HI! and LOOKING FOR ORIGINAL GERMAN TEXT

Post  YogahofYag on Tue Dec 15, 2009 9:10 pm

Greetings, all!
I've been wargaming for about 10 years now and studying the reprint of the Kriegsspiel rules by TFL.

Over the past two-three years I've been looking for the original rules in German, and even went so far as to contact Bill Leeson, but I was only told that the text is available in the British Library.

No US library collection apparently has it, and I even contacted a German military archive for information, but they told me they did not have it.

Does anyone know where I may locate the original German text for von Reisswitz's Kriegsspiel?

Thanks in advance.

My information from Bill is that he obtained his copy from the Militargeschichtliches Forschungamtes, Freiburg, Germany. He subsequently donated a photocopy to the National Army Museum Library, Chelsea, London.

Sorry. It looks as if the British Library reference was misleading.

Best regards & good luck

Thanks for the reply.
I had contacted the military archive in Freiburg am Breisgau a year or two previously. Their reply was that they did not have it. No
