaria, however the Romanian campaign was a success. The Romanians only held Bessarabia and the longer front now put even more strain on the Russians who were forced to aid the Romanians. Peace between both nations was concluded at Brest-Litovsk in 1918, but the Alpenkorps had been dispatched to Italy already in July 1917.

Caporetto and the end of the Great War

The great Caporetto offensive was launched in the autumn of 1917, with Austrian and German soldiers pushing the Italians to a breaking point. The Germans and Austrians gained large swathes of terriotory until the offensive lost steam and was halted by the Italians. During the Caporetto offensive, two future Fieldmarshals would distinguish themselves; The famous Desert Fox Erwin Rommel and perhaps the lesser known Ferdinand Schörner.

After Caporetto the Alpenkorps was sent back to France to participate in the final offensive, Operation St. Micheal, better known as the Spring Offensive. It fought at Lys in April, but as the Germans were halted and forced back it fought at Picardy during the Allied Hundred Days offensive. The Great war ended November 11th, 1918.

The Mess Hall / Christmas presents
« on: December 15, 2013, 12:01:58 pm »
Alright, here's a little Christmas style game, since the 24th is less than 10 days away.

The guy above you will state one nice thing he did this year, and one naughty thing, and based off those two things you will write what you think is a suitable Christmas present for him. Then you'll write one nice thing, one naughty thing, and you can post more than once, but just make sure you mention different examples than in your other post. And erm, be nice.

I'll start, a nice thing i did this year was to buy a cheeseburger for a homeless guy. One naughty thing i did was call my teacher a cunt.

Historical Discussion / Why was the Wehrmacht so superior?
« on: December 02, 2013, 08:02:49 pm »
Thought we could get a little discussion going on here, and please leave eugenics out of this as it's irrelevant.

Personally i would say these reasons:
- Education and training: Let's face it, for an armed forces it's size the Wehrmacht was second to none in training and education of it's soldiers, pilots and sailors.

- Equipment: The Wehrmacht had a huge amount of top of the line equipment for most of the war, particularly post-1943 when they possesed the best weapons of all warring factions, ironically that was when they were losing. However in '39-'41 the German arsenals weren't really that top of the line regarding tanks and anti-tank weaponry. They did have a disadvantage in Luftwaffe since they weren't able to produce enough Fw-190s (later Me262s) and were stuck with Bf 109s for most of the war (Already 5 years on it's neck by 1940)

Motivation: The soldiers were disciplined, and motivated to fight. During the early years it was to avenge the Versailles Treaty and the injustices it had imposed upon Germany. In the later years  it was to protect the Fatherland from destruction, as many feared the Soviets would completly dismantle Germany if they won. This partially explains why 150 German divisions could withstand over 400 Soviet ones for 2 years against all odds.

Commanders: The Wehrmacht had lots of experienced and talented officers available, most of the senior ones had been officers already in WW1.

Doctrines: The combined arms, surprise and speed of German doctrines gave them a definite edge until the Allies learned how to counter it.

Or was the Wehrmacht really that much superior? Leave your responses, i'd be glad to hear your opinions.

Forum & Website / Just a question about rule 12
« on: November 28, 2013, 06:16:05 pm »
So, as long as we follow the rules of 86a STGB, we'll be fine or?

Because as some may know, it's still allowed to show imagery/mention previous items associated with Nazi Germany in a historical context, or one to show art etc according to 86a STGB.

Or is it a complete ban on all things related to Nazi Germany and to National Socialism on the forums in general?

Clans / Panzer-Division 'Frundsberg' (Re-apply please, roster was lost)
« on: November 22, 2013, 06:57:53 pm »

We are a group of friends who like WW2 games, we wish to represent 1. Battalion of Panzergrenadier Regiment 21 (1. Frundsberg) of the Panzer-Division 'Frundsberg'. Oh and dont forget to stop by our thread on the Festung Europa forum! And to be clear this is a continuation of the previous 10. **-Panzer-Division 'Frundsberg' as the old name breached forum policy and rules.

Our Steamgroup! Add the Sven guy to be added to it.


The Panzer Division Frundsberg was formed on January 2nd, 1943 with it's original title Karl der Große. This was however changed since French volunteers used the Charlemagne name already, thus the Division took on the name of a legend in German history, the famed Landsknechte Georg Von Frundsberg. The Division was originally formed from Reicharbeitsdienst conscripts, however they were lead by an experienced cadre of Leibstandarte veterans who made up the Regimental, Battalion and Company commanders. The 'Frundsberg' first saw action on the Eastern front, fighting the Soviets in the area of Tarnopol around April '44, and later participated in the succesful rescue operation to save German soldiers in the Kamenets-Podolsky pocket. During this time, the 'Frundsberg' was used as a mobile fire-brigade like many other SS units, jumping from threatened sector to another.

After the operations in Galicia, the 'Frundsberg' was shipped by rail to France, as the prospect of invasion was now becoming a reality. The division arrived at the front in Normandy on June 20, and was placed together with it's sister division, the 9th Panzer Division 'Hohenstaufen', in the II -Panzerkorps. It was placed in the line near Caen, with the 272. Infanterie-Division and the LSSAH on it's right, and the Panzer-Lehr and 9. SS PzD on it's left. The 'Frundsberg' did a great job of holding the line against the British forces during the battle of Caen, particularly during Operation Epsom, the division enjoyed close cooperation with the 'Hohenstaufen' division. The 10th held it's positions and launched local counter-attacks against the Commonwealth forces, and enjoyed several succeses, however the fighting to hold hill 112 had decimated the division. Allied soldiers enjoyed off-shore ship artillery, and overwhelming air-support during the entire operation, making the life of the Panzergrenadier very difficult. It was during these hard times that the 'Frundsberg' showed it's true colors as disciplined and professional soldiers, while other divisions like the 12th SS PzD and 2nd SS PzD massacred PoWs and civilians, the soldiers of the 10th were kind to their captives and treated the civilian population well. The Frundsberg is one of the few Waffen-SS divisions to not be accused of ANY war crimes.

A 10. SS Division cuff title, worn by all soldiers of the Division

The 10. SS and 9. SS where sent to Holland to refit after the exhausting Normandy campaign, where both units sustained heavy casualties. However, history has proved it wasn't a particularly long break, the Allied forces launched Operation Market Garden, the world's largest airborne assault. However this proved to be a fatal mistake on the part of the Allies, who expected to be met by only 'Old men and kids', instead they encountered two elite Waffen-SS divisions, who although were severely understrength and lacking armour, proved to be more than a match for the Red Devils and the US Paratroopers. The 9th and 10th SS Divisions encircled most of the 1st Airborne Division, and even though they put up a heroic resistance, were killed or captured to almost the last man, a few managed to escape however, and hid with the Dutch resistance. This proved to be one of the last major German victories of the war.

After the battles in Holland, the 'Frundsberg' got several months of rest and refitting in the Alsace region. The division did not partake in Unternehmen Wacht am Rhein, better known as the battle of the Bulge. The division was shipped out back to the Eastern front after the failed Operations Nordwind and Wacht am Rhein, to protect the fatherland from the Soviet invasion. During these battles in Pommerania and Silesia, the division was mauled to a fraction of it's original strength. When Berlin was surrounded and captured by the Soviets, which ended the war, the division managed to escape to Austria and surrender to the US forces, escaping emprisonment in the dreaded Soviet Gulags.

Check out this guys' channel, it is goddamn hilarious! NEEDS MOAR VIEWS


Can we just remove them? They are utterly pointless since:

A. Most of those mods who have these threads will never release.
B. You can take the name when the mod actually releases.
C. They clutter the board and all i see are these pointless threads instead of actual mods that are developing.

Now, some may counter argue that" Ermaghersh, but i can't be here all the time so when the mod release i might not be here and get the regiment i want!!!"

Tough luck son, first come first serve is how it should be. Not to mention that, that counter argument is highly individualised and is outweighed by the rest.

Now if you really, really want a pointless reservation thread, just dedicate the second post of the mod thread dedicated for reservations.
