Re: Battle at Mokra,Poland

Yep, it's from Schäufler, pp.15-22.
Thanks Richard for confirming it.

Then I would like to see the post-war version - just to compare one with another :wink: .

Do you know where it is possible to get it?

Re: Ruszki & Kiernozia Poland 1939 - Panzers crushed by infantry

Hi Klaus_Arzt, Thanks very much for comment :wink: btw do you happen to have any info on the Battle of Szack? Yes - I have some info on it - what do you need :wink: ?

Re: Battle at Mokra,Poland

I think it is one of those accounts you mentioned - however - I'm not shure which one. The one which was written after the war was over, or the one which is in Schaufler book (most probably it is the second one). Anyway - I didn't use the book by Schaufler. One of users of the Polish WW2 forum on wh...

Re: German Army 1st september 1939

It seems that both Sudau and Krawutschke were not the commanders of the regiment in period 1st of September - 12th of September 1939. Sudau was most probably the commander of I./IR.44 battalion, and on 12th of September he replaced the previous "mysterious commander" of the regiment. There was some ...

The same tank after transporting it to Sochaczew (it was staying there at least untill winter of 1939 / 1940):

Sochaczew - Towarowa street - to be more accurate.

Re: Battle at Mokra,Poland

Wołyńska Cavalry Brigade eliminated around 80 - 90 German tanks during the battle of Mokra, more than 20 of them - most probably around 25 - 30 of them (including 14 in Panzer-Regiment 35. - according to Oberstleutnant Eberbach) - were "Totalshaden". I don't have any exact data about casualties of P...
