A fair few months ago now, I was sent a collection of resource files compiled by some Johannesburg-based Flames of War gamers: J.C von Winterbach, Scott Sutherland, Mike Bersiks, Rex Barret, Andre Wessels and Wayne Turner, together with contributions by the local military historian, Lt. Col. William Marshall. They very kindly gave me permission to publish their resources here. Apologies for the delay in getting these up onto the blog, gents, and thanks for the generous contribution to this blog. Much appreciated.
These are the resources relevant to the South African 6th Armoured Division:
J.C von Winterbach, Lt. Col. William Marshall & Wayne Turner
J.C von Winterbach, Scott Sutherland, Mike Bersiks, Rex Barret
J.C von Winterbach, Lt. Col. William Marshall, Scott Sutherland & Rex Barret
They have also begun work on similar documents covering the history of the 1st & 2nd South African Infantry Division (1940-43), so we can look forward to more of these invaluable resources.
Additionally, they have prepared this document concerning the war against Japan from a South African perspective:
