Hello to all :D; more follows...............

The 2. Gebirgsdivision (2 GD) in Poland - 1939.

Case White - Polish campaign in September 1939.

At 21:30 hours the Commander of the 1 GD, General Kübler ordered the cancellation of the attack and take defensive positions. Shortly after midnight, he ordered the hand over of the positions to the Red Army and then begin the march toward Janow. On September 21, 1939 between 05:00 and 11:00 hours the German mountain troops crossed the positions of the 7 ID. Likewise also began the withdrawal of the 2 GD.

According to previous diplomatic agreements it was outlined a new demarcation line in Poland and the Germans retired peacefully behind the river San. In Ostrow, sector of Przemysl, we cover guard along the banks of the San and again we were faced with Russian troops. The Soviets shot people displaced so we assume the custody thereof. During the time we were in Ostrow had occasion to visit the old fortified positions of the WWI.

Hello to all :D; last part...............

The 2. Gebirgsdivision (2 GD) in Poland - 1939.

Case White - Polish campaign in September 1939.

In mid-October, 1939 again we received the marching order. During the night the units began a silent march. Our goal the city of Krakow. Once there we were loaded onto railroad cars and wondered where we will march to this time. We followed carefully the stations during the travel... Prague, Karlsbad, Nuremberg. The journey continued west on Frankfurt and Koblenz, and finally we went down in Kochern a/ Mosel and that very day we continue towards Mesenich where we got accommodation among the population.

Hello to all :D; a little more.................

Night fighting by Grodek 1939.

"The company assumes a formation with fronts In all directions. The enemy perceives that we are in a bad Situation. Every man remains at his post, animated by an lron will. A Polish combat train goes by us at a gallop. We deliberately open fire. One of our men of his own accord ventures a little ahead. Suddenly two Poles with bicycles appear. He leaps at the throat of one of them; the other flees.

We start off. We have the task of making our way to Grodek over the highway.

"About 1.45 AM, we get as far as the village of Bratkowice. A few minutes halt is ordered. Suddenly, we are fired on from every side. We are in a very serious situation. All you can hear is the singing of bullets, the reports of Polish machine-gun pistols, and the explosion of grenades. We instantly drop to the ground. Our mules are crazy with fear and trample on the men who are on the ground. Our mules abandon us, this time".

"In the darkness it is impossible to distinguish between friend and enemy. That is why we employ the hand grenade and the pistol only in short range combat. In a short time we manage to break our way out and retreat, still fighting".

"We arrive at the west edge of Grodek about 4:00 AM on the morning of 16 September, sorely tested by the trying events of the night".
