    Where can I find information on the WWII German
    733rd Heavy Artillery Battalion? This unit fought at
    Stalingrad but I can't find anything in writing about
    them.
    Thanks,

    Been searching and haven't found a lot. There's a mention of the schwere Artillerie-Abteilung 733 (heavy Artillery Division) as part of IV. Armee-Korps in April 1940. Link:

    IV. Armee-Korps - Lexikon der Wehrmacht

    But besides that I cannot find anything else. Hopefully someone else here will have more information.

    Huck:
    Thank you very much for the information on the
    733d Heavy Artillery Batt. I knew they were destroyed
    at Stalingrad as I have a piece (marked) of equipment
    that was dug there. I will post this as a thread when
    I received it.
    Tks,
    Bob
