according Russian sources the Romanians had 6500 KIA and 2000 WIA.
(till 29th August 1944 some German vessels passed the fortress unattacked!)
-> On 31st August 1944, Kampfgruppe Zieb passed the Fortress CALAFAT(km 795) in heaviest fightings; again large losses on Romanian side.
-> From 03rd September 1944 till 07th September 1944 Kampfgruppe Stelter (all Artillerie-Träger and Marine-Fähr-Prahmen) tried four times to break through the so-called EISERNE TOR(km 0907 - km 0915).
All in vain.
So all remaining vessels were sunk till 20th September 1944.

Kampfgruppen

Post by Rudi S. » 10 Jun 2004 03:40

May I mention 4 more Kampfgruppen with which I am familiar:
1. Kampfgruppe Pohlmann (Early 1943)
2. KG Böhrend (Narva front - February to May 1944)
3. KG von Werthern (July -Sept 1944 - Lithuania)
4. KG Remer (27 Nov. 1944 - ?; Battle of the Bulge)

The four above where part of the Grossdeutschland/Führer Begleit Bn. (or later Regt., Div., Brigade).
I participated in the 2nd and 3rd battle activities. During the B of the B, I was stationed behind the frontlines (in Prüm), still recuperating from my wounds received from a direct hit of my Stug by a Stalin II 122 mmm grenade.

My interview is on:
