    You need to narrow it down a bit, as 16th Army existed throughout the war & it’s likely that many divisions passed through the OOB during that time..

    EG:

    http://3dhistory.co.uk/article/world-war-two/battle-of-france-order-of-battle

    16th Army:

    VII Corps: 36th Infantry Division, 68th Infantry Division
    XIII Corps :10th Infantry Division, 15th Infantry Division, 17th Infantry Division
    XXIII Corps: 26th Infantry Division, 34th Infantry Division, 58th Infantry Division,76th Infantry Division

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_battle_for_Operation_Barbarossa#German_Sixteenth_Army

    II Corps – General of Infantry Walter von Brockdorff-Ahlefeldt: 12th Infantry Division – Lt.Gen. Walther von Seydlitz-Kurzbach, 32nd Infantry Division – Lt.Gen. Wilhelm Bohnstedt, 121st Infantry Division – Lt.Gen. Otto Lancelle
    X Corps – General of Infantry Christian Hansen: 30th Infantry Division – Lt.Gen. Kurt von Tippelskirch, 126th Infantry Division – Lt.Gen. Paul Laux
    XXVIII Corps – General of Infantry Mauritz von Wiktorin: 122nd Infantry Division – Lt.Gen. Siegfried Macholz, 123rd Infantry Division – Lt.Gen. Walter Lichel

    As noted above, Army and Corps compositions weren’t static, with various different divisions and higher assets passing through them during the war. Any particular operation you are interested in?

    I was silly, my apologies.

    I am looking for between the Demyansk pocket and about a year afterwards (so from spring 42 to summer 43)

    However, turns out the wikipedia article covering Demyansk has a listing of divisions, at least for that moment.

    I have a listing of the 16th Army dated 21 July 1943, and then through to 20 December 1943, but nothing earlier.  Is the 21 July listing of any use to you?

    Less enthusiasm, please. This is Britain.

    Yeah, I think the July listing would be great for what I need, along with what was suggested up-thread. Thanks gang.

    This comes from “Russo-German War Summer-Autumn 1943” compiled by W. Victor Majeda.  Mr. Majeda seems to have an anti-communist agenda but the information and maps seem authentic and highly detailed.

     

    As of 21.7.43 the 16th Army was composed of;

    X Corps – 5 Jager, 30, 126 and 329 divisions

    VIII Corps – 32, 122 and 21LW divisions

    II Corps – 12, 93, 218 and 331 divisions

    Rear Area – 8 Jager division

     

    Less enthusiasm, please. This is Britain.
