New Finds

Volkssturm-Bataillon 27/84

https://www.forum-der-wehrmacht.de/inde ... lon-27-84/

Volkssturm-Bataillon Kalau vom Hofe [Kreis Oels, Reichsgau Niederschlesien]

The name Volkssturm Battalion Kalau vom Hofe is not historically secure and only serves to distinguish other Volkssturm units in the area at the time mentioned above.

The Rittmeister Eberhard Kalau vom Hofe was the head of the community and the last German mayor of the community Schwierse in the district of Oels / Silesia. At that time there was also a manor "Mittel" in the community, to which a manor owner Kalau vom Hofe is also mentioned: http: // www .gca.ch / ortschaften_… oels / schwierse / index.html

From his public office (in connection with a party membership / Ortgsruppenführer? And officer rank) the Rittmeister probably also became the leader of the VS battalion.

Volkssturm-Bataillon Schärding

Die fehlende infanteristische Kampfkraft sollte durch
drei Volkssturm-Bataillone, die VS-Bataillone Braunau, Obernberg und Schärding, ergänzt werden, welche die Gauleitung aus entbehrlichen alten Männern und Jugendlichen aus allen Kreisen des Gaues rekrutiert hatte.

The missing infantry combat strength should by three Volkssturm battalions, the VS battalions Braunau, Obernberg and Schärding,
were added, which the Gau leadership had recruited from dispensable old men and young people from all circles in the Gau.

In Ried, alarm units were continuously put together in the barracks from those who had been dispersed in train to company strength the section Schärding were fed. Nevertheless, only the two Volkssturm battalions were available to secure the bank areas between
Wernstein and Obernberg. Although one couldn't assume that these, due to a lack of appropriate armament and ammunition equipment,
the lack of infantry forces could replace. The command posts of the Volkssturm were in Schärding and in Obernberg, where it is at
News media were lacking. The battalion leaders of the Volkssturm had no connection at all to their company commanders and they
could get their in the impassable Inn floodplains, too hardly supply. Which of course was disastrous to the bad morals in the first place.

The leadership in the Braunau section was held by the Abteilungsstab of the Regimentsgruppe (Ers. u. Ausb.) 577 and intended for Braunau
heavy infantry battalion. Other command staffs were those of the Volkssturmbataillon Braunau and the Luftwaffe staff of the fixed schweren Flakabteilung 805. For the defense the city had three lines of defense planned and built. The outer line pulled away from Hagenau via St. Peter, Aching and Ranshofen to Inn. The middle position system ran over the Inn Dietfurt, Haselbach and Lech to Easter mountain.
The last inner line then formed the outskirts itself. Four companies were deployed to secure the Austrian bank between Ranshofen and
Kirchdorf. The Volkssturm was supposed to secure the area between Kirchdorf and Hagenau. But this was never the case and the weak and
barely armed Volkssturm battalions were certainly no substitute for the missing one Infantry.

------------------------------------------------------------
the Commander in Chief West and Southeast as well as the Army Groups Center and South transmitted. It said:
“A deployment of the previous Volkssturm against external enemy is not applicable with the exception of the Gaue Tirol / Vorarlberg, Styria and Carinthia ”

Although we don't know the details, the “Volkssturm command”, at least according to rumors, quickly have spread. This led to the Volksturm battalions in Braunau, Obernberg and Schärding, even before an American soldier set foot could set the Austrian bank, dissolve.
Therefore there is neither from the Allied nor from the German side a report in which reference is made to the activities of the Volkssturm in connection with the crossing of the Inn. The battle-weary men of the battalions had simply gone home, taken off their armbands,
and disposed of weapons and equipment.

The Volkssturm and the city of Cottbus

The region around Cottbus now had a decisive strategic relevance: in addition to its importance as a traffic junction, it was the last cornerstone of the defense of the troops east of Berlin to the south. Larger units were then relocated to the Cottbus area, especially to the villages of Dissenchen and Merzdorf, after two tank attacks took place near Kahren. In the city of Cottbus itself, which had been declared a „Festung“, no additional units were stationed. Therefore, the Festungskommandant of Cottbus, Generalleutnant Ralf Sodann, reported on the morning of April 19 that he could not defend the city without regular troops. He had only five poorly armed "Volkssturm-Bataillones at his disposal, which consisted mainly of (probably around 800) Hitler Youths and old men.

Volkssturms des Kreises Posen.

Some of the men drafted into the Volkssturm on January 17 and 18 were transported away in a north-easterly direction and were deployed
between Hohensalza and Thorn. The bulk of the Volkssturm-Bataillones, however, were moved 160 kilometers to the east via Konin and Warthbrücken (Kolo) to the Kutno area, 50 km north of Lodz, while other parts were deployed 100 kilometers south-east of Posen near Kalisch
and Ostrowo. One of the Volkssturm-Bataillon's that had been transported in the direction of Kutno was deployed at Eichstädt (Dabie) on January 18th and, according to reports from those returning home, "was almost completely wiped out." The towns of Kolo, Turek, 20 km southwest of
Kolo, Konin, Golina and Wreschen were involved in heavy fighting.

After losing battles between January 22nd and 26th, the Volkssturm-Bataillones deployed at Kalisch and Ostrowo fought over Lissa, 60 km south
from Posen to Glogau by January 29. The men of the Volkssturm, who had been pushed back into the Posen fortress via Konin and Wreschen, had
to retreat to the core plant by February 12 after bitter street fighting with the rest of the occupation, which was completely destroyed by the
heaviest bombing attacks On February 23rd Posen fell into the hands of the enemy. Numerous members of the Volkssturm in the Poznan District
have been missing since those battles.

Volkssturm Altenmarkt

Der Volkssturm soll später bewaffnet werden. Zum Volkssturm-Bataillon Altenmarkt gehören die Komp. Altenmarkt (mit 5 Zügen),
St. Georgen/Stein, Truchtlaching/Seebruck, Muna und am Anfang als 5. Kp. Traunwalchen/Matzing/Kammer; letztere wird nach 1/4 Jahr einem
neu gebildeten (2.) Volkssturm-Bataillon Traunstein zugeteilt. Batl.Führer: Oberndorfer Josef, Altenmarkt. Neben der militärischen
Ausbildung ist eine weitere Aufgabe der Ausbau und die Befestigung wichtiger Punkte, das Anlegen von Schützenlöchern, -graben, Panzersperren,
die Vorbereitung von Brückensprengungen.

Der Volkssturm unterstand der Partei und bekam seine Befehle vom Kreisstabführer (Major Mühlbauer in Traunstein). Ende März 1945 kommt als militärischer Berater und Verbindungsmann zum Militär ein Leutnant Uther vom Ers.Batl. Traunstein; dieser betreut neben dem Batl. Altenmarkt
auch die 2 Trostberg Volkssturm-Bataillon. Der Bau der Befestigungsanlagen wird nun mit aller Macht betrieben. Im April 1945 meldet sich auch ein Pionierfeldwebel bei mir, bestimmt Sprengungsart und Sprengstellen der einzelnen Brücken und berechnet die Größe der Sprengladung.
Die Lage wird immer ungemütlicher: Auf der einen Seite das unaufhörliche Vordringen der amerikanischen Massen, das langsame Zurückgehen der äußerst schwachen deutschen Front und das zermürbende Bombardement der deutschen Orte (auch in Traunstein und Trostberg fielen Bomben
und kosteten viele Todesopfer), auf der anderen Seite die Befehle der Partei, welche ein klares Beurteilen der tatsächlichen Lage vermissen
ließen. Daraus entwickelte sich der ungesunde Zustand: Die Befehle kamen von Traunstein zum Batl., von da gingen sie schriftlich weiter an
die Kompanien, wurden dann mündlich (manchmal ins Gegenteil) korrigiert.

Translation

The Volkssturm is said to be armed later. To Volkssturm-Bataillon Altenmarkt includes the Altenmarkt (with 5 Kompanies),
St. Georgen / Stein, Truchtlaching / Seebruck, Muna and at the beginning as the 5th Kompanie Traunwalchen / Matzing / Kammer; the latter becomes a newly formed (2nd) Traunstein Volkssturm-Bataillon after 1/4 year. allocated. Battalion leader: Oberndorfer Josef, Altenmarkt.
In addition to military training, another task is the expansion and fortification of important points, the creation of foxholes and trenches, anti-tank traps, and the preparation of bridge blasting.

The Volkssturm was subordinate to the party and received its orders from the Befehle vom Kreisstabführer (Major Mühlbauer in Traunstein). At the end of March 1945, a Lieutenant Uther from the First Battalion came as a military advisor and liaison to the military. Traunstein; in addition to the Volkssturm-Bataillon Altenmarkt also the 2 Volkssturm-Bataillon Trostberg. The construction of the fortifications is now being pursued with all vigor. In April 1945 a pioneer sergeant reports to me, determines the type and location of the individual bridges and calculates the size of the explosive charge. The situation is becoming more and more uncomfortable: on the one hand, the incessant advance of the American masses, the slow retreat of the extremely weak German front and the grueling bombardment of German places (bombs fell in Traunstein and Trostberg as well and cost many lives), on the other the orders of the party, which failed to make a clear assessment of the actual situation. This led to the unhealthy state of affairs: The orders came from Traunstein to the battalion, from there they were sent in writing to the companies, and were then corrected verbally (sometimes to the contrary).

Volkssturm-Bataillon Stünke“ bzw. „Panzerjagdbataillon Stünke“

Der anwesende Ortsgruppenleiter Müller informierte den Führer des Volkssturmbataillons von Tschopau, Ulbrich, der wiederum den
Kreisstabsführer informierte.

Die Ortsgruppe Constantin verfügte über ein Volkssturmbataillon mit drei Kompanien, von denen jedoch lediglich der 1. Zug der 3. Kompanie teilweise bewaffnet und in einer Schule kaserniert war

Ob ein Befehl des Ortsgruppenleiters und Führers des Volkssturmbataillons Soltau-Ost erging, „flüchtige KZ-Häftlinge“ und „alle umherstreifenden Häftlinge ohne weiteres zu erschießen“, konnte nach dem Krieg nicht nachgewiesen werden.

Ein zentraler Ausbildungsort für das Führungspersonal war die HJ-Akademie für Jugendführung in Braunschweig. Ende März/Anfang April 1945
wurden die rund 40 Teilnehmer und Lehrkräfte des letzten Lehrgangs in den Volkssturm eingereiht. Als Angehörige des III. Aufgebots bildeten sie
ein eigenes Hitlerjugend-Bataillon, dessen Kommando der Leiter der Akademie, HJ-Oberbannführer Heinrich Stünke, übernahm
und das in der Folge als „Bataillon Stünke“ bzw. „Panzerjagdbataillon Stünke“ firmierte. Zum Führer der drei Kompanien berief Stünke Lehrer
der Akademie, darunter den HJ-Bannführer Ulrich Giersberg, zu Zug- und Gruppenführern die Kursteilnehmer. Nach dem gleichen Modell wurde
aus einem Teil der Akademieangehörigen ein zweites HJ-Bataillon unter Führung des Braunschweiger HJBannführers Zachau aufgestellt. Die Mannschaften der beiden Verbände rekrutierten sich aus den lokalen Angehörigen der Hitlerjugend und den Lehrlingen der Volkswagenwerkstatt Braunschweig. Die Kompanie Giersberg wurde am 3.April gebildet. Von den 150 zugeteilten Hitlerjungen schickte der Kompanieführer zwei
Drittel unmittelbar wieder nach Hause. Die restlichen 50 Jungen wurden zu einer „Panzerjagdgruppe“ zusammengefasst, die jeweils zwei Akademieangehörigen als Gruppenführer und Stellvertreter unterstanden und mit einem leichten Maschinengewehr ausgestattet waren.

Der Kreisleiter und Trummler waren es auch, die für die nicht minder blutige Niederschlagung des Umsturzversuches in Burghausen sorgten.
Dort herrschte Unruhe unter den Arbeitern der Wackerwerke, weil das Gerücht umlief, die Betriebsanlagen sollten gesprengt werden.
Deshalb entschlossen sich eine Reihe von Werksangehörigen – allesamt alte Gegner des Regimes – nach der Radionachricht
der Freiheitsaktion Bayern aktiv zu werden. Sie brachen das Waffenlager des Volkssturmbataillons des Werkes auf und bewaffneten sich. Werksangehörige, die als Nationalsozialisten bekannt waren, wurden festgesetzt, darunter der Ortsgruppenleiter und der Führer des Volkssturmbataillons.

Translation

Volkssturm-Bataillon Stünke or " Panzerjagdbataillon Stünke "

The local group leader Müller who was present informed the leader of the Volkssturm battalion from Tschopau, Ulbrich, who in turn informed the
District staff leader informed.

The local group Constantin had a Volkssturm battalion with three companies, of which only the 1st platoon of the 3rd company was partially armed and barracked in a school

After the war, it was not possible to prove whether an order was issued by the local group leader and leader of the
Volkssturm-Bataillon Soltau-Ost to “shoot fugitive concentration camp prisoners” and “shoot all wandering prisoners without further ado”.

The HJ Academy for Youth Leadership in Braunschweig was a central training location for the management staff. Late March / early April 1945
the around 40 participants and teachers of the last course were assigned to the Volkssturm. As a member of the III. They formed a contingent
its own Hitler Youth battalion, the command of which was taken over by the head of the academy, HJ-Oberbannführer Heinrich Stünke
and which subsequently operated as the "Bataillon Stünke" or "Panzerjagdbataillon Stünke". Stünke appointed teachers to lead the three companies of the academy, including the Hitler Youth leader Ulrich Giersberg, to platoon and group leaders the course participants.

It was based on the same model A second HJ battalion was set up from some of the academy members under the leadership of the Braunschweig HJBannführer Zachau. The teams of the two associations were recruited from the local members of the Hitler Youth and the apprentices from the Volkswagen workshop in Braunschweig. The Giersberg company was formed on April 3rd. The company commander sent
two of the 150 Hitler Youths assigned Third immediately back home. The remaining 50 boys were combined into a "tank hunting group", each subordinate to two academy members as group leaders and deputies, and armed with a light machine gun.

The district leader and Trummler were also responsible for the no less bloody suppression of the attempted coup in Burghausen.
There was unrest among the workers of the Wackerwerke because the rumor was circulating that the plant was about to be blown up.
That is why a number of factory employees - all of them old opponents of the regime - decided after the radio news
to become active in the Bavarian Freedom Campaign. They broke open the arsenal of the Volkssturm battalion of the plant and armed
themselves. Workers who were known as National Socialists were arrested, including the local group leader and the leader of the Volkssturm battalion.
