Question about 100. and 101. Leichte Infanterie-Division

Post by kp3opk » 10 Mar 2006 14:56

Hello sirs!

(I am sorry for a level of my English language.)

I research (for myself) сombat operations of the parties(sides) in second half of July 1941 in the south of the USSR. I have faced a unsoluble problem for me.
It is very necessary will familiarize with the exact text from 2 German books about 100 and 101 Leichte Infanterie divisions, particularly with their maintenance (contents) where the period 17.07.41 - 21.07.41 is described (or min c 18-20.07.41, or min minimorum 19.07.41).

At me access to these German books is rather inconvenient and combined.

Books:
1) Mit Tanne und Eichenlaub. Kriegschronik der 100. Jäger-Division, vormals 100. leichte infanterie Division
Hanns Neidhardt, Stocker-Verlag, 1981, 468 pages

2) Die 101. Jäger-Division in Dokumenten, Bildern und Berichten
Willi Weinmann, TraditionsVerband - Soziales Hilfswerk 101. Jäger-Div. e.V., 1966, 656 pages

Whether someone can, from members of the forum, having access to these books to scan the necessary pages or to give the exact text ? Especially under the book about 100 L.Infant.Division.

It is mine last hope! :)

I ask to excuse me for this not absolutely correct request.

It is natural, that I shall take part with gratitude the information or Internet-references about routes and operations 100 and 101 L.Infant. Divisions for the period 15-22.07.41.

PS: I Shall make everything, that I can, if to me will address with the similar request under Russian and Soviet books accessible to me about IIWW.

Please contact me by PM.

Best regards, Anatoly.

Hi Anatoly

I am moving this to another section where it is more likely that you may get a quick answer. Also, you may want to change your email in the post, otherwise your account maybe flooded with spam, because it gets picked up by robots trawling websites.

All the best

101 jaegerdivision

Post by 101 jaeger » 28 May 2006 12:05

the book of the 101 jaegerdivision shows the following information about the period you have adressed:
verfolgung bis zum ssod (from the 16th july until 24.july)

it was 3 divisions fighting: 100 jaeger, 257 I.D.

group linde (I.R. 299) and extra units (A.R.863) started to chase the enemy from the line they have reached after the fightings from the 16th july. the enemy in the westarea of kijanowka has retreated due to artillery fire of group linde.
group püchler (I.R.228) and extra units (III./A.R.111) one unit of Entgiftungsabteilung 102 and a 35-cm Mörser attached a line of bunkers and after heavy fighting reached marjanowka (at 22:00) (32 bunkers destroyed).

i think you were especially asking for information about tanks units involved. it was Sturmbatterie 2./245 involved in the evening of the 17th. it is too much text to write here for the followinig days. on the 20.th july there was also panzerjäger-abteilung 525 which was covering the flancs in the south against tank attacks.

is that what you were looking for ?

i can post information out of the divisionshistory of the 100 jaeger later, because i have given this book to a frind - but asked him to give it back
so see you later !

The 100. Infantry division was constituted in the shade of the imminent campaign against Russia with the denomination of "light infantry division". This type of division was organized from the four original ones, in order to fight in a difficult land, or in high ground, low mountain or in certain marshy zones. These divisions to a certain extent constituted an average term between the mountain infantry divisions and the infantry divisions "normal". A total of 11 light divisions (leichte) later denominated of hunters (jäger) were deployed in the southern sector of the Eastern Front, in Crimea, the Caucasus, the Carpathians and the Balkan Mountains. The 100 Infantry division was the unique Division of Hunters that fought and perished in Stalingrad.

In order to organize it, two thirds of its strenght came from Austria and the remaining third of the High Silesia, although later all the German regions were represented in it (including Alsace).

The divisional symbol of the 100. Le. ID (later Jägerdivision)

The combination of the letter "S" with the symbol of the fir-tree (german: Tanne) is an encoding of the name of the first divisional commander Werner Sanne.

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

AA100, Rittmeister Hans-Günther Braun v. Stumm.

On Jul 24 of 1941 at dawn, when the 100 Le. ID started to cross the Bug River and pressed on far due east, the AA 100 together with the AA 101 were counterattacked in Ladyshin. At first, the Russian went forwards only , however later increased the force of the attack. The mass of the division marched off at 06:30 hours loosely deployed.

One hour later began to rain in such a way that the advance was very difficult. At least there was not enemy resistance and the IR 54 reached Jarmolince around 10:00 hours. There it got in contact with the neighbour to its left , the I.R. 419 belonging to the 125 ID.

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

AA100, Rittmeister Hans-Günther Braun v. Stumm.

But the attacks against the vanguard had strengthened, hence the I./ IR 54 reinforced with a battery of light howitzers was sent from Charpatschka in order to help the advanced troops. In the meantime, the neighbour to the left, the 125 ID, had taken the small town of Gaissin located upward on the Bug River.

Around noon the Russian attacked Ladyshin also from the northeast and the situation of both detachments (abteilungen) slowly became more and more difficult. Finally began the attack carried out by the 101. le. ID south of the Bug River, also approached the 1./54 and brought some relieve. The engagements on this day porceeded in good way as for the messages radioed by the AA 100 to the Division:

Hello to all :D; the end...............

AA100, Rittmeister Hans-Günther Braun v. Stumm.

Before nightfall the 1./ IR 54 formed a small bridgehead over the Ssob, however in the course of the evening was replaced there by one company of the 101 Le. ID and marched after a short rest back to its regiment located at Jarmolince.

Due to his actions in the fights over Ladyshin and particularly for the conquer of Gaiworon on July 29 1941, which as should be shown later, was one of the basic conditions for the victorious ending of the battle around Uman, Rittmeister Braun v. Stumm was decorated posthumely with the Knight’s Cross on 20 July 1942.

Heavily wounded in the fights by Gaiworon, he did not know about the award because fell during his transfer into a homeland military hospital when the sanitary airplane went down on September 15 of 1941.

To "tigre":

Hello, Tigre. I understand that you have information about fighting of 100 leichte I.D.. I am interested in its activities during the period from August 29 to September 12, 1941, namely the "operation Schinken" - a ferry across the Dnieper and the fighting in the bridgehead

Best regards, Andy.
