2021 edition Officer Careers

We would like to announce the release of the 2021 edition of the Luftwaffe Officers Career Summaries located as usual the Michael Holm web site at: www.2.dk.
This year we have
Total number of officers: 82,637, this leaving some 50,000 officers missing entirely
rhese include since April 1st 2020:
Improved officer write-ups: 8056
Including "new" officers: 2631.
Deletions: 132.

While this is nor record breaking, it does contain more interesting and obscure changes.

We must especially thank:
Markus Richter for his manycorrections and additions
Andrew Arthy for his copious contributions of data.

Enjoy!

Larry Dezeng,
Doug Stankey

Re: 2021 edition Officer Careers

Thanks Doug, this is such an epic feat and so useful too. I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed leafing through one of my Flugbuch and finding out what happened to some of the aircrew listed in there. I’ve got some more information on Heinrich Brems and Gunther Kauschke I’d be happy to share with you guys for the next update from researching their Flugbucher. Is the best place to send it through the website?
