Which Georgian units were stationed along Normandy during Operation Overlord? I need to find out which battalions participated in the opening days of the invasion. Their unit number and location would be most helpful. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

If you have not already done it I would suggest a post on the Axis Forum.

Ok, not a list, but a map - this is the dispositions of OstTruppen units in France 6/6/44.

You would probably have to double check, but it looks like the Goergien units are marked...

The only ones I have ever looked at in detail are those on Guernsey and the unit that rebelled on Texcel, other than that, I've never tried to study Georgien troops.

Hope this helps!
