Does anyone know if a war diary exists for 5. Panzer-Division, or any of their associated units, particularly covering the period they took part in the Greek campaign? Have any books been published on their history?

Jeff,

A quick check on Amazon shows only a Kindle book. Even though the title read Panzer the description reads Infantry. Who knows?

https://www.amazon.com/Panzer-Division- ... r-Division

If you read German there is what looks like a real book.

https://www.amazon.de/5-Panzer-Division ... r-Division

Hope this helps.

Hello Jeff
In the Invenio online database of the Bundesarchiv I can see that for the Fuehrungsabteilung (Ia) the Kriegstagebuch Nr. 5 (1. Jan. - 6. Apr. 1941) exists but the KTB Nr. 6 which covers the Greek campaign is missing … the next one available at the Bundesarchiv Freiburg is KTB Nr. 7 (18. Juni - 10. Sept. 1941). Sorry

Thanks for that. Pity about the price of the book, it would have been an interesting read.
