The 2. Gebirgsdivision (2 GD) in Poland - 1939.
Case White - Polish campaign in September 1939.
The status of the 1 GD, well ahead in relation to the main force of the 14 German Army, was very difficult. its only line of communication from Sambor to Chyrow was at stake. The nearest unit, the 2 GD, only left the area around Husakowa, making forced marches by Rudki, Lubień, and had to travel about 90 km, equivalent to 2-3 days of marching along rough roads. The XXII AK (Mot) of General E. von Kleist, seeking the conquest of Rawa Ruska, marched north and northeast: the 4 Le Div on Vladimir Volhynia, and 2 Pz to Zamosc.
The XVII AK fought by Oleszycami against the Polish 21 Infantry Division. General Kübler seeing that their units were scattered and significantly decreased the strength to stop the push of the Polish by Gródkiem Jagiellońskim organized battle groups "Zimmer", "Utz" and "Kress". Thus, the forces of the 1 GD fighting against Lviv were reduced to 5 battalions and four batteries of heavy artillery on the perimeter of 25 km around the city, with only a reserve battalion in Zimnej Wodzie.
