CHAPTER II. ORGANIZATION OF THE FIELD FORCES
Section I. OVER-ALL FIELD ORGANIZATION
The High Command frameworks below the Army High Command are the Army Groups (Heeresgruppenkonimandos) that are formed for particular campaigns to control two to four Armies in a single Theater of Operations, or in an important and more or less self-contained sector under such a theater. Since 1941 the total number of army groups has been between four and twelve.
The chart on page 3 shows the variations in the number of Armies (Armeeoberkommandos) per army group, of corps per army and of divisions per corps.
