It's very easy to recreate the carreers of historical officers by modding the txt-files in the folder campaigns.

I created the following examples which follow the actual missions of 3 german commanders:

For german officers, this is the most comprehensive source - but in german only:
http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/

The best english sites I've found so far are http://www.generals.dk/ and http://www.ordersofbattle.com/

I think it would be better to do it by units.

You mean the famous Marshal Georgyi Zhukov. This campaign is about Grigorij Zhukov. :wink:

My mistake. I thought that I can force the program not to create any more battles after 21 may 1940 by adding

Code: Select all

21/MAY/1940,
because this officer retired after this date. Unfortunately this doesn't work... :?
