Sturm-Brigade SüdostAbel Ravasz wrote:Hi,
I'm looking for information about the so-called Sturm-Brigade Südost that shows up in the OKW OoB for 30/4/45 under LXIX. AK, HGr E. Any info including composition, commander etc is welcome.
Is there any connection between this unit and the so-called Division(sgruppe) zbV Fischer?
Seems that the two units were not the same after all.Dieter Zinke wrote:This unit was built out of "Kampfgruppe Engelbrecht"
(established out of the german Ausbildungs-Bataillone bei der kroatischen Wehrmacht; 3. and 4. kroatische Jäger-Brigade and kroat. Gebirgs-Brigade).
1945 Heerestruppe in Kroatien
Fp.-Nr. 02873, 04450, 05173 and 07571

According to Schmidt-Richberg (Der Endkampf auf dem Balkan, p.117 ) this Brigade "went over to the newly formed KG Fischer" on 27 March 1945.

Well, did this Kampfgruppe Engelbrecht have any connections with General der Artillerie Erwin Engelbrecht?
