Hello to all ; more follows...............
The 2. Gebirgsdivision (2 GD) in Poland - 1939.
Case White - Polish campaign in September 1939.
At 21:30 hours the Commander of the 1 GD, General Kübler ordered the cancellation of the attack and take defensive positions. Shortly after midnight, he ordered the hand over of the positions to the Red Army and then begin the march toward Janow. On September 21, 1939 between 05:00 and 11:00 hours the German mountain troops crossed the positions of the 7 ID. Likewise also began the withdrawal of the 2 GD.
According to previous diplomatic agreements it was outlined a new demarcation line in Poland and the Germans retired peacefully behind the river San. In Ostrow, sector of Przemysl, we cover guard along the banks of the San and again we were faced with Russian troops. The Soviets shot people displaced so we assume the custody thereof. During the time we were in Ostrow had occasion to visit the old fortified positions of the WWI.
