Yet I prefer to go to my library and go through my originals...

 

I think that many of us would choose that option if we had the financial resources to get the relevant copies!;)

Copies? I'm into the originals... Still some some 200 to 300 are missing. I don't dare to think about how much money went into my library.

Copies of the original volumes is what I meant not photo-copies or the like - sorry if I confused you.

Hello!

A huge collection of regimental histories looks fine, of course, but they need a lot of place.

But... when do you look in those books? Sometimes, when you need an information. Do you read all the books? A lot of them a similar to the others.

I have the books, in which units my relatives served with and for me that´s enough.

To work with, for me it´s ok to have the pdf of them.

My approach to working with Roman inscriptions also, which not only take up a lot of space but tend to be somewhat heavy!;)

12. Batterie Fußartillerie-Regiment 13, it is only a typed copy and doesn‘t seem to have been published.

It was published as a typoscript, I have a copy myself.

Thanks for bringing this to the fore again. I have been idly looking through some of the material recently  for something else and it does look (A) like a cataloguers nightmare, and (b) a historians dream! I took at random some of these ones, e.g., shell expenditure at Verdun, and wow, what a lot of material there is to be used there! Well, many years ago I chose the Roman army for my Ph.D and later research - but boy oh boy, what a wealth of data for an inquiring researcher!

Thanks for posting Ken

 

Having a look at the website Den Store Krig 1914-1918 , I see there is a page Regimentshistorier

https://denstorekrig1914-1918.dk/listerlitteraturlinks/litteratur/regimentshistorier/

In addition to the volumes in post 36 above, there are histories in Danish and a couple in German which have links to histories

 

Reserve Infanterie Regiment Nr. 31 (RIR31)

 

Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 75 (RIR75). Under this regiment it says "eksternt link fra The Open Commons of Phenomenology" The link didn't appear to work, but I found  a new link from the mentioned website, catalogued as  Kriegstaten und Schicksale des Res.-Inf.-Regiments 75 Nach eigenen Erlebnissen und nach Erzählungen der Kameraden berichtet by Dietrich Mahnke

http://ophen.org/pub-101455

Elsewhere the title is given as "Reserve Infanterie Regiment 75 - Kriegstaten und Schicksale des Reserve Infanterie Regiments Nr. 75 1914/18"
