Order of battle battles West of Budapest december 1944

Post by valentine III » 17 Feb 2022 11:42

Hi,

I'm interested in the battles west of Budapest to encircle the city during the second half of December 1944. The Soviets sent 46 army reinforced by 2 Guards Mechanised corps and 18 Tanc Korps to breach open the axis lines between lake Balence and Budapest. As far as I know the Axis lines were defended by 271VGD, and some hungarian units (1st Hussar ?)... backed by the armoured Battalion (10) of the 8 panzer Division (full?), an SPW mounted armoured infantry batt from the same 8 Pz., 219 Sturmpanzer Abt. and at least part of I/130 panther Abt.

I'f someone have a detailed order of battle I would be grateful to know .

Thanks

Eduard
