Guenther Luetzow's victories over Russia

Hi all, here is a work in progress listing of Luetzow's victories over Russia.
Main source is relevant TsAMO files via the allaces website (I acknowledge that the site also publishes material from Soviet era propaganda and do my best to avoid those entries) and some entries from the OBD memorial. If anyone can assist, I'd be grateful:
