Hello to all :D; more: Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 (mot.).
With respect to Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 (mot.), It had been organized on October 12, 1937 in the military training grounds of Altengrabow, in the Military District (Wehrkreis) XI. The detachment was created with parties from Beo-Abteilungen 18, 31 and 32. After completing its organization, the Detachment was relocated to Calbe, in Military District XI. The detachment was initially subordinate to the 13th Infantry Division.
The Beobachtungs Abteilung 13 consisted of 573 men. His task was to determine the location of enemy artillery positions. The topographic battery carried out the organization of the terrain with angle measuring instruments (theodolite) before the sound recognition could locate the sources of the explosion. The flash measurement points recorded the flash of enemy weapons. Together, this data was used to determine the location of the opponent's weapons.

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

Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 (mot.).

In June 1939, maneuvers were carried out at the Wildflecken Military Training Area. Unlike previous years, this time real ammunition was used. The 13. Infanterie-Division (mot.) (Generalleutnant Paul Otto) was mobilized for the Poland Campaign on August 19, 1939 and after several days to gather all its elements, on August 22, 1939 the unit moved to the Jüterbog Military Training Area (Truppenübungsplatz Jüterbog). There followed two days of combat training.

On August 25, the division was transported to the Brieg area, awaiting the subsequent orders and the beginning of hostilities. The division was subordinated to the XIV. Armeekorps (mot.) (General der Infanterie Gustav von Weitersheim), operating within the framework of the 10. Armee (General der Artillerie Walter von Reichenau), part of the Heeresgruppe Süd (Generaloberst Gerd von Rundstedt). The IR 93 and IR 66 moved to their readiness area in Liegnitz. IR 33 occupied its readiness area in Goldberg. The Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 (Mot) as part of the 13th Infantry Division, moved towards the Polish border Via Jüterbog, in the Berlin area, and Breslau. However, on the same day (25) at 22:00 hours counter-orders arrived ordering to return to the Karlsmarkt / Mangschütz / Brieg area.

Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 (mot.).

The Invasion of Poland 1939.

At the beginning of the hostilities, on September 1, 1939, the division was initially held in reserve by the 10. Army and still remained in the Brieg area. However, as of September 2, the division was ordered to advance and only on September 3, 1939 came the order to advance against Poland. The 13. ID (Mot) crossed the border. Effectively the XIV. AK (Mot) with the 13. ID (Mot.) and the 29. ID (Mot.) advanced from the Kreuzberg area in Upper Silesia, against the Warta River. On September 3, 1939 the 13. ID reached Belchatow. The Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 has not yet been used here since Polish artillery had not been felt.

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

Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 (mot.).

The Invasion of Poland 1939.

After crossing the German-Polish border, the B.-Abt 13 crossed Wieluń on September 3. In the comment, Seeliger claimed that civilians had attacked the soldiers and that the city had to be destroyed. Historically, this is not correct.

Wieluń was attacked by the German Luftwaffe early on the morning of the first day of the war, although it was not defended and was not a relevant military target. The Luftwaffe was probably worried about demonstrating its effectiveness and demoralizing the population. The apartment buildings and the hospital were destroyed. The fleeing civilians were machine-gunned from the aircraft. It is said that up to 1,200 people were killed and about 75 percent of the city was destroyed. This attack is considered the first German war crime.

The 13th Infantry Division (Mot) seized the town of Osjaków on September 3. Its population fled from German troops. On September 4, the XIV. AK (Mot) was deployed against a Polish position in the Widawka and participated in the attacks to force the crossing of the river and formed bridgeheads across it.

Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 (mot.).

The Invasion of Poland 1939.

On September 5, the 13. Division was involved in the first intense struggles in Szczerców. In difficult terrain with swamps and areas of dense forests, there were hard fighting with losses for both sides.

In the afternoon the division was set in a high alert level. It was reported that the Poles made their way in front of our (German) lines in Szczerców. The anti-aircraft weapons (Flak) were used to the right and to the left of the road to Szczerców and we put our machine guns in position. The Poles had settled well in the swamp area east of Szczerców, so that the advance stopped for two days. On September 5, 1939, a Polish officer stood in the church tower and directed the artillery fire against the batteries of divisions 13 and 31. He was only recognized when he himself with his machine gun fired at the positions of the battery at night and caused confusion there.

Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 (mot.).

The Invasion of Poland 1939.

According to air reconnaissance reports, the enemy seemed to withdraw behind the Vistula. The task of the 10. Army will be to destroy the enemy forces west of the Vistula. Because of this, the army had to reorganize. Before the advance of the nucleus of the 10. Army over Petrikau and Kielce, the Polish units left their positions on the night of September 5/6, clearing the road to the northeast. The XIV AK (Mot) was ordered to march towards Radom. The 1. Light Division has to move south, crossing the march route of the 13. Infantry Division (Mot) that also crossed the Widawka. the 13. ID (Mot) Moves to Radomsko.

On September 6, the city of Szczerców was a pile of rubble. The 13. ID (Mot) was relieved by other troops and received a new order, it was to march from Szcercow south to Brzeźnica and east through Radomsko to Przedbórz.

On September 6, the Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 drove from Szczerców to Przedbórz. The entire 13. Infantry Division (Mot) was on the move with around 16,445 men. The High Command of the Army had assigned a new area of ​​operations about 100 km south of the city of Łódź. The roads were clogged with soldiers, military transports and refugees, which caused delays.

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

Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 (mot.).

The Invasion of Poland 1939.

On September 7, 1939, the enemy withdrew eastward and resisted in the area of ​​Lysa Gora. On this day the II./ IR 93 fell into an ambush prepared for a Polish mounted detachment of machine guns in Zarski. The motorized battalion suffered great losses. The Battalion Commander, Oberstleutnant Dippel, died in action. His successor, Maj. Schmarke, also died as a soldier. Oberstleutnant Knabe took over the battalion.

In Ochotnik, a friendly town near Przedbórz that had never seen a friend or foe, the soldiers of the Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 were able to clean themselves thoroughly under the rising sun. The farmers were friendly, so for the first time the morning wash could be carried out without security. The men fell asleep in, on or under the vehicles or in the tent, if the situation allowed.

Then the march continued through the destroyed town of Fałków. On a dusty road to Konski. At night, the Vistula was still should be reached 60 km south of Warsaw. A strong Polish resistance had to break in front of Konski. The anti-tank detachment (Panzerabwehr-Abteilung 13) arrived in the afternoon. The localization for air pressure and sound battery was also employed. We remained on the march route. The objective was not achieved because, apart from the fight in Konski, two bridges blown by the Poles stopped the advance.

Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 (mot.).

The Invasion of Poland 1939.

On September 8, 1939, the 10. Army is chasing the enemy and reaches with its right wing (XIV. and XV. AK) the area Zwolen - Radom. In the Radom area, the enemy forces (approximately two divisions) were cut on two sides. The XIV AK (mot.) captured Konskie and meets the enemy rear guards in Opoczno. Attacks withdrawing enemy forces in Radom.

While the same day at the Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13, two Polish ambush shooters were captured and taken to the market square in Drzewica. Shortly after, a noncommissioned officer was shot in the knee behind the church. Since the shot came from the sacristy, the pastor was arrested and, when he had to search the parish and the church with us tried to push a soldier on the stair in the tower and was killed.

Meanwhile, the population has been gathered in the marketplace because German soldiers were shot again. The women screamed, complained and prayed, but nobody supposedly knew who had shot. Only after they were threatened to shoot everyone, some were pointed out as snipers (a young man and two adults).

Just behind Drzewica the Detachment was stopped again. There were violent shots in the forest in front of Zakosciole. The ambushed Polish shooters (snipers) let the I. / IR 93 pass and attacked the II. Battalion, which suffered significant casualties. At night a mass grave was prepared at the edge of the forest for the fallen of the 93. During the funeral, three Poles slipped away and tried to throw grenades. They were discovered and neutralized from the beginning. From September 8 to 12, 1939, the IR 93 participated in the Battle of Radom.

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

Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 (mot.).

The Invasion of Poland 1939.

On September 9, 1939, the 10. Army is moving towards the Vistula to destroy the remaining enemy forces. Polish forces tried to escape Radom's pocket with strong attacks against the XV. AK and the XIV. AK. It is believed that encircled enemy forces are the Polish divisions: 13., 19., 29., 23., 12., 26. and Wołyńska Cavalry Brigade. The 13. ID (Mot) is attacking north of Opoczno. The XIV AK (Mot) arrived with parts to the bridges over the Vistula in Deblin and Kozienice. This closed the German ring around the Polish units in Radom. On the same day, the Polish formations were taken prisoner. After the fight in Radom, the Corps cleared the area and then formed bridgeheads through the central Vistula in Deblin and Pulawy.

The Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 marched from Drzewica to Zakościele. On the night of September 8 to 9, fighting broke out with Polish cavalry in the woods around the town. The battery lay on the edge of the town at night and was alarmed twice by wild shots that rang from the nearby edge of the forest. The guards thought they saw the Polish cavalry. The night passed without incident again. The next morning (September 9, 1939), the town was very quiet. There was a dead Pole in the ditch and another in front of the barn.

The march on Warsaw was canceled for parts of the division. Our Infantry Regiments 33 and 66 arrived in Warsaw yesterday. We are deployed in Radom with the rest of the division [sic]. The sun burns relentlessly and the dust is deposited mostly as a scab. The advance went very slowly through Odrzyvol, Klwov, Przytyk, Jedlin. In the morning we march through the cleared Radom towards Kozienice. As there were shots from all directions, nobody knew what was in front and behind. The night (September 9-10, 1939) came again, with no light in the thick dust. The roads were impassable, nothing could be seen, everyone was driving blindly in the direction of the vehicle in front of them, which was buzzing. Woe to the vehicle that broke down. The eyes burned with dust and tension. When the sun came up, armored sections in the forest reached us in front of Slezki.

Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 (mot.).

The Invasion of Poland 1939.

On September 13, 1939, the advance to Pulawy continued. Advancing behind the 1. leichte Division, the spearhead elements of the 13. I.D. (Mot.) managed to reach the Vistula River at the height of Pulawy by September 13, 1939. While the bulk of the division remained behind the security provided by the river, carrying out cleaning operations in the forests around Radom, the AA 13 was released and directed to Lublin.

That day the Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 bivouac in the village of Leokadiow (German ethnicity) - between Radom and Pulawy on the Vistula - here they were well received by the German-speaking population. Hens, geese, butter and eggs were so cheap that there was even no problem paying double the price so as not to harm people.

Before the war, more than 750,000 Polish citizens of German origin lived in Poland. These "Volksdeutsche" formed a heterogeneous minority in the Polish state. The majority welcomed the invasion of the Wehrmacht. Some founded the "Volksdeutsche Selbstschutz", a Nazi paramilitary organization.

The Invasion of Poland 1939.

On September 17, 1939, as part of the 10. German Army the XIV. AK (Mot.) surrounded the enemy forces that were defending the area south of Kosienice to avoid its withdrawal to the south. The 46. ID and 13. ID (Mot) cleared the area northeast of Radom against the strong local resistance of the remnants of the Polish units. Two groups of Soviet armies crossed the Polish border. The Skole - Stryj - Lemberg - Brest - Bialystok - Grajewo line must not be crossed by German units.

That day the Beobachtungs-Abteilung 13 established a bivouac in the town of Wilczowola. Since Polish airplanes no longer constituted a threat, German soldiers were able to set up the camp completely undisturbed without any danger.
