Weidinger's 23 January 1943 report from Paris school for Panzer troops

    Weidinger attended this short course on tank tactics in Paris whilst he was an instructor at Brunswick (Braunschweig). It is interesting to compare this assessment with that for Adolf Diekmann, who attended the same course with Weidinger whilst he was an instructor at Bad Tölz.
