6th Panzer Division Glory: Volume 2 is the second volume of the
most exhaustive study extant on the vaunted
Wehrmacht’s 6th
Panzer Division
. 6th Panzer Division Glory: Volume 2 actually
understates the martial glory of the
6th Panzer Division in World
War II
. When these two volumes are read, the reader will realize that
the
6th Panzer Division was one of the few most glorious and
combat effective
panzer divisions that ever existed. Certainly no
American, British, French, Soviet, or Polish “armored” division ever
came close to either the effectiveness, experience, leadership,
lethality, courage, or glory of the
6th Panzer Division. There were so
many successful, even miraculous, adaptations to unbelievable military
problems and stresses by the
6th Panzer Division during seven
years of war, that it is shocking. Such glory was experienced fully only
by one other panzer division. These two volumes will shock and excite
the reader of
6th Panzer Division Glory: Volume 1 and 2.
“The German 6th Army planned to conduct counterattack "Spaetlese" with the bulk of 1st, 3rd and 6th Panzer Divisions,
Hungarian Infantry Division Saint Lazslo, and some smaller units. The 8th Panzer Division was meant to remain as the
reserve of Army Group South, in order to back up weak German defense lines between Velencei and Ercsi on the
Danube River. This operation, according to the commander of the 6th Army (General Hajmasker), was only to start after
the weather had turned colder (for the ground south of Lake Velencei and Szekesfehervar/ Simontornya according to
German intelligence was "moory and wet, thus was poor ground for conducting a large-scale panzer operation!"
While those discussions between the 6th Army and Army Group South went on, the 3rd and 6th Panzer Divisions, as well
as the separate tank battalions, detrained in the area west and northwest of Szekesfehervar. In mid-December, the
Soviets began their new offensive operation southeast and northwest of Budapest against the 3rd Panzer Corps of
General Breith.”
