    There is a possibility only to look at archive info- maps and KIA-MIA, but not a list like a Wehrmacht-Lexikon
    first is a maps, orders of battle, find the award by name and find all the documents about the awarded: Общедоступный электронный банк документов 'Подвиг народа'
    This is archive data about the men who was counted as not returned for the duty- heavy wounded, MIA and KIA ОБД Мемориал Both required cirrilic keyboard support.

    Alt codes, here I come. It's funny how you can research an individual, but you can't research a unit. I can't think of any reason why the Soviets wouldn't have been able to do it.

    Thanks, Dimas!

    Some research information about Soviet units of WWII period is shared between a lot of Russian local websites dedicated for example some battles, towns, regions etc. What concrete units to research are you interesting in? You can also apply via PM.

    What I am specifically looking for is the forces that countered the German Strachwitz II and Strachwitz III operations. I am interested in what equipment the units had to face the Germans with and who their commanders were at the time of these two operations. If it exists, I would like to know where each unit was deployed.

    What were the dates of German Strachwitz II and Strachwitz III operations? I believe they were in August of 1944, but Soviet Narva operation was at the end of July, 1944...

    Strachwitz II was launched the morning of April 6th, 1944. It was on frozen ground and off road.
    Strachwitz III was launched at 0435 hours on the 19th of April after a thaw had turned the ground to mud. It continued through the 20th of April. Both operations were in the Krivasso Bridgehead SouthWest of Narva.
