Erinnerungen an das Panzerregiment 4 und die Tigerabteilung 507 - Gebundenes Buch

Das Panzerregiment 4 und die schwere Panzerabteilung 507 an den Brennpunkten der Front 

This is the story of the heavy tank division 507. In the fall of 1943, in its core of experienced tank soldiers of the I. Division of Panzerregiment 4, which also report on their operations in the Polish, French and Russian campaign in this work, set up in the Vienna area and on equipped with Tiger tanks in Wezep training area, the department was first used in March 1944 in the Tarnopol Brody area. With the task as a fire brigade to stabilize the crumbling front line, she was instrumental in the rescue group of about 800 heavily wounded from the boiler of Brody involved in the battle group Friebe. Relocated to the middle section of the Eastern Front in June 1944, the division went to rest in the Zichenau area at the end of 1944 after the fierce battles over the Nears bridgeheads, in which they remained in constant use as a mobile reserve and reaction force.
In January 1945, the heavy armored division 507 of the 2nd Belarussian Front under Marshal Rokossowski was opposite, which sat in the wake of the Soviet offensive over the Narew. Despite massive hostile superiority, the Tigers of the 507 succeeded in the destruction of 136 enemy tanks during the first three days of combat. After the arduous retreat across the Vistula, the department relocated to the Sennelager near Paderborn in February 1945, where it was equipped with the Tiger II King Tiger. Already in March she went against troops parts of the 3rd US Armored Division Spearhead and inflicted this in the fighting at Paderborn sensitive losses. Resistance battles in the Harz followed in May 1945, finally, the cessation of hostilities in Czechoslovakia.
In the present chronicle the dramatic history of the Panzerregiment 4 and the heavy armored department 507 is reconstructed primarily on the basis of war diaries and experience reports of former members of the department. Whether commander, driver, shooter or radio operator - up close the reader experiences the combat missions from the perspective of the individual soldier. In addition to the relevant battle descriptions, however, the serene moments of the soldier's life as well as the experiences of camaraderie and captivity are not forgotten. Last but not least, the largely unpublished footage makes the chronicle of the 507 heavy tank department an authentic and unique piece of military history.
