LwOCS 2020

We would like to announce the early release of the 2020 edition of the Luftwafffe Officer Careers Summaries on the Michael Holms website: www.ww2.dk. This is the ninth released version.

This contains information for a total of 80,021 officers, including 10,118 improved write-ups, and 5,202 "new" and 269 deletions.

The other big change is that the entire compilation was re-sorted and should have far fewer such errors.

As always, we owe a debt of gratitude to the many individuals (listed in the Introduction) who contributed data to this never ending project.

Doug and Larry,

Many thanks for providing this.

With the "lock-down" many of us will have plenty of time to read this.

All the very best and stay safe

To Larry and Doug,

In a sea of change, it's nice to be reminded of something that just keeps getting better. Thank you for your ongoing research, and for sharing it so generously.

The change log is very handy, and it's a real testament to your diligence.

Best regards,
Leon Venter

Hi,

Indeed as it is said elsewhere magnificent work of sharing. Just be careful not to press the "Print" button: 1000 pages each time...

Again thanks,

Bertrand
