This Guide is one of a series of finding aids describing the declassified seized German records deposited in the National Archives.
The series was initiated by the Microrilming Project of the Committee f or the Study of War Documents of the American Historical Association
in cooperation with the National Archives and the Department of the Army. With the termination of-the Microfilming Project in July 1963,
the National Archives assumed solas responsibility for the reproduction of records and the preparation of Guides.
This is one of a number of Guides projected to describe the records of the German Army field commands. These records are being
microfilmed in five groups: Records of Army Groups, Records of Annies, Records of Corps, Records of Divisions, and Occupation and Other
Records.
This Guide describes the contents of 25 microfilm rolls reproducing the records of Amee-Abteilungen A, Fretter-Pico, Grasser,
Kempf, Kieffel, Lanz, Narwa, and von Zangen. From the standpoint of authority and command, an armee-abteilung stood between a heeres-
gruppe and an armeeoberkommando.
The provenance to which the documents are attributed is the army headquarters that originally kept the file, although a large
proportion of the items had in fact been retired by the units to the Heeresarchiv Potsdam for permanent retention. There an accession
number was stamped or written on the cover, and it is by this numbering system that the folders were organized in the World War II
Records Division and its predecessor, the Departmental Records Branch of the Department of the Army. All xolders that had not gone
through the fieeresarchiv accessionirg process before capture or had never been retired to the Heeresarchiv were given folder numbers in
an extension of the Heeresarchiv system using numbers above 75000, but otherwise following the Potsdam pattern. Considerable informa-
tion on the fate of all German military records during World "War II, and especially on several fires with subsequent efforts to recon-
struct the files, may be found in the records of the Chef des Heeresarohivs in the German Army jiigh Command. (These records were
filmed in T-78, Rolls 1 - 38, and are described in Guide Nr. IE of this series.)
The descriptive material for the armee-abteilungen was prepared on cards and each card has been filmed before the folder it
describes. The cards for all folders on one roll of film are also filmed at the beginning of that roll. This Guide contains the
text of the cards*
A short unit history and an organization index by staff section (Abteilung) precede the file item listing for each annee-
abteilung. The unit history has also been filmed at the beginning of each roll of the unit's records.
The term "Roll" in the Guide refers to the sequence of the film. "1st Frame" gives the frame number of the first page of the
folder. The " Item No." is the identification symbol on the original folder. The " Item" provides (a) the abbreviation of the staff
section that originated the document, and (b) the title appearing on the document cover or other information providing a general idea
of the contents of the item.
The original records have been returned to the Federal Republic of Germany. The microfilms have been deposited as Microcopy
T-312 with, the. Exhibits and-Publications Division cf the National Archives, Washington, D.C. 20408.
Philip P. Brower served as Editor of the Gur.de. The descriptions were prepared by Anthony Grassl and Ruth Pantel
under the supervision of Donald Spencer. Mrs, Pantel also prepared the stencils.

Armee-Abteilung Fretter-Pico
Armee-Abteilung Fretter-Pico (Armee-Abt. F. P. ), named after its Commander, General der
Artillerie Maximilian Fretter-Pico/was activated in December 1942. It was subordinate
to Eeeresgruppe B from December 1942 to January 15, 1943 and to Heeresgruppe Don*
during the period January 16 - February 2, 1943. Subordinate units at that time were
the 298th and 304th Divisions, a portion of the XXII Corps, Gruppe Kreysing and some
Italian troops. Upon its establishment, Armee-Abteilung Fretter-Pico was ordered (a)
t support Gruppe Kreysing, still fighting at Millerowo, (b) to build up reserves at
the Don and (c) to assemble its two divisions at the Kamensk bridgehead near Voroshi-
lovgrad and with the assistance of Gruppe Kreysing to attack the rear flank of the
Russian forces which had broken through the Rumanian and Italian lines. In January,
however, orders were received to retreat to a new defense line, Donez-Derkuhl. On
February 2, 1943, the 304th Division and Gruppe Kreysing were transferred to Armee-
Abteilung Hollidt. The remnant of Annee-Abteilung Fretter-Pico may have been shifted
to the XXX Corps.

Armee-Abteilung Lanz - Kempf
About June 1942, when the Italian Eighth Army was transferred to the Russian front, a German
Liaison Staff with that Army (Deutsoher General beim Italienisohen AOK 8*) was established.
On February 1, 1943, the Deutsoher General became Armee-Abteilung Lanz, named after its
Commander, General d. Gebirgstruppen Hubert Karl Lanz. A.-A. Lanz Emission was to assist
in preventing an enoirelement of Heeresgruppe Don and to secure the Kharkov-Belgorod area.
Barely tforee weeks after its activation, A.-A. Lanz was renamed Armee-Abteilung Kempf with
General d. Panzertruppen Werner Franz Kempf as Commander. Tactically, A.-A. Kempf was sub-
ordinate to Heeresgruppe Sfld. It functioned as a supply headquarters. One of its initial
tasks was the reconstruction of facilities in Kharkcw. In March 1943, A.-A. Kempf
took over logistic support of Panzer AOK 4. Probably about August 15, 1943, A.-A. Kempf
was converted to Armeeoberkommando 8.**

On January 27, 1944, the LIV Armeekorps was renamed Gruppe Sponheimer. About a month later
(February 23, 1944), the name of the unit was changed to Armee-Gruppe Narwa. In turn, on
May 31, the -tirmee-Gruppe became Armee-Abteilung Narwa. On September 26, 1944 the fourth
change in name (Armee-Abteilung Grasser) took effect. Finally (October 28, 1944), A.-A.
Grasser was redesignated Armee-Abteilung Kieffel. This Armee-Abteilung was tactically
subordinate to Heeresgruppe Nord.* It was primarily engaged in withdrawal actions re-
treating from the Leningrad front to Narwa and then to Riga and ports on the -Western
Estonian coast. Commanding Generals were successively Otto Sponheimer, Johannes Friess-
ner, Anton Grasser and Philipp Kleffel.
