Nafziger Collection (Orders of Battle)

Recommended Posts

lostinspace

Might be of interest for some forum members. George Nafziger for many years sought out order of battle information and then published his research in a series of softcover books here in the U.S. He decided it was time to get out of the business (explained in the link below) and donated his entire collection to the U.S. Army's Combined Research Center, they are now on-line. I found this handy link that sorted them by time period so that you don't have to download the entire file (there doesn't seem to be an index on the Army site). http://www.alternatewars.com/CARL/Nafgizer_CARL.htm The Great War file has around 400 entries - most of the data is taken from the official histories of the various combatants.

Brilliant - thank you. Over the years I have picked up a number of these pdf's but to be able to get the whole WW1 collection in one hit is a godsend.

Thanks Dave, but all the credit should go to Mr. Nafziger, it's not often that an author who invests the kind of time and effort that he did in putting together all that information donates it to the public.

Regards,

Dave

(there doesn't seem to be an index on the Army site).

There is a Finding Aid on the Army site

The FIBIS Fibiwiki page British Army, section Locating a regiment

http://wiki.fibis.or...ting_a_regiment

has a section about The Nafziger Collection of Orders of Battle, including hints about searching the Finding Aid

I remember back in the 1990s buying printouts of various OOB from this collection via mail order. Good to see them online.

If anyone has bookmarked URLs from the  Nafziger Collection of Orders of Battle, they have all changed.

 

The Fibiwiki link above (post 4) from the page British Army is unchanged  https://wiki.fibis.org/w/British_Army#Locating_a_regiment

There is a link to the finding aid on the Fibiwiki page.

All the information about links in the finding aid has changed.

 

Cheers

Maureen
