The German Replacement Army (Ersatzheer)

The replacement system operated by the German Army tried to ensure that reinforcements were not only trained for their role in battle, but had geographical commonality with the units they were going to. Thus men from Prussia were not usually sent to divisions or regiments raised in Bavaria. This study is a comprehensive and detailed look at the system, how it worked, and where it was based. Of importance to all students of the German Army, and should be read in conjunction with TME 30-451 Handbook of German Armed Forces (also reprinted by MLRS).
