Panzer Lehr Division in Saar Region, November 1944

Post by jlchacon » Sat Jan 21, 2017 12:00 pm

I am doing some research on the Panzer Lehr Division attack in the Saare region into the Saverne Gap, 23 - 26 November 1944.

Does anyone have any information on the employment of the Division's Panzeraufklärungs-Lehr-Abteilung 130 during this battle? None of the sources I've found, including the NARA FMS D-322 and ETHINT-67 by Bayerlein, mention the Reconnaissance Battalion.

I am also looking at confirmation on the number and types of tanks used by the Division during this battle. Conflicting reports are making it difficult for me to have confidence in the number and type of tanks used.

I am waiting for copy of Helmut Ritgen's Die Geschichte der Panzer-Lehr-Di​vision im Westen: 1944-1945 but if anyone has any further information on this period, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

Joe

Thank you, Prosper.

Those links are good for an overview of the battle. I also like: http://efour4ever.com/44thdivision/schalbach.htm for an American view.

Unfortunately, I am looking for deeper level of detail specifically if the Panzeraufklärungs-Lehr-Abteilung 130 was deployed during the attack.
