Can somebody send me a link here on this?

I googled Kurland but since thats the German name I had trouble finding info on this in England. My German is alright but I still didn't find much on the topic. Any help would be wonderful. I was looking for info on dates units etc. to make realistic missions.

Also I thought the Russian seige of K√¬∂nigsburg in 1945 would be in this map? Or is this a completely different area?

Can this be of help?
Lists some of the original town names... altough very old... (1807) Might help you on googling further...

As you can see, K√¬∂nigsburg is here, but just off the Il2 map I guess...

Have Fun!

Thanks. Any links for some history maybe? Like Luftwaffe and VVS units that operated there?
