    Hey, she'll have to learn to deal with Les sooner or later anyways, so why not start now ? ;)

    No disrespect Les, its just I know it takes some getting used to your tone for the 'newbies', but then you're also a splendid character, would certainly miss you if you werent here anymore :)

    Welcome, Heather, to this board.
    Why do You need to do research on this topic? Wittmann is covered well since years.
    Even in case I receive a lot of critzism for it:
    You may cut Wittmanns kill claims down by one third at least.
    Happens to everyone. Be careful if You engage claims without sources. Best is to doublecheck it with the loss lists, if avaiable.
    However, Wittmanns record still is outstanding.

    cheers,

    From this site:
    http://www.panzermuseum.com/index.php?option=com_docman&task=cat_view&gid=28&Itemid=58

    "This file contains SS-Hauptsturmf├╝hrer Michael Wittmann's personnel documents. While it is certainly not a complete record of his military service, it has a variety of interesting documents, including a set of maps detailing the battle at Villers-Bocage."

    I just put the images into a PDF, he has several useful documents on his site.

    ...then I hope You enjoi Your essay and have success with it.
    If You encounter problems with german sources, let us know,
    someone here on the board usually helps out.
    ...as long as they haven┬┤t to translate whole books...
