The Ardennes Offensive - VI Panzer Armee (Northern Sector). Bruce Quarrie. Osprey Publishing, 1999

___________________________________________________________

Обозначения на картах

Лист 1. Strategy in the West. The Allied breakout from Normandy was made on a “broad front”, but as their supply lines lengthened the advance slowed, giving the Germans time to regroup for “Herbstnebel” (С.5)

Лист 2. Operation “Herbstnebel” planning. Hitler’s “grosse losung” and the “kleine losung” of his generals. In retrospect, the Fuhrer should have accepted the latter, less ambitious, plan (С.9)

Лист 3. Operation “Herbstnebel” planning. Sixth Panzer Armee’s intended routes to the River Meuse. The most northern Rollbahn was reserved for LXVII Korps. Rollbahns A, B & C were assigned to 12 SS-Panzer Division while Rollbahns D & E were intended for 1 SS-Panzer Division. In fact, because “Hitler Jugend” got embroiled on the northern shoulder, Kampfgruppe “Peiper” used parts of C, D and E (С.10)

Лист 4. Operation “Herbstnebel” planning. The railheads for troops and supplies for Sixth Panzer Armee. Keitel estimated that no fewer than 50 trains would be needed for ammunition alone. Many had to spend the daylight hours hiding in tunnels from Allied air attacks (С.14)

Лист 5. Operation “Herbstnebel” planning. When finalizing “Herbstnebel”, the Germans knew that the U.S. First Army was thin on the ground, with divisions holding 20-30 mile fronts. They did not know precisely what lay in front of Sixth Panzer Armee, but estimated between five and seven divisions, including two armoured (С.18-19)

Лист 6. 1 SS-Panzer Division Leibstandarte “Adolf Hitler”. 1 SS-Panzer Division’s Rollbahns. Planed to reach the River Meuse by 18/12/1944 (С.30)

Лист 7. 12 SS-Panzer Division “Hitler Jugend”. 12 SS-Panzer Division’s Rollbahns. Planed to reach the River Meuse by 18/12/1944 (С.34)

Лист 8. 3 Fallschirmjager Division’s Rollbahns (С.36)

Лист 9. VI Panzer Armee, I SS-Panzer Korps. 277 Volksgrenadier Division and Kampfgruppe “Muller”, Krinkelt / Rocherath - December 16-18. The Defence of the “twin villages” of Krinkelt and Rocherath effectively denied I SS-Panzer Korps access to Rollbahn B and left I/12 SS-Panzer Regiment severely weakened (С.43)

Лист 10. I SS-Panzer Korps. 277 Volksgrenadier Division and Kampfgruppe “Muller”, Krinkelt / Rocherath - December 16-18. U.S. and German deployments at Krinkelt and Rocherath on 18th December when Jurgensen’s tanks so nearly broke through (С.45)

Лист 11. I SS-Panzer Korps. 12 Volksgrenadier Division and Kampfgruppe “Kuhlmann”, Bullingen / Dom Butgenbach - December 16-22. U.S. dispositions on the southern and western shoulder of Elsenborn ridge and the approach routes during successive attacks by 12 Volksgrenadier and 12 SS-Panzer Divisions. All failed to achieve a decisive breakthrough and the assault was abandoned (С.47)

Лист 12. I SS-Panzer Korps. 12 Volksgrenadier Division and Kampfgruppe “Kuhlmann”, Bullingen / Dom Butgenbach - December 16-22. The deployment of the U.S. 26th Infantry Regiment around Dom Butgenbach and the German attacks on 21-22 December before the withdrawal of 12 SS-Panzer Division (С.49)

Лист 13. I SS-Panzer Korps. Kampfgruppe “Peiper”, Losheim to La Gleize - December 16-24. Once he eventually got his Kampfgruppe out of Losheim, Peiper made good progress through Lanzerath and Honsfeld to the U.S. POL depot at Bullingen (С.53)

Лист 14. I SS-Panzer Korps. Kampfgruppe “Peiper”, Losheim to La Gleize - December 16-24. Peiper’s circuitous route to Ligneuville, dictated by the terrain, took him through Baugnez where the massacre of American prisoners occurred (С.54)

Лист 15. I SS-Panzer Korps. Kampfgruppe “Peiper”, Losheim to La Gleize - December 16-24. From Stavelot, where he missed the American fuel dump to the north, Peiper tried a two-pronged attack at Trois Ponts, which was thwarted by U.S. engineers (С.55)

Лист 16. I SS-Panzer Korps. Kampfgruppe “Peiper”, Losheim to La Gleize - December 16-24. Peiper attempted to circumvent Stoumont through Cheneux but was blocked at Habiemont and failed later to break through from La Gleize to Stoumont (С.56)

Лист 17. I SS-Panzer Korps. Kampfgruppe “Hansen’s” advance to Recht and Poteau, Recht / Poteau - December 17-19. Colonel Devine was ambushed near Kaiserbaracke. Poteau became of critical importance later during the evacuation of St. Vith (С.59)

Лист 18. I SS-Panzer Korps. 150 Panzer Brigade, Malmedy - December 21-28. Skorzeny’s two Kampfgruppen tried attacking at three points in the Malmedy perimeter but failed to get past the paper mill or railway embankment (С.61)

Лист 19. VI Panzer Armee, II SS-Panzer Korps. Kampfgruppe “Krag”, Salmchateau - December 21-23. Task Force “Jones” was straggling up the northern (eastern) bank of the Salm river with Kampfgruppe “Krag” blocking its path at Salmchateau and the Fuhrer Begleit Brigade pressing in from the east (С.71)

Лист 20. II SS-Panzer Korps. 4 SS-Panzergrenadier Regiment “Der Fuhrer”, Baraque Fraiture - December 22-23. The crossroads at Baraque Fraiture with the village of Fraiture itself to the northeast. Vielsalm is off to the right. Manhay to the top left. Parker’s three 105 mm guns were in the center of the position, the company of paras in a semi-circle to the north and the AFVs in a rough circle. Weidinger’s attack came from three directions, leaving the survivors only one escape route to the northwest (С.73)

Лист 21. II SS-Panzer Korps. 3 SS-Panzergrenadier Regiment “Deutschland” and 4 Kompanie, 2 SS-Panzer Regiment, Manhay / Grandmenil / Erezee - December 24-27. 2 SS-Panzer Division’s attacks from Odeigne and Fraiture, CCB’s withdrawal to the northwest and III/289th’s blocking position between Grandmenil and Erezee (С.75)

Лист 22. VI Panzer Armee, LXVII Korps. Hitzfeld’s LXVII Korps “Rollbahns” (С.78)

Лист 23. LXVII Korps. 326 Volksgrenadier Division, Hofen / Monschau - December 16-17. Hofen and Monschau lie in a bend of the River Rur, which produced a salient in the U.S. lines. V Corps’ attacks north and south towards the Rur and Urft dams were planned additionally to seal this off, but the German offensive pre-empted this. The two-pronged attacks by 326 Volksgrenadier Division were aimed at Hofen and Mutzenich (С.88)

Лист 24. LXVII Korps. 3 Panzergrenadier Division, Elsenborn Ridge - December 19-22. The area between Monschau and Elsenborn where 3 Panzergrenadier Division launched successive unsuccessful attacks before it was transferred to the southern sector of the front (С.91)

Лист 25. The Luftwaffe. II Jagdkorps, Luftflotte 3 airfields were thinly spread in a shallow curve fairly close to the front because of the fully laden aircrafts’ restricted range (С.94)

Лист 26. Ardennes offensive battle map. Northern sector (С.97-98)

Order of Battle №8: Наступление в Арденнах - 5-я танковая армия (Центральный сектор)

The Ardennes Offensive - V Panzer Armee (Central Sector) (Bruce Quarrie. Osprey Publishing, 2000)

___________________________________________________________

Обозначения на картах

Лист 1. Operation “Herbstnebel” planning. What did the Germans know about Allied dispositions facing the central sector of their front? The answer is “not a lot” because the substitution of the raw 106th for the veteran 2nd Infantry Division in the Schnee Eifel had been carefully concealed. Patrols had ascertained that the line further south was only thinly defended. Allied command of the skies made aerial reconnaissance impossible and therefore no one at OKW knew what further reserves might lie just east of the river Meuse for a prompt riposte (С.8-9)

Лист 2. V Panzer Armee. While Sixth Panzer Armee had five designated Rollbahns for its four Panzer divisions, Fifth Panzer Armee only had two for its three, and the southernmost fork of those encroached on Seventh Armee territory at Bastogne (С.12)

Лист 3. V Panzer Armee, XLVII Panzer Korps. XLVII Korps was only assigned a single Rollbahn for its two Panzer divisions although this split into two around Bastogne and then again west of Ciergnon, debouching on the Meuse at Dinant and Givet. Capturing Bastogne itself was initially the responsibility of 26 Volksgrenadier Division alone (С.16)

Лист 4. 2 Panzer Division “Wien”. The routes taken by 2 Panzer Division “Wien” diverted in a couple of places from its Rollbahn, skirting Bastogne for the following Volksgrenadiers to cope with, then splitting west of Champlon with Kampfgruppen “von Bohm” and “von Cochenhausen” taking different roads towards the Meuse at Dinant (С.20)

Лист 5. XLVII Panzer Korps. II/3 Panzer and II/304 Panzergrenadier Regiments, Clervaux - December 16-18. Because of his inexperience in top command, von Lauchert relied heavily on his regimental commanders to use their own initiative. By a mixture of sidestepping and fiercely resisting American counter-attacks, they won the vital bridge at Clervaux (С.33)

Лист 6. XLVII Panzer Korps. II/77 and I/78 Volksgrenadier Regiments, Hosingen - December 16-18. The unexpected resistance by a mere two companies of American infantry at Hosingen was only finally overcome after a 48-hour battle, and Kokott later acknowledged the determination of the defenders (С.36)

Лист 7. XLVII Panzer Korps. 39 Fusilier Grenadier Regiment, Holzthum / Consthum - December 16-18. Kokott encountered at Holzthum and Consthum exactly the same type of determined opposition from heavily outnumbered forces which was to cause so many delays to Fifth Panzer Armee’s schedule (С.38)

Лист 8. XLVII Panzer Korps. Kampfgruppe “von Bohm”, Bastogne Roadblocks - December 18-20. While the 101st Airborne Division was still beginning to deploy on 19 December, Bastogne lay wide open apart from a thin line of engineers and the roadblocks established by teams “Desobry”, “Cherry” and “O’Hara” (С.40)

Лист 9. XLVII Panzer Korps. Kampfgruppen “von Fallois” and “901”, Wardin / Marvie - December 19-23. After a probing attack by a single Kompanie drove a company of the 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment out of Wardin on 19 December, but was then repulsed outside Marvie, Hauser threw the whole regiment in on the 23rd (С.42)

Лист 10. XLVII Panzer Korps. 39 Fusilier Grenadier Regiment and Kampfgruppe “Kunkel”, Flamierge / Mande-St-Etienne - December 22-23. Before 39 Fusilier Grenadier Regiment’s successful attack at Flamierge on the evening of 23 December, the Germans were forced to watch tons of supplies being parachuted in to the Bastogne defenders (С.44)

Лист 11. XLVII Panzer Korps. Kampfgruppe “Maucke” and 77 Volksgrenadier Regiment, Hemroulle / Champs - December 25. Although Kampfgruppe “Maucke” broke through the 401st Glider Infantry Regiment’s lines, and 77 Grenadier Regiment through the 502nd Parachute Regiment’s positions at Champs, there the attack ended (С.46)

Лист 12. XLVII Panzer Korps. Kampfgruppen “von Bohm” and “von Cochenhausen”, Foy-Notre-Dame / Celles - December 24-26. Foy-Notre-Dame, where Kampfgruppe “von Bohm” was halted by tanks from the British 29th Armoured Brigade, lies only four miles east of the bridge at Dinant. Kampfgruppe “von Cochenhausen” was destroyed around Celles by a combination of the attacks by CCB of 2nd Armored Division and Allied fighter-bombers (С.49)

Лист 13. XLVII Panzer Korps. Kampfgruppe “von Poschinger”, Rochefort - December 23-24. If 2 Panzer Division had not been stalled at Celles, Panzer Lehr’s capture of Rochefort could have got both divisions across the Meuse (С.52)

Лист 14. XLVII Panzer Korps. Kampfgruppe “Holtmeyer”, Custinne - December 25. Advancing from Rochefort in daylight across relatively open ground offering little cover from allied fighter-bombers, Holtmeyer’s relief column in truth stood little chance of success (С.54)

Лист 15. XLVII Panzer Korps. Fuhrer Begleit Brigade and 3 Panzergrenadier Division, Sibret - December 30. The engagement at Sibret on 30 December was a classic “encounter” battle with both sides advancing towards each other along the same roads at the same time (С.56)

Лист 16. V Panzer Armee, LVIII Panzer Korps. The Rollbahn assigned to LVIII Panzer Korps was based on the ability of 116 Panzer Division to use the bridge at Ouren, and did not approach Samree or Hotton. If the bridge had been usable, the division could easily have been through Marche before the U.S. VII Corps even began deploying (С.59)

Лист 17. LVIII Panzer Korps. Kampfgruppen “Schumann” and “Bayer”, Ouren - December 16-18. If Walter Kruger had deployed 560 Volksgrenadier Division to take Ouren and 116 Panzer to their south, the tanks could have been on the banks of the Meuse while 2 Panzer Division was still struggling at Bastogne (С.67)

Лист 18. LVIII Panzer Korps. 60 Panzergrenadier Regiment and Kampfgruppe “Happich”, Samree - December 20. 116 Panzer Division’s swift victories at Samree and Dochamps were overshadowed by its further need for redeployment after being baulked next day east of Hotton (С.69)

Лист 19. LVIII Panzer Korps. Kampfgruppe “Bayer”, Hotton - December 21. The capture of Hotton would not just have given 116 Panzer Division quick access to Marche, but also forced U.S. forces to pull back from Manhay - Grandmenil - Erezee, opening the road for 2 SS-Panzer Division (С.71)

Лист 20. LVIII Panzer Korps. 156 Panzergrenadier Regiment, Marche / Verdenne - December 24-26. U.S. VII Corps’ deployment of the 84th Infantry Division west of Hotton while 116 Panzer Division was struggling to redeploy ended all von Waldenburg’s hopes of reaching the Meuse (С.73)

Лист 21. V Panzer Armee, LXVI Korps. The Fifth and Sixth Panzer Armee Korps were so redeployed once the Meuse was unattainable and Bastogne became the objective, that they bear little resemblance to those on 16 December (С.77)

Лист 22. LXVI Korps. Fuhrer Begleit Brigade. Original German map showing the successive probes by the Fuhrer Begleit Brigade at the defences of St. Vith over 18/24 December (С.83)

Лист 23. LXVI Korps. 293 and 294 Volksgrenadier Regiments, Schnee Eifel / Schonberg - December 16-19. Hoffman-Schonborn’s outflanking pincer manoeuvre in the Schnee Eifel at the outset of the campaign gave German forces their greatest victory in the Ardennes - and it was accomplished with lowly Volksgrenadiers! (С.85)

Лист 24. LXVI Korps. 183, 294 and 295 Volksgrenadier Regiments and Fuhrer Begleit Brigade, St. Vith - December 17-23. After 18 Volksgrenadier Division captured Schonberg, their elation at victory over the U.S. 106th Infantry Division was diminished by the unexpectedly fierce opposition just west of St. Vith (С.86)

Лист 25. LXVI Korps. 183, 294 and 295 Volksgrenadier Regiments and Fuhrer Begleit Brigade. The final capture of St. Vith by 294 Volksgrenadier Regiment after fighting its way through well dug-in enemy forces on higher ground contradicts standard military theory, which only proves that the “rule books” have to be thrown away sometimes! The subsequent exploitation by the Fuhrer Begleit Brigade, although it succeeded in completing the annihilation of Task Force “Jones” at Salmchateau, failed to accomplish the destruction of the U.S. 7th Armored Division as hoped, with severe repercussions when First Army counter-attacked in January 1945 (С.89)

Лист 26. V Panzer Armee, XXXIX Panzer Korps. 1 SS-Panzer Division and 167 Volksgrenadier Division, Lutrebois - December 30. On the same day that XLVII Korps’ assault towards Sibret from the northwest ran headlong into 11th Armored Division, XXXIX Korps was equally unable to break the Bastogne corridor from the southeast (С.95)

Лист 1. Brandenberger knew that the forces immediately facing his Seventh Armee were relatively weak, but at the same time realized that they would probably not be brushed aside easily, given the nature of the terrain and the limited mobility as well as lack of armoured backup of his own troops. The biggest problem he faced was the strong American artillery positions emplaced on high ground and able to fire with relative impunity on his bridging sites over the Our and Sauer, delaying any backup to his infantry (С.8-9)

Лист 2. VII Armee, LXXXV Korps. After 5 Fallschirm and 352 Volksgrenadier Divisions crossed the river Our, forcing the U.S. 109th Regiment to fall steadily back to the southwest and separating it from its parent 28th Infantry Division, the two divisions of LXXXV Korps found themselves increasingly separated as well by natural barrier of the river Sure. By December 22 they were, in effect, fighting totally separate battles and it was as much to plug the dangerous vacuum in between them as to reinforce them that Model released 9 and 79 Volksgrenadier Divisions and the Fuhrer Grenadier Brigade from reserve. Then, to shorten the over-extended Korps’ front, he brought the LIII Korps staff up from Trier to take over command of Seventh Armee’s northern flank (С.19)

Лист 3. LXXXV Korps. 14 Fallschirm Regiment, Hoscheid / Wiltz / Sibret - December 16-21. The advance of 5 Fallschirm Division’s two leading regiments over December 17/19 with 352 Volksgrenadier Division to their south and 26 Volksgrenadier Division to the north. The 14 Regiment’s assault on Wiltz itself was an unscheduled “private venture” (С.29)

Лист 4. LXXXV Korps. 15 Fallschirm Regiment, Vianden to Warnach - December 16-21. The first phase of 15 Fallschirm Regiment’s advance separated Companies F and G of II/109th Infantry Battalion from the rest of the regiment, forcing them to fight their way out back to Diekirch, while on the paras’ left flank 352 Volksgrenadier Division was involved in its own battles at Fuhren, Longsdorf and Tandel. After this, Groschke’s regiment, once its transport got across the Our at Roth, made almost record time reaching its objective at Martelange (С.32)

Лист 5. LXXXV Korps. 915 Volksgrenadier Regiment, Fuhren - December 16-19. After an initially promising start which drove a wedge between the American II/ and III/109th Battalions, 915 Volksgrenadier Regiment’s attack stalled at Longsdorf and Tandel in the face of counter-attacks, but once the defenders in Fuhren were subdued and 914 Regiment was able to add its weight to the centre of the division’s attack, the Americans were forced back to Diekirch (С.35)

Лист 6. LXXXV Korps. 916 Volksgrenadier Regiment, Hosdorf / Diekirch - December 16-20. After finally achieving a breakthrough on the northern flank of the U.S. III/109th on the heights west of Hosdorf, 916 Volksgrenadier Regiment pursued them back to Diekirch and ultimately to Ettelbruck (С.37)

Лист 7. LXXXV Korps. 915 Volksgrenadier Regiment, Ettelbruck / Grosbous - December 20-25. 915 Volksgrenadier Regiment’s leading two battalions were isolated by the U.S. III Corps’ rapid advance on December 22 and although the men put up a determined resistance, their plight was hopeless (С.39)

Лист 8. LXXXV Korps. 13 and 15 Fallschirm Regiment, Warnach / Bigonville - December 22-24. The twin battles for Warnach and Bigonville over December 23-24 were almost copybook exercises, each following a very similar pattern. In both cases the Fallschirmjager proved far more stubborn than their training and experience would have indicated but, without any tanks of their own, at the end of the day they were overwhelmed (С.41)

Лист 9. LXXXV Korps. I/208 and I/212 Volksgrenadier Regiments, Eschdorf / Heiderscheid - December 24. Assembling his leading two battalions just to the north of Eschdorf late on December 23 while the remainder of 79 Volksgrenadier Division was concentrated around Bourscheid to the east, Alois Weber launched his attack on Heiderscheid before dawn on Christmas Eve but had his men blown away by American Artillery fire (С.44)

Лист 10. LXXXV Korps. 266 and II/212 Volksgrenadier Regiments, Welscheid / Kehmen - December 23 - January 1. The excellent defensive nature of the landscape in what the Americans called the “Bourscheid Triangle” can clearly be seen, but Weber’s battle here still denied Patton the swift victory he had hoped for (С.46)

Лист 11. LXXXV Korps. 208 and I/212 Volksgrenadier Regiments, Ringelerhof - December 24-30. The map shows the overall situation between December 25 and 30 with Weber’s final attack against Ringelerhof arrowed. What is surprising seen at this scale is that McBride made no attempt to exploit the central Kehmen route from the west. The explanation is that he had lost two battalions of his 318th Regiment to reinforce 4th Armored Division, and third was tied down at Ettelbruck to the southeast (С.48)

Лист 12. LXXXV Korps. 14 Fallschirm Regiment, Villers-la-Bonne-Eau - December 30 - January 1. XXXIX Korps assault southeast of Bastogne achieved a small amount of local success at Lutrebois and Villers-la-Bonne-Eau but failed to dent the lines of the U.S. 35th Infantry Division significantly (С.50)

Лист 13. VII Armee. LXXX Korps. The LXXX Korps’ zone of operation to the northeast of Luxembourg City is characterized by some of the most rugged terrain in the Ardennes, which obviously helped the defenders more than the attackers. In the south, 212 Volksgrenadier Division’s assault reached as far west as Scheidgen but the stubborn American resistance in Echternach itself and the villages of Osweiler and Dickweiler tied up a large part of the division’s strength - and it had only two regiments in the line. In the northern sector, 276 Volksgrenadier Division captured Mullerthal and Beaufort, surrounding the U.S. 60th Armored Infantry Battalion and forcing the Americans to withdraw the troublesome artillery batteries from behind Haller, but the division lacked the strength for its subsequent attacks towards Medernach and Christnach to succeed (С.55)

Лист 14. LXXX Korps. 986 Volksgrenadier Regiment, Wallendorf / Savelborn - December 16-18. Although its initial progress was slow due to flanking fire from American troops north of the Sure, 986 Volksgrenadier Regiment helped to encircle the 60th Armored Infantry Battalion and later successfully ambushed the task forces sent to its relief (С.64)

Лист 15. LXXX Korps. 988 Volksgrenadier Regiment, Dillingen / Beaufort - December 16-18. While 988 Volksgrenadier Regiment was able to penetrate the 60th Armored Infantry Battalion’s lines and surround them, American artillery fire prevented any more significant advance until nightfall on December 17 (С.66)

Лист 16. LXXX Korps. 987 Volksgrenadier Regiment, Mullerthal - December 17-25. Even though 987 Volksgrenadier Regiment made no serious attempt to break out from Mullerthal, their presence in the Schwarz Ernst gorge tied down a significant number of American tanks and infantry and caused them heavy casualties (С.67)

Лист 17. LXXX Korps. 423 Volksgrenadier Regiment, Berdorf / Lauterborn - December 16-20. The swift assault by I/ and II/423 Volksgrenadier Regiment completely cut off the small American garrisons in Berdorf and Lauterborn, forcing relief task forces to rescue the survivors (С.70)

Лист 18. LXXX Korps. 320 Volksgrenadier Regiment and 212 Fusilier Bataillon, Echternach Sector - December 16-19. The attack by 320 Volksgrenadier Regiment was delayed by the necessity to move the bridging site from Echternach to Edingen and although Echternach was finally taken on December 19, all efforts to capture Dickweiler and Osweiler failed (С.72)

Лист 19. VII Armee, LIII Korps. When von Rothkirch assembled his staff at Wiltz on December 22, 5 Fallschirm Division was thinly spread in a long line from the Neufchateau - Bastogne road in the west to Liefrange in the east and seriously delayed 4th Armored Division’s advance. The Fuhrer Grenadier Brigade moved into the vacuum on its left but was itself over-extended on the line Arsdorf - Bourscheid. By the time 9 Volksgrenadier Division arrived at the end of the month, Bastogne had already been relieved and Patton’s men were across the Sure and pressing towards Wiltz. The map also shows Generalleutnant Karl Decker’s XXXIX Panzer Korps’ attack at Lutrebois and Villers-la-Bonne-Eau on December 30 in which 14 Fallschirm Regiment took part (С.75)

Лист 20. LIII Korps. Fuhrer Grenadier Brigade, Arsdorf / Eschdorf / Grevils-Bresil - December 23-25. The Fuhrer Grenadier Brigade was unable to deploy effectively in the Eschdorf area and, because it lacked its artillery and grenadier battalions, was unable to resist the powerful III Corps’ onslaught to the south of the Sure (С.81)

Лист 21. LIII Korps. Fuhrer Grenadier Brigade, Heiderscheidergrund - December 25-27. The battle along the banks of the river Sure around Heiderscheidergrund was confused, with elements of two American divisions involved, Major von Courbiere trying to regroup the Fuhrer Grenadier Brigade in a defensible position which was soon outflanked, and the supporting battalions of 79 Volksgrenadier Division moving through their lines to new positions around Bourscheid for the ill-fated assault on Ringelerhof (С.83)

Лист 22. LIII Korps. Fuhrer Grenadier Brigade and 9 Volksgrenadier Division, Kaundorf / Wiltz - December 27-30. Although the town of Wiltz was only four miles (6.5 km) away as the crow flies once the U.S. 26th Infantry Division established itself on the north band of the Sure, the combined efforts of the Fuhrer Grenadier Brigade and the freshly arrived 9 Volksgrenadier Division made those miles very long indeed (С.85)

Лист 23. I Armee, Operation “Nordwind”. Considering the expenditure of manpower, the gains made by First Armee during Operation “Nordwind” were extremely modest. The subsequent attacks through Wissembourg and Gambsheim threatened Haguenau but even the arrival of XXXIX Panzer Korps proved insufficient to do more than dent the American and French lines. Similarly, Nineteenth Armee’s sortie out of the Colmar pocket never really threatened Strasbourg (С.89)

Лист 24. By January 3, when the Allied counter-offensive began in earnest, and certainly over the period January 2-5, the Heeresgruppe B perimeter was already shrinking drastically. Except to the immediate southeast of Bastogne, Seventh Armee had been driven back behind its start line; in the north, Sixth Panzer Armee had been forced back well behind the Rur, while in the centre Fifth Panzer Armee’s remaining “bulge” was threatened by assaults from north and south aimed at eliminating it completely at Houffalize (С.93)

The Ardennes Offensive - US III & XII Corps (Southern Sector) (Bruce Quarrie. Osprey Publishing, 2001)

Обозначения на картах

Лист 1. Seen at this scale, the German concentration for Operation “Herbstnebel” and the weakness of Hodges’ First Army in the Ardennes are clearly apparent. When the attack began, Patton’s XII Corps (Eddy) was preparing to launch its offensive through the relatively weak sector of the West Wall, around Saarbrucken. Instead, it was transferred to the Echternach front while III Corps (Millikin) went to the relief of Bastogne. XV Corps (Haislip) then took over the XII Corps’ sector. XX Corps (Walker), although still apart of Third Army, became, in effect, the left flank formation of Devers’ 6th Army Group until the crisis was resolved (С.8)

Лист 2. The Allies believed that German forces east of the river Sauer were thinly spread and low grade, but the sadly depleted 4th Infantry Division’s 12th Regiment and CCA of 9th Armored Division were in fact each opposed by a full Volksgrenadier division. Similarly, to their north the 109th Regiment of the 28th Infantry Division was faced by a Volksgrenadier and a Fallschirmjager division, shortly to be reinforced by a Panzer brigade (С.10-11)

Лист 3. U.S. Third Army. The relief of Bastogne. At this scale, it is impossible to show German dispositions without obscuring geographical features referred to in the text. Where relevant, these are shown in the following III Corps’ battles maps but, broadly speaking, the whole top half of the map from the rivers Wark and Sure north could be painted red, apart from the enclave of the besieged forces in Bastogne. The routes taken by CCA and CCB of 4th Armored Division are shown as solid blue lines. The route of CCR to Bigonville is shown as dashes, and its diversion towards Sibret via Neufchateau, which resulted in re-establishing contact with McAuliffe’s garrison, is shown dotted. The operating areas of Millikin’s III Corps’ other two divisions, 26th and 80th Infantry, are also shown but not dated, to avoid confusion (С.15)

Лист 4. U.S. Third Army, U.S. III Corps. CCA, 4th Armored Division, Martelange / Warnach - December 22-24. The stumbling block over the river Sure at Martelange is evident, and it is surprising that the CO of the German 5 Fallschirm Division did not put up a more stubborn resistance here. Warnach, as can be seen, was on the flank of CCA’s rout, and, because of the strength of German forces in and around it, could not simply be bypassed as Patton instructed (С.37)

Лист 5. U.S. III Corps. CCB, 4th Armored Division, Chaumont - December 23-25. Surrounded by dense woods, the little village of Chaumont lies in a saucer-like depression. The map shows CCB’s attack and 5 Fallschirm Division’s counter-attack on December 23 (С.40)

Лист 6. U.S. III Corps. CCR, 4th Armored Division, Bigonville - December 23-24. Because of the constricting nature of the ground, making it impossible to simply bypass Bigonville, and the determined German resistance, it took Wendell Blanchard’s CCR 24 hours to advance a single mile (С.42)

Лист 7. U.S. III Corps. CCR, 4th Armored Division, Remonville / Clochimont / Assenois - December 25-26. Illustrating the tortuous route taken by CCR, the map shows the command assembled for the assault on Clochimont with the “C Team” poised for the dash through Assenois to Bastogne (С.44)

Лист 8. U.S. III Corps. 104th and 328th Infantry Regiments, 26th Infantry Division, Grevils-Bresil / Grosbous / Eschdorf - December 22-25. The situation on December 24. While the 104th Regiment remained engaged against 915 Volksgrenadier Regiment around Grosbous and I/ and III/328th hit a snag at Grevils-Bresil, II/328th hooked around to attack Eschdorf but ran into further heavy opposition from the Fuhrer Grenadier Brigade (С.45)

Лист 9. U.S. III Corps. 134th Infantry and 51st Armored Infantry Regiments, Lutrebois - December 29-30. While Baade’s 137th and 320th Infantry Regiments had their own hard-fought battles at Villers-la-Bonne-Eau and Harlange, the main assault fell on Lutrebois, but was checked with heavy German casualties (С.48)

Лист 10. U.S. III Corps. CCA and CCB, 6th Armored Division, Arloncourt / Mageret / Wardin - December 31 - January 5. The situation on January 2, 1945, after Robert Grow committed CCR to the 6th Armored Division’s assault. The original line of advance was bounded on the south by the river Wiltz, and on the north by the Bastogne - Bourcy railway line, but was then broadened to embrace Wardin so as to, hopefully, make contact with the 35th Infantry Division. The strong German dispositions on the flanks ruled out a straight thrust through Longvilly (С.50)

Лист 11. U.S. III Corps. 101st and 104th Infantry Regiments, 26th Infantry Division, from the Sure to the Wiltz - December 26 - January 2. The situation on December 27 looked promising, with the leading battalions of the 101st and 104th Regiments in an apparently strong position to recapture Wiltz, but the appearance was deceptive, and it would take another three weeks to cover those last couple of miles (С.53)

Лист 12. U.S. Third Army, U.S. XII Corps. Company E, 12th Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Division, Echternach - December 16-20. Captain Paul Dupuis’ Company E, II/12th RCT, was almost totally isolated in Echternach as German forces swept around the town. He considered he was under orders to stay put, even when armoured task forces offered to cover his withdrawal. He was ultimately overwhelmed (С.69)

Лист 13. U.S. XII Corps. Companies B and F, 12th Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Division, Berdorf - December 16-19. Berdorf was the most northerly outpost of Colonel Chance’s 12th Infantry Regiment and, although at one point it was almost completely cut off, the defenders tied down a whole German battalion for four vital days (С.71)

Лист 14. U.S. XII Corps. Companies A and G, 12th Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Division, Lauterborn - December 16-20. Although surrounded early in the battle, the men of Companies A and G of the 12th Infantry Regiment managed to hold out in Lauterborn until help arrived and only evacuated their position when all hope for the garrison in Echternach was abandoned (С.73)

Лист 15. U.S. XII Corps. Companies I, L and C, 12th Infantry Regiment and Company F, 22nd Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Division, Dickweiler / Osweiler - December 16-20. Although they were surrounded early in the battle, it proved possible to get sufficient reinforcements to Companies I and L in Dickweiler and Osweiler so that the whole German effort in the south was crippled (С.75)

Лист 16. U.S. XII Corps. 318th and 319th Infantry Regiments, 80th Infantry Division, Ettelbruck - December 22-24. With the 26th Infantry Division on its left, the 319th RCT relieved the 109th in Vichten and, bypassing Merzig, hit the tail of 915 Volksgrenadier Regiment in flank, before heading towards Heiderscheid and Kehmen. Merzig was later captured by III/319th. The 318th, advancing in column alongside the river Alzette, reached Ettelbruck at the same time as 914 Volksgrenadier Regiment, resulting in a prolonged battle (С.77)

Лист 17. U.S. XII Corps. 319th Infantry Regiment, 80th Infantry Division, Heiderscheid - December 23-24. The situation at nightfall on December 23. The three battalions of the 319th are deployed in a triangle with a single company of the 3rd Battalion at Heiderscheidergrund. The two battalions from the 26th Infantry Division attacking Eschdorf are on the left (С.79)

Лист 18. U.S. XII Corps. 317th Infantry Regiment, 80th Infantry Division, “The Bourscheid Triangle” - December 23-25. The German defence of the “Bourscheid Triangle” proved too strong for the 317th RCT but, although it lost heavily at Kehmen, Welscheid and on Burden ridge, the opposing 79 Volksgrenadier Division’s assault on Ringelerhof was equally fruitless (С.81)

Лист 19. U.S. XII Corps. Task Forces “Chamberlain” and “Luckett”, Breitweiler / Mullerthal - December 17-20. The problem the various American task forces - and 5th Infantry Division later in the day - had getting past Mullerthal are easily explained by the nature of the Schwarz Ernst gorge. What remains a mystery is why the Germans did not exploit it earlier (С.83)

Лист 20. U.S. XII Corps. 10th Infantry Regiment, 5th Infantry Division, Michelshof - December 22-26. The advance of 10th Infantry Regiment’s 1st and 2nd Battalions either side of Michelshof, towards Lauterborn, was seriously delayed by resistance in the woods which look insignificant on the map but were full of determined Voksgrenadiers (С.86)

Лист 21. U.S. XII Corps. 8th Infantry Regiment, 4th Infantry Division and 11th Infantry Regiment, 5th Infantry Division, Berdorf / Haller - December 22-27. The situation on December 25 showing the positions of the 11th Infantry Regiment’s three battalions west of the Schwarz Ernst gorge, and those of the 2nd Regiment to the east. The German forces opposing them appear much stronger than they, in fact, were by this stage (С.88)

Лист 22. 6th Army Group. While Guillaume’s 3e Division Algerien concentrated on the defence of Strasbourg, the remainder of de Lattre’s Premiere Armee Francaise got on with the reduction of the German Nineteenth Armee’s two Korps in the Colmar pocket. Devers assigned the 5th and 12th Armored Divisions to assist the three infantry divisions in Frank Milburn’s XXI Corps from Seventh Army, which were co-operating with the French during the operation  (С.91)

Лист 23. The unbroken line on the map shows the front line 24 hours into the Allied offensive. The slow progress initially is clearly indicated by the heavy broken line, which shows the situation on January 12. The final dotted line marks the situation at the end of the month (С.93)

Лист 1. Tanks in amphibious assault - Omaha Beach. The plans for Operation Neptune included the support of both regimental combat teams at Omaha Beach by one tank battalion, with the 741st Tank Battalion supporting the 16th RCT on the eastern side and the 743rd supporting the 116th RCT on the western side. Each battalion deployed two companies with DD tanks and one company with M4 and M4A1 medium tanks with wading trunks. The DD tanks were supposed to be launched from 5000 to 6000 yards offshore, and to be the first US troops ashore five minutes before H-Hour, to be followed five minutes later by the remaining tank companies landing from LCTs. As it transpired, most of the DD tanks from the 741st Tank Battalion ware swamped at sea, and the 743rd Tank Battalion’s two DD companies landed directly on shore from their LCTs (С.47)

Лист 2. Tanks in amphibious assault - Operation Dragoon. Although less well known than the amphibious assault in Normandy, tank battalions also supported the landings on the French Riviera on August 15, 1944, when the US Seventh Army invaded southern France. Each of the assaulting divisions was assigned a tank battalion, with each of these battalions having about a company of DD tanks. The eight DD tanks of the 756th Tank Battalion with Alpha Force disembarked about 2500 yards from the beach and swam to shore, with one being sunk by wash from a passing landing craft and another by an underwater mine. Two tanks from this unit were involved in fighting against German pillboxes. Of the 12 DD tanks with the 191st Tank Battalion in the center with Delta Force, four swam ashore from 75 yards at H-hour (0800 hrs), while the remaining eight were landed from their LCTs directly on shore. Of the 16 DD tanks of the 753rd Tank Battalion with Camel Force, eight swam ashore in the initial wave and the remaining eight arrived in the early afternoon, and were landed directly on shore. There was a skirmish between these tanks and a German self-propelled gun, which was knocked out. There was significantly less resistance on these beaches than at Normandy, but mines disabled at least five tanks (С.49)

Лист 1. The Southeastern Area was under the operational control of the IJN. Following the US invasion of Guadalcanal, the IJA’s presence in the area vastly increased. The Japanese airfields, and seaplane and naval bases are shown on this map (С.5)

Лист 2. The Japanese defenses at Gona, Papua, November-December 1942, which formed the western anchor of the Gona-Buna beach strongholds. The defense in depth provides three lines of defense, beach defenses protecting the rear, and flank defenses. There are also hundreds of foxholes and dugouts, which are not shown at this scale (С.28)

Лист 3. This is a simplified diagram of a January 1943 Japanese strongpoint in the Central Sector of South Giruwa, 2.5 miles south of the coast. The Allies designated in “Perimeter Q”. The surrounding ground was swampy, and could be up to waist deep after rain (С.29)

Лист 4. The defenses of Gona, 1942, the western end of the 3.5 mile-long Gona position in the Buna-Gona area. The areas within this position called the Triangle, Coconut Grove, and the Island were particularly difficult to overwhelm for US forces. The defenses also featured hundreds of foxholes, dugouts, and other small positions, which are not shown here. In the upper right are trench lines positioned perpendicular to the coast. These trenches faced Allied troops that had penetrated the outer defenses and were attempting to roll up the defenses from the flank. They proved particularly difficult to take (С.32)

Лист 5. 18th Army’s attack plan on the Driniumor River, July 10-11, 1944. The frontal attack in the center of the American line east of Apitape strove to achieve a breakthrough; it was successful, and created a gap in the line. The 237th Infantry swung north and took up positions behind the US frontline; it remained there for several days, before being driven back. The 78th and 80th moved south to occupy the southern and of the line. US counterattacks were able to restore the line, and had driven the remnants of the 20th Division across the river by August 1 (С.33)

The Japanese deployment routes for the March counteroffensive underline the transportation and logistical difficulties the Japanese faced (С.71)

Лист 13. Japanese movements in Eastern New Guinea, July 1942 - April 1944. On this map, different colours have been used to distinguish the units, and refer only to Japanese forces (С.74)

Лист 14. Buna-Gona positions, November 1943 - January 1944. In addition to the four main positions (Gona, Sanananda-Giruwa, South Giruwa, and Buna), there were countless small, scattered positions in between. It required seven Australian brigades, four US regiments, and over two month of brutal fighting to reduce Buna-Gona (С.75)

Лист 15. The withdrawal from Buna-Gona, January 1943. Some elements of those units destroyed here managed to escape 20 miles west to the Kumusi River, or were evacuated by barge. The fact that some 3400 managed to escape was unknown to the Allies (С.78)

Хронология (С.9-14)

Лист 1. The rival invasion plans (a) produced by an Army High Command (OKH) team under General Marcks in early August 1940, aimed the main thrusts at Moscow and Kiev (С.18)

Лист 2. The rival invasion plans (b) adopted by Colonel-General Halder, Chief of General Staff of OKH, on 5 December 1940. This added a strong thrust at Leningrad to Marcks’ plan (С.18)

Лист 3. The rival invasion plans (c) laid down by Hitler in Directive No. 21 (Operation Barbarossa) of 18 December 1940. This version of the plan made the destruction of Soviet forces in the Baltic States and the taking of Leningrad first priority. Moscow was to be considered only after this had been achieved (С.19)

Лист 4. The front line at the start of Operation Typhoon (С.31)

Лист 5. The Soviet counteroffensive at Moscow (С.35)

Лист 6. The Red Army springs the trap at Stalingrad (С.43)

Лист 7. The German plan for Operation Citadel. The intention was to eliminate the salient by the classic method, driving across its neck from north and south. However, the Soviets expected this (С.50)

Лист 8. Partisan areas, 1943-1944 (The open steppes of the Ukraine offered little scope for large-scale partisan activity, and most groups there were small. In Belorussia and the Baltics, forests and swamps made it easier for partisans to form large bands and even to take control of sizable areas. They contributed notably to the Soviet successes at Kursk in 1943 and in Belorussia in 1944 by disrupting German communications and monitoring German troop movements. Some partisans in Ukraine and the Baltics were nationalist and fought Soviet as well as German rule. In February 1944 Ukrainian nationalist partisans ambushed and mortally wounded front commander General Vatutin. These anti-Soviet formations fought on until 1947) (С.54)

Лист 9. Soviet gains, November 1943 - August 1944 (In this period the battle for the Dnepr (August-December 1943) was followed by the lifting of the siege of Leningrad (January 1944), and by Operation Bagration in Belorussia (June-August 1944), with associated offensives on the Finnish, Carpathian, and southern sectors. By the end of August, the Germans had been expelled from almost all Soviet territory, and the Red Army had entered Romania, Poland, and East Prussia) (С.62)

Лист 10. From the Vistula to the Oder, January 1945 (This Soviet offensive lasted only 22 days (12 January - 2 February 1945), but ended with a seizure of bridgeheads across the Oder only about 60 miles (100km) from Berlin) (С.66)

Лист 11. The Battle of Berlin, April 1945 (С.70)

Лист 12. The campaign in the Far East, August 1945 (This campaign was noteworthy for the logistical problems of supplying a highly mechanized force, 1.7 million strong, over enormous distances. The actual fighting lasted only two weeks. For the Soviet Union's brief participation, Stalin took more Japanese territory (Southern Sakhalin and the Kurile Islands) than his allies, who had fought Japan for several years) (С.79)

The Second World War (3) - The war at sea. P. Grove, M. Grove, A. Finlan. Osprey Publishing 2002

___________________________________________________________

Хронология (С.9-12)

Лист 1. Europe steers toward war (С.14)

Лист 2. The Mediterranean (С.39)

Лист 3. Red Sea. Mussolini's decision to declare war on a statistically weaker Britain in the Mediterranean may have seemed a worthwhile gamble. However, it meant that the Red Sea forces were cut off from Italy and their supplies. Unless Italy could defeat British forces in Egypt and east Africa, its isolated naval garrison would eventually succumb to an overwhelming Royal Navy presence. Initially, Italy held the advantage over the British Empire on the land in east Africa, forcing an amphibious withdrawal. However, the same naval flexibility enabled British forces to come back into east Africa and ensured eventual victory in 1941 and the seizure of the Italian ports (С.42)

Лист 4. Japanese incursions in the Indian Ocean (С.47)

Лист 5. Eastern Indian Ocean - sinkings and incursions. The Imperial Japanese navy made only one large-scale sortie into the Indian Ocean during the Pacific War, and that was during April 1942 The Japanese feet accounted for a number of vessels and forced Admiral Somerville's fleet to the western Indian Ocean. However the Japanese failed to take advantage of their naval superiority. Following strikes against Ceylon and targets in the Bay of Bengal, they withdrew to the Pacific (С.50)

Лист 6. Arctic convoy routes, winter and summer. From August 1941 the Royal Navy started running vital resupply convoys around northern Norway to the beleaguered Soviet Union. Eventually, almost 4.5 million tons of war materiel would be carried by this route. But constrained by both geography and the atrocious Arctic weather and, after March 1942, subjected to the concentrated efforts of German aircraft, submarines, and surface vessels lurking in Norwegian fjords, this was the most dangerous of all convoy routes, with almost 8.5 percent of merchant vessels despatched lost (С.54)

Лист 7. Madagascar. Operation Ironclad was a testing ground for British amphibious operations following their initial failures earlier in the war One area that was exploited far better than in previous landings was the use of carrier-based aircraft, particularly in larger numbers. The carriers HMS Illustrious and HMS Indomitable flew a cross section of the British naval aircraft of the time, employing Swordfish, Albacores, Fulmars, Martletts (Wildcats), and Sea Hurricanes. The Illustrious was also used in the successful operations in September (С.55)

Лист 8. The Atlantic. The key to the naval war was control of the Atlantic. Forays of large German surface units such as Bismarcks could be dealt with. However, continuing the menace of German submarine Wolf Packs that preyed on Allied convoy routes, which grew in complexity as the war progressed, was a much greater problem. It was not until the late spring of 1943 that adequate control of the Atlantic had been acquired with the increasing availability of very long-ranged land based maritime patrol aircraft playing a vital role (С.58)

Лист 9. Normandy landings. D-Day saw US and British airborne landings on either flank of the assault areas to protect the Allied seaborne landings. Forces arrived in Area Z from the southern half of Great Britain - follow up forces would come from the whole country - and several thousand vessels of all kinds were funnelled through narrow channels swept through the deep-water minefields. By the end of 6 June 57,500 American and 75,215 British and Canadian troops would be ashore (С.66)

Лист 10. D-Day gun duels. In an attempt to protect the coast German forces had created an Atlantic Wall of mines, obstacles and gun emplacements. Whilst not as formidably defended as some sections of the coast, the German heavy gun batteries in Normandy were sited to cover the entire landing area with interlocking arcs of fire and unmolested would have made the landings impossible. An essential feature that made the Allied landings possible, was the presence of large numbers of heavy naval vessels to counter the threat posed by these guns (С.67)

Глоссарий, сокращения (С.2)

Лист 1. The Pacific Theater at the extent of the Japanese conquest and the subsequent establishment of the National Defense Zone (С.6)

Лист 2. A hill strongpoint. This is an approximation of the internal defenses of Hill 130, what the Americans called the “Chocolate Drop”, 1500 yards northeast of Shrui, Okinawa. It is typical of multi-level hill strongpoints with an all-round defense. The US 77th Infantry Division, approaching from the north, took from May 11-17 to capture it, losing ten tanks and so many infantry that a regiment was reduced to a battalion. There are four levels, connected together by inclined passages: each level is indicated here by the number before a particular feature on that level (С.10)

Лист 3. A dense trench system prepared for water’s-edge beach defense on Kwajalein Atoll, January 1944. Individual rifle and LMG pits are connected by unrevetted 2- to 2.5ft-wide, 3ft-deep trenches. Small coconut log bunkers were provided for each section for protection from naval bombardment (С.13)

Лист 4. Inland defenses were situated to provide an all-round defense. This section position comprises one-man foxholes, individual dugouts, an LMG pillbox and a log sleeping shelter all connected by shallow, narrow communication trenches (С.16)

Лист 5. Defense of Shemya Island in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska, defended by the 303d IIB, August 1942. The island measures 2.25 by 4.25 miles (the drawing is adapted from a captured Japanese sketch) (С.16)

Лист 6. The Japanese defenses on the Pinnacle (Hill 145) (С.18)

Лист 7. 14th IIB, 63d Brigade, 62d Division dispositions for a defense against an amphibious landing on the lower west coast of Okinawa north of Naha, March 1945 (С.46-47)

Лист 8. Тактические примеры. Japanese plan for the defense of a hypothetical coral atoll island reproduced in a 1944 issue of Tactical and Technical Trends. Note the Japanese expected the landing to occur on the ocean side of the island rather than from the atoll’s inner lagoon side (С.51)

Лист 9. Тактические примеры. Doctrinally specified Japanese platoon, company, and battalion defensive areas (С.52)

Лист 10. Тактические примеры. US tactics for assault on a Japanese pillbox (С.54)

Лист 11. A Marine sketch of the Cape Torokina defenses on Bougainville, November 1943 (С.55)

Лист 12. Japanese defenses of San Manuel village on Luzon. While US forces attacked from the south were the main defense line was established, an all-around defense was provided for. Many positions within the village were also oriented to the flanks and rear. It was defended by an infantry battalion and a tank brigade with some 40 medium and five light tanks. They were backed by six 105mm howitzers, seven 75mm regimental guns, and two 47mm AT guns along with many machine guns. The Japanese attention to providing depth to the defense is readily apparent. Only key buildings are shown (С.56)

Лист 13. Because of the Marine raid on Butaritari Island, the occupied Gilbert Islands were heavily reinforced and upgraded defenses prepared there and on Tarawa. This diagram depicts the island’s defenses when the Army landed in November 1943 (С.61)

Лист 1. Manila and Subic bays, the Philippines (С.6)

Лист 2. The layout of Battery Cheney (С.10)

Лист 3. The mine defenses in Manila Bay, December 1941. The Army’s controlled minefields in the South Channel had been removed by this date and replaced with the Navy’s contact mines (С.11)

Лист 4. Fort Drum, El Fraile Island, in the late 1920s (С.14-15)

Лист 5. The Malinta Hill tunnel system (С.25)

Лист 6. A horizontal fire control diagram for the American coast artillery. The target was located by the method of intersection used in surveying: the direction of the target was determined from two known points. The system required a base line on the ground, the azimuth and length of which had been accurately determined by surveying; two observation stations, one at each end of the base line, in each of which was mounted an instrument for measuring azimuths; a plotting room with plotting board; and the necessary communication lines. In the resultant triangle, one side and the two adjacent angles were known: the result was drawn graphically on the plotting board (С.27)

Лист 7. The military situation in the Pacific Ocean, December 1941 (С.30)

Лист 8. Japanese assault on Corregidor, May 5-6, 1942 (С.34)

Лист 10. The gun crew of Battery Geary operating the 12in. mortars under fire on May 2, 1942. At 1030 a Japanese 240mm howitzer projectile penetrated the reinforced concrete of the central magazine and detonated the ammunition stored there. The resulting explosion obliterated the magazine and destroyed all eight mortars (С.38)

Лист 11. American landing and attack on Corregidor, February 16 to March 1, 1945 (С.39)

Лист 12. Fort Frank, Carabao Island. The high narrow ridges of Carabao Island were transformed by engineers to hold two 14in. rifles on disappearing carriages, eight 12in. mortars, and two 3in. guns. The batteries were connected by a series of tunnels with underground railways (shown here in green), above-ground tracks (red), and pathways. The island had its own power generation plant and a desalination plant. Its proximity to the Cavite shore made it a frequent target for Japanese artillery during the 1942 campaign, but the garrison maintained and manned its weapons up until the day of surrender (С.47)

Defenses of Pearl Harbor and Oahu, 1907-50. G. Williford & T. McGovern. Osprey Publishing, 2003

___________________________________________________________

Хронология (С.6-8)

Лист 1. Located in the east-central Pacific Ocean, the Hawaiian Islands are strategically and physically isolated. This map shows the relative distances in miles from Oahu to major Pacific Rim ports and locations (С.5)

Лист 2. Oahu’s natural form derives from the rims of two ancient volcanoes, the remains of which are the extensive mountain ranges in the west (Waianae) and east (Koolau), with a flat central plain in between them. Only on the south shore do natural harbors exist, at Pearl Harbor and Honolulu (С.10)

Лист 3. Leahi Peak fire control complex on Diamond Head. Leahi, the most southern peak on the rim of Diamond Head Crater east of Honolulu, was part of the original Fort Ruger Army reservation. It was selected to be the site of a unique multilevel fire control position. The construction work was carried out in 1910, and the complex transferred to coastal artillery troops on January 20, 1911. Four separate station levels were built into the cliff face, each serving a different battery or command: Station 1 served the First Battle Command; Station 2 served the First Fire Command and Battery Harlow; Station 3 served the Second Fire Command and Battery Dudley; and Station 4 served Battery Randolph. The stations were equipped with observation azimuths, plotting boards, and Depression Position Finder (DPF) instruments. The stations were reached using an approach trail, steep staircases, and an unlined tunnel ramp. Cable winches were used to haul supplies up the steep inclines. A small officers’ dormitory was located at the foot of the stairs, whereas quarters for enlisted men were in a ravine off the trail further down the slope. The stations served through World War II, and are still accessible today (С.19)

Лист 4. The Oahu seacoast and land defense battery locations, together with the positions of the major defensive military reservations and their battery structures built between 1907 and 1925 (С.20)

Лист 5. Fort Kamehameha on the southeastern side of the entry to Pearl Harbor as it might have appeared in 1921. Note the original, more developed western portion of the reservation, and how the defensive gun batteries are closely sited with the post, housing, and other buildings (С.27)

Лист 6. Firing practice at Battery Harlow, Fort Ruger, mid. 1930s (С.31)

Лист 7. Casemating Battery Hatch, Fort Barrette, 1942. The 16in. guns of Battery Hatch, Fort Barrette, were given massive overhead protection during 1941-42 using reinforced concrete, a process known as "casemating". Each structure contained a gun room (34ft x 51ft), two powder rooms (15ft x 73ft), two projectile rooms (12ft x 18ft), and a storeroom (10ft x 17ft). The concrete walls were 10-12ft thick. Above the magazines was 8ft of reinforced concrete, and this increased to 12ft over the gun itself. The structure was then capped with up to 24ft of earth, and a 1ft-thick concrete burster course (designed to detonate bombs or shells and absorb their explosion without harming the main structure). The trade-off for this increased protection was that the guns’ previous 360-degree field of fire was reduced to just 145 degrees. The illustration shows the No.2 gun casemate completed but as yet uncovered by earth, with work under way on the No.1 gun position: in reality, both were casemated simultaneously. Both guns kept their weapons in service throughout the work (С.42)

Лист 8. Battery Arizona (С.46-47)

Лист 9. The World War II fields of fire for the older retained and modernized batteries (over 8in.), the war emergency Navy turret batteries, and the new 8in. batteries on Oahu (С.51)

Лист 7. Saint Roch, Castillon, Pas du Roc, Monte Grosso. Examples of Alpine gros ouvrages. Castillon is a particularly compact ouvrage with a dual-level support area. Monte Grosso is one of only two ouvrages in the Alps with two turret blocks. In all cases, casemate-mounted artillery was mounted in pairs and individual pairs within a block generally fired in different directions. Except for two 75mm “mortars” in the gros ouvrage of Pas du Roc, all the 75mm weapons shown in the plans are 75mm guns (С.38)

Лист 8. The Maginot Line in the Maritime Alps. Looking south-west along the line of Maginot Line fortifications near the town of Sospel in the Maritime Alps. L'Agaisen and Saint-Roch are middle-sized Alpine gros ouvrages. The garrison of L'Agaisen numbered about 300 officers and men while Saint-Roch had a garrison of just over 200. The ouvrages of L'Agaisen have been depicted uncovered to show their positions more clearly. Fort Barbonnet was built in the 1880s. Its primary armament consists of two turrets, also dating from the 1880s, each armed with two 155mm guns. The turrets were renovated in the 1930s and incorporated into the Maginot Line programme defences. The small Maginot Line gros ouvrage of Barbonnet was also built on the hilltop adjacent to the fort. The distance from the L'Agaisen to Fort Barbonnet is about 3km. The majority of the casemate-mounted artillery in this area fires generally north or south along the line of the ouvrages, but the 75mm gun and two of the 81mm mortars in block 4 of Saint-Roch fire to the east over Sospel. They defend the valley to the east of the town through which runs a road from Italy. This section of the Maginot Line was involved in the fighting against the Italians in 1940 with Fort Barbonnet's two turrets proving to be particularly effective (С.42)

Лист 9. A plan showing the overlapping potential fields of fire of the close-in defences of the combat block area of the gros ouvrage of Michelsberg. The twin machine guns and anti-tank gun of the infantry casemate block at the right and the cloche-mounted twin machine gun at the bottom fire along the line of obstacles (not shown) connecting the works together. The plan does not reflect dead ground, but in general care was taken during construction to avoid dead ground to the maximum extent possible (С.46)

Лист 10. The Arrancy subsector, Metz Fortified Region. The French Army dispositions are those in May 1940, just prior to the opening of the 1940 campaign. Units of the 51st Infantry Division supported the fortress troops assigned to the subsector. By the time the area came under sustained German attack in mid-June, the 51st Infantry Division and the mobile fortress troops had been withdrawn. This made it possible for German army units to move through the small gap in the Maginot Line to the west of Longuyon, between it and the start of the Montmedy Bridgehead, and to attack the fortifications of the Arrancy subsector from the rear (С.50)

Лист 2. A Bird's Eye View of the Defensive System. By contrast with the Maginot Line, the defences of the Siegfried Line were built on the concept of defence in depth. The idea had been developed in the First World War and was now adopted for Hitler's impregnable West Wall. The attacker would be drawn further and further into the thick band of pillboxes. Their progress would be slowed or stopped completely allowing Germany time to mobilise her reserves and repel the invader. Bunkers that could mount both anti-tank weapons and machine guns and which could house a small detachment of soldiers were constructed all along Germany's western border. They were constructed in such a way that the fire from one shelter covered the approaches to another. At particularly weak points the defences were some miles deep. Where the terrain was suitable for the movement of tanks, anti-tank defences were constructed - usually the so-called dragon's teeth (С.23)

Лист 3. The Gerstfeldhohe Tunnel System at Niedersimten. The Gerstfeldhohe tunnel system at Niedersimten, near Pirmasens, was planned to be a key defensive installation of the West Wall. A series of interconnected bunkers and pillboxes were to be constructed that would dominate the Trulben valley which was a natural avenue of attack from France. These positions in turn were to be linked by a 68m high elevator shaft to a further tunnel system that provided a safe haven for both the personnel and ammunition. A light railway was planned to run from the entrance at Niedersimten to the lift while another linked up the various fighting positions. By the time construction work was suspended following the defeat of France around three million Reichsmarks had been spent on the project. Work was restarted in 1944 but only on a very limited scale. Its main wartime contribution was to act as an air raid shelter for local residents and after the war served as a depot for US Army stores. Today the Gerstfeldhohe is home to the Westwall Museum. One thousand metres of tunnels are open to the public with write-ups and exhibits (С.42)

Лист 3. Allied and Axis lines of communication. Following the acquisition of a North African empire in the early years of the 20th century, Italian north-south communications with Libya were potentially threatened by British possession of Malta. This potential was realised following the outbreak of hostilities between Italy and Britain in 1940. The opposite was also true as British and Allied communications with Malta were at peril due to Italian and Axis interdiction. Shown here are the salient elements of this two-way battle of attrition conducted on both sides by sea and air. The materiel advantage lay with the Allies, who could draw on neutral shipping and US industrial resources (С.51)

Лист 4. Operation Herkules. The operation to capture Malta was supposed to commence with an airdrop, at reinforced battalion strength, securing the coastline between Wied iz-Zurrieq and Ghar Lapsi. This assault force was to be dispatched in gliders at dawn and approach the south coast of Malta from the west, with the aim of establishing a bridgehead and, if possible, capturing the airfield close by at Hal Far. Close air support would be provided by the 'flying artillery' of the Luftwaffe and Regia Aeronautica. With the bridgehead secured, the second phase was to commence with the amphibious landing onto the beaches of elements of La Spezia and the panzer regiment. Simultaneously, the entire remaining parachute complement of the force was to drop in the area south of the twin cities of Mdina/Rabat, moving on to capture them as soon as possible. The third phase would begin with the force in the bridgehead striking eastwards with the object of either consolidating, or indeed capturing if this had not been achieved, Hal Far airfield and taking the smaller strip at Safi. The ultimate objective of this thrust was the harbour at Birzebuggar. In co-ordination with this manoeuvre, the paratroops were to spread out from the Mdina/Rabat area and move north-east towards Ta'Qali and south-east to Luqa airfield to prevent Allied use of the airfields. The reserve mountain division could be airlifted into Hal Far and Safi airfields, provided of course that they had been captured. Phase four was to start with the remaining elements of La Spezia landing at Birzebuggar and then all components were to advance on Valletta. La Spezia and the armour from the south, whilst the airborne troops were to strike from the west towards Sliema. The intention was for these forces to join up at Floriana and cut off Valletta. Once Valletta was taken the operation was considered to be over (С.55)

Лист 1. One of several maps prepared by OKW for Operation Sealion showing the shorter landings front of September 1940 between Worthing and Folkestone. Shipping movements are shown from the French and Low Country ports. Note the blue paratrooper symbol to indicate airborne landings around Dover (С.7)

Лист 2. The land and air defences of Britain, 1940-42. Each Army Command was empowered to work out their local system of defences, and it can be seen that there are variations in the grouping of the stop-lines. The lines would often follow river or canal systems. The primary purpose was to delay the movement of the enemy, especially his armoured formations, to gain time to muster reserves, and to protect London, major ports and the Midlands manufacturing area. Late in 1940, additional Army commands were created. During the Battle of Britain, RAF Fighter Command was split into four Groups, shown here, each of which was split into sectors. The principle early-warning Chain Home radar stations, so vital in the early part of the war, are also shown (С.14)

Лист 3. Тактические примеры. Defending an AT island (С.22-23)

Лист 4. The 15in. No.1 gun 'Jane', Wanstone Battery, Kent. The 15in. naval gun 'Jane' (A) was one of two huge guns emplaced at Wanstone Farm (near St Margaret's-at-Cliffe, Kent) in spring 1942: the other was No.2 gun 'Clem', set c. 400m away. The combined firepower of these two weapons, together with the other locally-sited guns Winnie and Pooh, contributed to the cross-Channel duel with the German guns on Cap Gris Nez. The inset map (B) shows the ranges and locations of the guns: Clem and Jane could only dominate the Channel (max range 36,900 yds normal charge, 42,000 yds super charge) whereas Winne and Pooh's 14in. guns had a longer reach (47,250 yds). The guns were manned by the Royal Artillery 540th Coast Regiment. The No.l (C) and No.2 (D) ammunition magazines were protected with earthen covers. The gun had a dedicated power plant (E) next to it: the battery command post (not shown) lay further back. The guns were protected by four 3.7in. HAA guns (F): the command post for the HAA guns is at (G). Air raid shelters were also located in this area. Behind Jane's gun house lay an armoured crane, and a locker for live shells was to the left under a camouflage net supported by concrete pillars (H). The gun was fired from a platform on the right hand side of the gun house. A further inset (I) shows Jane in closer view (some of the camouflage has been removed for clarity). The Wanstone battery was eventually dismantled in 1957 (С.27)

Лист 5. Coastal defences at Aldeburgh, Suffolk 1942. This illustration shows the layout of a typical 'Emergency Battery' position and defended beachhead in 1942. The battery comprises a pair of 6in. coast defence guns (No.1 Gun is at A, and No.2 Gun is at B), which cover the approaches to the beach. Considerable thought was given to the camouflage of coast artillery positions. Often a false roof would be built on top of the gun house and a canvas screen, painted to represent the front of a building, could be drawn across the front and secured with pegs, as shown in the inset image (K). To prevent the gun's shadow giving itself away, it would often be moved to lie parallel with the front of the gun house. The men of the battery were billeted in the hotel next to the No.2 Gun. The guns formed part of an integrated system of anti-invasion defences. Along the beach and behind the battery and observation post (F), tubular scaffolding has been erected to hinder both landings by boat and troop movements (C). Anti-tank cubes form the next level of protection (D), with concertina barbed wire laid behind them. Naval mines have also been buried in the beach (E). Two coast artillery searchlights illuminate the seaward approaches at night (No.l is at G, and No.2 is at H). The beach is also protected by a pillbox (I), and also by several Spigot Mortar positions close to the guns. An inset (J) shows the interior of the observation post for the battery, complete with a depression position finder, spotting binoculars and transmitting dial (С.30)

Лист 6. 5.25in. HAA battery, London, 1943. This battery, located on Primrose Hill in North London, was one of only three twin-5.25in. HAA emplacements in Britain. These guns were diverted from Navy contracts and were obtained in an exchange for Bofors LAA guns. By the time they became operational in 1943, however, the threat from the Luftwaffe had greatly diminished. The 5.25in. gun (A) has a power plant next to it (B), and camouflage nets to disguise its concrete base (C). To the left of the main gun is a concrete holdfast (D) for a 3.7in. HAA gun, one of the earlier guns on the site, covered by a camouflage screen. In the battery Command Post (E), ATS personnel would operate the heightfinder (F), spotting binoculars (G), and the predictor (H). An inset (I) shows the layout of a 1941 -pattern HAA command post, different to the CP in the main illustration: key features include a Lewis gun (i), heightfinder (ii), predictor (iii), plotting room (iv) and emergency exits (v). A further inset (J) shows the location of the overall site, looking down on London (С.34)

Лист 7. The Cabinet War Rooms, London. The fear of the mass-bombing of British cities lead in the late-1930s to the provision of bomb-proof accommodation for the members of British central government. In June 1938 work began on reinforcing the basement of the Office of Works building in Whitehall, London, the exterior of which is shown in the inset illustration. The building itself was a strong one and it was conveniently situated between the Houses of Parliament and 10 Downing Street, the home of the British Prime Minister. A 3ft-thick concrete and steel 'slab' (1) was installed over the basement of the building, together with a sub-layer of interlocking steel beams (2). The weight of this structure was supported by timber and brick props and pillars in the basement and sub-basement. At the heart of the underground complex lay the Cabinet Room (3): in May 1940 Churchill declared: 'This is the room from which I will direct the war'. During the course of the war over 100 meetings of the War Cabinet were held here. In addition to the main Cabinet Room, other areas contained secretarial offices, canteens, dormitories, Churchill's bedroom and a Map Room. Much of the facility is now open to the public (С.55)

Лист 1. The German ‘elastic defence’ concept (С.6)

Лист 2. Тактические примеры. This squad battle trench (Kampfgraben) and approach trench (Annaherungsgraben) depicts the different positions incorporated into it: Schutzenloch fur 2 Schutzen (rifle position for 2 riflemen), Stichgraben (slit trench), Schutzennischen (fire steps), M.G.-Feuerstellung (machine-gun firing position), Unterstand (squad bunker), Schutzenausstieg (exit ladder or steps), Unterschlupf (dugout). Note that the feindwarts arrow points in the direction of the enemy (С.8)

Лист 3. Тактические примеры. A rifle platoon in defensive position, early war. An early-war rifle platoon (Zug) defensive position is depicted here with all three squads (Gruppe, labelled A, B and C) deployed on line. 19 two-man rifle positions (1) are used. It was intended that the squad light machine guns (2) be positioned to cover the entire platoon front without gaps, but this was not always possible. Alternate machine-gun positions may have been prepared to cover gaps as well as the flanks and the gaps between adjacent platoons. Time permitting, some scattered rifle and one or two light machine-gun positions may have been dug in the rear and oriented in that direction (3). On this type of terrain the positions were typically at 10m intervals, less in densely wooded terrain. In some exceptional circumstances one squad may have been deployed to the rear, oriented forward, to provide depth to the position. If the platoon had four squads one would normally be deployed in the rear. The platoon's 5cm light mortar (4) is positioned to the rear, but in a place where it could observe its target area, as it had no observers. A 3.7cm anti-armour gun (5) and two heavy machine-gun squads (6) have been attached to the platoon along with an anti-armour rifle troop (7). The forward perimeter and flanks are protected by a double-apron barbed wire fence (a 'Flanders fence', 8) some 30-50m from the positions, keeping the troops beyond hand-grenade range. Sods of earth for camouflaging the positions have been removed in the rear from beneath trees and brush (9). The Zugfurher's (10) and Zug-Truppfuhrer's (11) positions are also indicated. An observation or listening post (12) is located to the front of the platoon, beyond the wire fence. The large red arrow (feindwarts) indicates the direction towards the enemy (С.14)

Лист 4. Тактические примеры. A road junction strongpoint in Germany made conspicuous by the straight anti-armour ditches (A-D). The hedge-lined roads are blocked by anti-armour mines. Fighting trenches (E) are located in each quadrant of the road intersection. A 7.5cm infantry gun (F) is positioned in a hedgerow and a 2cm flak gun (G), also positioned to engage ground targets, is beside the intersection (С.15)

Лист 5. Тактические примеры. Defence of a village, north-west Europe. Villages were extremely irregular in pattern and layout, making the organisation of the defence, the selection of strongpoints, the positioning of crew-served weapons, and the placement of obstacles as difficult for the defender to determine as for the attacker to predict. There were endless possibilities. Light defences and observation posts were positioned on the village's outskirts. In this example, significant anti-armour defences are positioned on the outer edge to the left to blunt an expected tank penetration. These anti-armour guns would have alternate positions deeper in the village. Most strongpoints are located well within the village and machine gunners and snipers (in reality selected riflemen) are scattered through the village to disrupt and delay the attackers. Mortars and infantry guns are positioned to fire on all main approaches and they too have alternate positions in the event of the attacker approaching them. The strongpoints consist of interconnected defended groups of barricaded buildings with concealed firing positions, reinforced cellars and mouse holes connecting buildings. Two of the main roads through the village are left unblocked to allow attacking tanks to enter killing zones within the village. Anti-armour guns repositioned from the outer defence line to the left will cover these. The reserve platoon is located at A. Strongpoints are shown enclosed within red lines (С.18)

Лист 6. Hedgerow defences, Normandy, 1944. The feint lines represent the hedgerows and the double broken lines are sunken roads. This c. 300m x 800m company area was self-contained and could fend off attacks from any direction. Note that the buildings were undefended, as they attracted artillery fire. If the perimeter were penetrated, troops would move to the flanking hedgerows to engage the attackers. There were several clusters of positions located in adjacent hedgerows on all sides of this area (С.19)

Лист 7. 2cm flank gun position (С.38)

Лист 8. Тактические примеры. A squad strongpoint in the desert. Because of the need to defend wide frontages in the desert and the expansive fields of observation and fire, German units often built self-contained, widely scattered, reinforced squad strongpoints. An ideal example is shown here. The weapons positions and dugouts were to be at least 6m apart along the 40-60m zig-zag trench. One- and two-man rifle positions (1) were set 1-2m forward of the trench. Firing steps might be used, including on the trench's rear side. Not all such strongpoints had an 8cm mortar (2). A 2cm flak gun may have been substituted for the 3.7cm or 5cm anti-armour gun (3, shown above scale for clarity). Some strongpoints may have had two machine guns, one at each end (4 and 5). Lacking a flak gun, one of the machine guns (5) would be provided with an air-defence mount as well as an alternative position for ground fire. This combination of weapons provided the strongpoint with direct and indirect anti-personnel fire, direct anti-armour fire and air defence. Sufficient dugouts and small bunkers (6, hidden) were available for all personnel. Such a strongpoint might be manned by 16-24 troops. It would be sighted on any piece of high ground, even if only a couple of metres above the surrounding desert. Camouflage nets might have been used. The barbed-wire barrier (7), if present, was erected c. 50m from the strongpoint. Anti-armour mines would be emplaced outside the barbed wire along with some anti-personnel mines (8). The listening post (9), accessed via a crawl trench, was manned at night to guard against infiltration. Flare pistols were used to signal other strongpoints and command posts that a strongpoint was under attack, with coloured flare combinations identifying the type of attack and direction. The large red arrow (feindwarts) indicates the direction towards the enemy (С.46)

Лист 9. [Обозначения] Тактические примеры. Infantry battalion defence sector. A full-strength infantry battalion normally deployed for defence with two companies forward on its 800-2,000m front. The positions of the heavy machine guns and mortars of the battalion machine-gun company (4th) are depicted along with the four 3.7cm anti-armour guns and two 7.5cm infantry guns attached from the regiment. Each platoon position (Zugspitze) contains three light machine guns and a 5cm mortar. Medical posts and ammunition points are located near each company command post. In this instance the 1st Company on the left has two platoons (1/1 and 2/1) deployed on the main battle line (Hauptkampflinie) with the 3rd Platoon (3/1) in outposts (Vorposten). It would withdraw to a reserve position behind 1/1 and 2/1 blocking the main road through the company sector. The 2nd Company on the right has its 3rd Platoon (3/2) also in an outpost position. It, however, would withdraw to a position on key terrain forward of 1/2 and 2/2. When forced to withdraw from that position it would occupy a reverse slope reserve position behind 1/2 and 2/2. The 3rd Company is positioned as the battalion reserve across the rear area. It can remain in position to block a breakthrough or conduct counter-attacks. The regimental boundary is shown by the 'III' line; the battalion boundary by the 'II' line; and the company boundary by the 'I' line. Contour lines for the terrain are also provided (С.51)

Лист 10. Тактические примеры. A company hilltop strongpoint. Stutzpunkt Zuckerhutl was typical of the company strongpoints in the far north of Finland in 1944. It was surrounded by two parallel double-apron barbed-wire fences with anti-personnel mines. A firing trench revetted with rock and mortar ran around the entire perimeter with communications trenches connected to support positions in the centre. The defenders were a 1st Mountain Infantry Regiment, 2nd Mountain Division rifle company reinforced with a pioneer platoon, crew-served weapons from the battalion, and artillery forward observers. They were armed with 13 light and 8 heavy machine guns, two 8cm mortars, two 3.7cm anti-armour guns and two 7.5cm infantry guns, the normal allocation of weapons from the battalion heavy companies and the regimental anti-armour company. Two-man firing positions and machine-gun bunkers lined the perimeter. The reason for the apparently irregular spacing of these positions is their siting to cover the approaches across broken terrain. Troops were quartered in various support bunkers and two-squad bunkers. Note that the command post is on the forward perimeter enabling the commander to directly observe the enemy. The large red arrow indicates the direction towards the enemy (feindwarts) (С.58)

Лист 11. Westwall defences, Germany, October 1944. The 1,100m2 area shown lies immediately to the south of Palenberg. The moated Rimburg Castle, to the centre left, was heavily defended, as was the large farm complex to the upper right of the castle. The Wurm River flows through the upper left area - itself an obstacle with its bridges blown. The double railroad tracks were on an elevated embankment, which was incorporated into the defences to form an anti-armour obstacle. Where the embankment is low an anti-armour ditch was built (the heavy grey line in the lower left). The end of a second-line anti-armour ditch is visible in the lower right corner. Ten concrete bunkers within this square covered the railroad embankment and anti-armour ditch, and a further one is shown covering the second-line anti-armour ditch. Some six or so rifle, machine-gun and Panzerschreck positions were dug around these bunkers, with some of them connected by trenches (С.59)

Лист 12. Тактические примеры. The defences of a German town annotated by US aerial photo interpreters. Warehouses are located on the left edge above a railway yard. A row of houses stretches to the right of the warehouses and more dwellings can be seen in the lower right. The continuous, barbed-wire protected, first-line trench stretches across the photo's top with machine guns positioned in pairs. A position containing three 2cm Flak guns is in the upper right. Communications trenches run to the rear: these also served as flanking-fire trenches in the event of an Allied penetration of the first line. The second trench line covers the anti-tank ditch and it was from here that counter-attacks would be launched. The anti-tank ditch is linked to the row of houses and the warehouses, which probably have strongpoints located within some of the buildings. There were also probably mines and anti-armour obstacles blocking passages between buildings. Oddly, mortar positions are located forward of the second line (С.60)

Лист 1. The Schlieffen Plan of 1914 was designed to envelop Paris from the north-east, but determined resistance from the Belgian, British and French armies disrupted the strategy and it faltered on the Marne and Yser Rivers resulting in four years of ghastly trench warfare. In 1940, the Germans lured the British and French mobile forces into Belgium. They then unleashed the 'Sichelschnitt' or 'sweep of the scythe' to split the Allied armies and precipitate the fall of France in just 42 days (С.7)

Лист 2. The diagram shows the location of the various forts of the Position Fortifiee de Liege at the outbreak of World War II. The circles around the various major fortresses represent the ranges of their respective artillery weapons, with the 120mm guns of Fort Eben Emael reaching almost to the German border. The inner circle indicates the range of the 75mm guns, while the innermost one is of the 81mm mortars.

Лист 1. The general location of the Channel Islands in relation to the UK and France meant that any hostile power holding the French mainland, and equipped with a powerful air force, could dominate the Islands and interdict their lines of communication with the UK. Such was the situation in 1940 following the armistice between France and Nazi Germany (С.6)

Лист 6. This diagram shows the range, and interlocking/overlapping effects of the fire, of the coastal artillery based on the Channel Islands. It can be readily seen that the northern entrance to the Gulf of St Malo was effectively interdicted by these weapons, as was much of the coastline along the Cotentin Peninsula (С.22)

Лист 7. The defences at Vazon Bay, Guernsey, are, in a similar manner to all the coastal defences in the Channel Islands, somewhat reminiscent of the long-obsolete 'bastioned trace'. Bastions were constructed to project forward from the main line of defence with the object of subjecting an attacker to cross, or enfilade, fire. The works on the headlands, it can be seen, fulfilled exactly the same purpose, and any attacker attempting to land on the beach would have been subjected to an intense crossfire from a variety of weapons (С.26)

Лист 1. Тактические примеры. An anti-tank ditch. Anti-tank ditches provided an effective, although labour-intensive, means of halting or delaying enemy tanks. However, they also provided cover to attacking enemy infantry. Several methods were used to deny the enemy this cover. The ditches were dug close to the forward fighting positions, allowing heavy and accurate fire to be laid. Mortar fire was registered on the ditches. Barbed wire was placed in front of the ditches and sometimes behind them. Anti-personnel mines were sometimes placed inside or before ditches along with booby traps. Light machine-gun or rifle/submachine-gun positions were built into the ditches' sides at angles. To protect the blind-to-the-surface positions inside the ditch, rifle positions were placed forward of the main trench line. The ditches were also covered by interlocking machine-gun fire. Covered trenches sometimes linked the ditch positions and their forward covering positions to the main trenches (С.10)

Лист 2. The construction of a section trench. A section trench system was built in five stages, over the course of 4-5 days. Stage 1: individual fighting positions were prepared approximately 3-4m apart with the two-man light machine-gun (LMG) position in the centre (marked with large rod arrows here). Stages 2 and 3: the fighting positions were improved and connected by a crawl trench, with each man working towards the LMG. Stage 3 saw the trench deepened, an exit trench prepared, and 'reserve firing positions' created to engage targets to the rear or flanks. Stage 4: the firing positions were further improved with covered embrasures, ammunition niches were dug, and reserve firing positions were prepared in the ends of the trench and along the communications trench. The latter ran to the rear to connect to trenches that linked the platoon's other sections. Stage 5: dugouts were prepared in the forward trench, trench sections were covered, drainage sumps were added, a 4-5m extension was added to the shelter trench and covered (note escape exit), and other refinements were made throughout. Some 30-50m to the rear (shown nearer here) a 4-5m-long slit trench was dug off the communications trench (С.42)

Лист 3. Completed and improved section trench. The completely developed section trench system often included short trench extensions dug forward from the main trench. Ammunition niches would be dug into the sides of some of these. The section trench could be linked to other section trenches within the platoon via communications trenches in the rear, or the section's forward trenches could be linked end-to-end. If time and materials were available more trench sections would be covered or camouflage nets/mesh erected over all sections. Barbed-wire obstacles would be some 40m forward, outside of hand-grenade range. The lower left inset shows a covered firing embrasure. The centre right inset shows a section view of the LMG bunker (С.43)

Лист 1. Airborne operations in North Africa, 1942-43. North Africa, where the Parachute Regt. earned nine of its 28 World War II battle-honours. Tamera, the site of one of their hardest engagements, lies between Sedjenane and “Beggar’s Bump” (С.7)

Лист 2. Sicily, July 1943. The scale is deceptive. The scatter of parachutists extended from the Primosole Bridge DZ as far as Adrano and Mt. Etna some 30 miles away (С.11)

Лист 3. Normandy, 6 June 1944: DZs (drop zones) and LZs (landing zones) marked here are mainly notional - the drops were widely scattered, and only the coup de main party at “Pegasus Bridge” went in as planned (С.17)

Лист 4. The battle of Arnhem. DZs and LZs of 1st Airborne Div.: it is easy, with hindsight, to see how much better off the division would have been if they had been dropped to the south and east of the two road bridges (immediately north of DZ “K” on this map) (С.24)

Лист 5. Operation “Varsity” was a complete success, despite heavy casualties, and the arrival of part of the US 513th Parachute Infantry on the 12th Devon’s LZ. The crossings at Wesel and to the north-east of Xanten had already been secured by the time the drop was supposed to go in (С.32)

Лист 1. Civil defence regions. Mainland Great Britain was divided into 12 Civil Defence Regions, with manpower and assets provided as required depending on the local industrial or military targets. London was the smallest region, allowing a concentration of assets in the heavily bombed capital; Scotland was the largest and least targeted, since it was threatened only by the four Luftwaffe twin-engined bomber Gruppen based in Scandinavia, which seldom ventured across the broad expanse of the North Sea, while 35 Gruppen were based in northern France and the Low Countries. The National Fire Service would be divided in a similar, although not geographically identical manner (С.6)

The Japanese planners had expected the Allied troops to stand and fight for the southern beach positions, Koepang and the airfield, as Japanese soldiers would have done. They had not anticipated that the defenders, once outflanked by the amphibious landings, would withdraw and maneuver to meet the advancing paratroopers. At Manado paratroopers had jumped directly on to the airfield, resulting in excessive casualties. At Koepang, in an effort to avoid a repeat, they jumped too far from the objective, and the unexpected Allied reaction and dense jungle prevented them from accomplishing their mission (С.26)

World War II Jungle Warfare Tactics. Dr. Stephen Bull. Osprey Publishing, 2007

___________________________________________________________

Лист 1. Тактические примеры. Japanese tactics for a battalion night attack (up the page), when the objectives were usually less ambitious than during daylight, although the attack would be preceded by a period of infiltration to neutralize the enemy response. Two companies are tasked with seizing the first objective, the fresh third and fourth companies passing through them. Individual platoons within the companies remain in loose columns unless resistance dictates otherwise, and one platoon is kept back as reserve. (From the US Handbook on Japanese Military Forces) (С.9)

Лист 2. A Japanese plan showing a variation on the 'scorpion manoeuvre' as used at the battle of Kampar, Malaya, 30 December 1941 - 2 January 1942. The advance is in two main columns, one of which engages the 15th Indian Bde frontally, while the 42nd 'Ando' Regt follows the course of the railway through the jungle to emerge in the Allied rear (С.13)

Лист 3. Тактические примеры. The Japanese use of flanking columns at infantry division level, as depicted in the US Handbook on Japanese Military Forces. The 'left' and 'right' detachments might be several miles either side of the main body, and might advance a similar distance beyond (С.14)

Лист 5. Тактические примеры. British battalion defence, from Forest, Bush, and Jungle Warfare Against a Modern Enemy, published in August 1942. The deployment is as a series of platoon positions across the front, covering the jungle as well as the road. Small mobile reserves are kept to counter-attack infiltration or outflank the enemy (С.22)

Лист 6. Тактические примеры. A scheme for a British infantry brigade defence, as outlined in Forest, Bush, and Jungle Warfare..., August 1942. It shows the company locations of the forward left-hand battalion fending off a Japanese secondary probe, while the main enemy effort hits the forward right-hand battalion with the usual two-prong enveloping attack. The lessons of six months beforehand have already been learnt: the two forward battalions hold their ground, while the reserve battalion deploys with artillery support to meet the 'scorpion's tail' (С.23)

Лист 7. Тактические примеры. 'Automatic defence': a diagram showing how an Australian platoon was supposed to react on coming under attack, if it had no other orders. Each section has a scout well forward on a flank; the section leaders are in close touch with their LMG groups, and the rest of the section personnel are spread out behind in support. The diameter of the whole position was not to exceed 150 yards. (Australian 6th Division instructions, 1943) (С.26)

Лист 8. Тактические примеры. 'Automatic defence' schemes for an Australian company. The whole position could be up to 300 yards across, allowing platoons to be up to 100 yards apart, and sections up to 50 yards. The left-hand scheme gives each platoon its own reserve section; the right-hand scheme gives the company commander a whole platoon in reserve. (Australian 6th Division instructions, 1943) (С.26)

Open areas are covered by fire, but many of the bunkers and trenches are sited in woodland and jungle, and grouped for mutual support. The density of the bunker system at Cape Endaiadere is apparent. A trench dug across the old airstrip, bottom left, denies its use to the Allies (С.51)

Лист 2. Тактические примеры. Taking out bunkers on the Siegfried Line, September 1944. This illustration shows the stages and principles of how to clear German bunkers and pillboxes on the Siegfried Line (West Wall), and is set on the borders of Germany in the fall of 1944. The Americans are attacking a section of large bunkers, and will remove the Germans from there. The four stages shown are as follows. 1. The Americans suppress and smoke the bunkers using an M4 Sherman, while infantrymen accompanied by an M10 tank destroyer attack in a narrow column until they are behind the bunker. 2. The M10 tank destroyer fires point blank at the rear door or aperture until a breach is made. There is now smoke/dust pouring from the front of the first bunker where the M4 tank shell has hit. The infantry have their rifles trained on the bunker, to cover exiting Germans. The Sherman M4 tank fires on another concrete bunker at the front. 3. A soldier with a flamethrower advances, first firing unlit naphtha through the openings and then firing a burning blast, either smoking out or killing the Germans within. Other infantrymen from the first squad of men stay under cover. 4. The M4 Sherman ceases firing against the second bunker, as US troops are now behind it. The M10 tank destroyer and the 1st rifle squad now move to the rear of the recently blasted 2nd bunker. Once again, they try to stay under cover. The second rifle squad of 12 soldiers maneuvers around the destroyed bunker to attack another one (F)

Лист 3. Тактические примеры. Squad defensive positions 1942 and 1944. The top half shows the rifle squad defensive positions in 1942: a squad of men would lay themselves out so and dig their foxholes to defend against enemy attack. The bottom half shows the rifle squad defensive positions in 1944: note the different layout. Early doctrine recommended individual foxholes because they were harder targets to hit and did not collapse as easily as larger two-person foxholes when shelled or driven over by tanks. Later leaders found that although this was true, the isolation of a soldier in a foxhole negated all advantages, so opted for larger two- and three-man positions, in which one soldier could sleep while the other pulled guard (H)

Хронология (С.5-6)

Лист 1. Japanese vs. USMC Tanks, Parry Island (Eniwetok), 1100, 22 February 1944. The first standup fight between USMC and Japanese tanks fell to the men of the 2d Separate Tank Company on Parry Island in the Eniwetok Atoll. Three Type 95 light tanks charged the beachhead, much to the surprise of all, but they were quickly overwhelmed by the firepower of USMC M4A2 tanks (С.6)

Лист 2. Japanese Tank Assault, Saipan, 0400, 17 June 1944. The Japanese tank assault on Saipan, the largest encountered in the Pacific war, fell upon the lines of the 6th Marine Regiment and its supporting tanks of B Company, 2d Tank Battalion. Poor light and fear of causing friendly casualties prevented the USMC tanks from destroying more than a portion of the tanks, leaving the rest to the weapons of the 6th Marines (С.48)

Лист 3. Japanese Counterattack, Peleliu, 1650, 15 September 1944. The Japanese tank attack at Peleliu surprised the attacking Marine Corps battalions, and the commander of the 1st Tank Battalion surmised that the Japanese commander must have thought the USMC tanks had not been landed. Two platoons of M4A2 tanks, one on the beach and another advancing across the airfield, proved more than equal to the task (С.50)

Лист 4. Tank Assault, Battle of Tenaru, 1600, 21 August 1942. The Battle of Tenaru saw the only clear success by USMC tanks in the Guadalcanal Campaign. The Ichiki Detachment had rashly crossed the Tenaru River to attack the lines of the 1st Marine Regiment, drawn up on the shore of the Ilu River. The Japanese were hemmed in against the shore and laced by fire from infantry, mortars, and artillery. The four M2A4 tanks administered the coup de grace (С.62)
