Here's a good resource for basic Soviet and German platoon level TOEs:

Soviet:

Panzer Grenadiers:
http://www.avalanchepress.com/BehindCounters.php

Typical Soviet platoon is 3x squads of 10 men each - Squad leader with SMG, Asst Squad Ldr (rifle or SMG), LMG gunner, Asst Gunner with rifle, 6x Riflemen. If its a Tank Rider unit or Assault unit you'd have more SMGs. The platoon command unit will likely have a platoon leader, senior NCO, a medic, possibly a sniper, and several runners.

The German squad is similar in composition. Support weapons may be available such as AT weapons, MMG or HMG, etc.
Play the game, not the players!

Thanks John. That is exactly what I was after for the infantry squads. I will have a look around that site to see if there is any more info on scout/recon squads.

Reagrds,
Paul.

Thanks, I have added those figures to the list. I'm maintaining this list at my blog:

I'm only linking to main homepages as opposed to specific catalog listings since the mainpage link is less likely to go 404.
