2.SS Panzer Corps
The leader of the 2.SS
SS-Obergruppenführer Wilhelm Bittrich
Welcome to the page
of the 9.SS Panzer Division "Hohenstaufen" and the 10.SS
Panzer Division "Frundsberg"
This page is about
their forces in Operation Market Garden!
SEPTEMBER 17th 1944...
The skies of Holland was filled with
Our forces were under airborne attack!!!!!
The Hohenstaufen fought at Arnhem
the Frundsberg tried to protect Nijmegan!
IT WAS A FIGHT THEY WOULD NEVER FORGET!
READ MY OTHER PAGE... OPERATION MARKET GARDEN: A BRIDGE TOO FAR...
The brave division defended Arnhem
and Oosterbeek. Their small battle groups were very successful.
Kampfgruppe Spindler prevented the rest of the 1st British Airborne
Division from reaching Frost on the Arnhem Bridge. Kampfgruppe
Knaust forced Frost's 2nd Parachute Regiment to surrender.
SS-Gruppenführer Heinz Harmel
If you're looking for a good panzer
division, Frundsberg is a good choice eventhough they lost the
Nijmegan road bridge to the allies. For some reason, when Harmel
ordered it to be blown, it didn't blow and the allies crossed
the bridge. Despite the failure in Nijmegan, they successfully
blocked the road between Arnhem and Nijmegan. The famous Island.
