Hello to all
; a little more............................
Towards the Dnieper 1941.
On June 30, 1941, the 18th Panzer Division (Generalmajor Nehring) reached, south of Minsk, the main road to Borisov on the Berezina. Because of the poor progress General Nehring decided to organize a vanguard whose task was to occupy the bridge over the Berezina and keep it until the Division's approach.
On July 1, 1941, the vanguard of the 18th Panzer Division (Generalmajor Nehring) under the command of Maj. Teege came against Borisov at noon. In the afternoon, the 10. Company seized the bridge over the Berezina suffering heavy losses in the action.
On July 2, 1941, the vanguard of the 2nd Armored Group (Generaloberst Guderian) reached the Dnieper in Rogachev.
On July 3, 1941, the 18th Panzer Division (Generalmajor Nehring) reported a battle with Soviet tanks of a completely new model. Traditional German antitank weapons, especially the gun 3.7cm Pak had no effect on this type of tank. At night, the Berezina was crossed for the third time between Borisov and Bobruisk, this time for the rifle regiments 69th and 86th of the 10. Panzer Division.
