    Hallo Armin,
    sehr Gerne!
    Die schlacht von Livergnano und die in Monte Grande waren die letzte Versuch der Allierten der Grüne-Linie zu durchbrechen: hier die Wehrmacht kämpfte hartknäckig und gelang mit schwere Verluste die Allierten zu halten.
    Die Allierten mußten die nächste April 1945 warten um zu Bologna zu erreichen.


    Nächste Woche werde ich in Florenz zu Hause sein. Dort habe ich den Buch der 91. ID (us), ich werde nach mehrere Informationen suchen.
    Dann: ich habe gesehen, dass ein Bibliothek hier in Bologna den Buch der 65. ID hat. Ich werde auch hier durchsuchen.

    Hallo Armin,
    wirklich interessante Urkunde. 12. November 1944: ich wurde Livergnano-Schlacht (10-15 Oktober 1944) sage.



    Aus dem Seite Custermen: https://www.custermen.com/Ital…s/Division91.htm#Chapter5



    The Livergnano Escarpment {See Map II Corps Attack on Livergano Escarpment for Oct 1 - 15}
    The Division had come to the most formidable natural barrier between the Santerno and the Po, a rocky escarpment rising at some points over 1,800 feet high. In places, especially in the upper half of the cliff, it is a perpendicular rock wall. From the rock rim the enemy commanded every approach from the south. Rising above the rim was a lateral series of hills: 544 and 603, dominating Highway 65; 504, 481, 592, and 487. Each one was a prepared strong point from which the high plateau lying behind the rock rim could be covered with machine gun and mortar fire. As the Division faced this escarpment it was considerably in advance of its adjacent units, exposed on the right to fire from S. Maria di Zena and M. delle Formiche and on the left to fire directed from M. Adone. {Livergnano was referred to by the GI's as "Liver 'n Onions".}
    Only two breaks in the wall existed by which the plateau could be reached. One lay just north of Bigallo and the other was a cut at Livergnano through which Highway 65 runs. Accordingly the 2nd Battalion, 361st Infantry was ordered to move east to the cut north of Bigallo, make its way over this escarpment and then move westward to seize in succession Hills 592, 504 and 481. On the left, the 1st Battalion was ordered to attack Livergnano and neutralize its twin sentinels, Hills 544 and 603.
    The fighting of the next few days was the most grinding and heartbreaking the 91st Division has ever known. On the right the 2nd Battalion started up the cut north of Bigallo. There was no trail at this point, but it was possible by sheer scaling and climbing to reach the plateau. Riflemen slung their rifles over their shoulders and “hung and crawled with their fingers and toes." The machine gunners disassembled their weapons and each squad member carried parts in his pockets or pack. At one point on the way, Companies E and C had to cross a narrow ledge which the enemy had zeroed in. Only by running a few men across at a time did the companies clear the obstacle and make their way forward.
    "Little Cassino"
    On the left Company K entered Livergnano only to be caught in a trap. Herded by the bands of fire of cunningly placed machine guns, the company was trapped in a building which the Germans then systematically demolished by point-blank tank fire. Despite desperate attempts by other companies to fight their way to them, and by the full power of the artillery to blast the enemy out of the town, only a few of the company escaped to tell their story. Livergnano became a blazing inferno shelled from both sides. Companies A and C fought a see-saw battle up Hill 554 while Company B inched its way grimly up Hill 603.
    Once on top of the escarpment near Casole, Companies E and C were fired on and the companies deployed to engage the enemy. While the fight was ill progress the enemy infiltrated around the flanks under cover of darkness, foliage and terrain features, and the companies found themselves located at the bottom of a "tilted saucer" with high ground completely surrounding them and the enemy occupying positions all along this high ground. To assist the push on the right General Livesay ordered the 363rd Infantry committed on the right. Slowly the Regiment fought its way forward, cleaning out pockets of resistance before Bigallo and at Ca Parma and Ca Parisi. During the night of 11 - 12 October, the 1st Battalion scaled the escarpment and reinforced the two companies virtually isolated on the rock rim.
    While the infantry fought savagely on the ground, the artillery and the air support blasted enemy strong points. The artillery fired 8,400 rounds of all types, most of them in an arc about Livergnano. This artillery power was augmented by position firing by tank destroyers. These blasted the caves and houses of Livergnano and machine gun and mortar emplacements. In the air medium bombers attacked bridges and supply dumps, while fighter bombers flew 250 sorties against troop concentrations and gun areas.
    On the Top
    For the attack at 0600, 13 October the artillery laid down a tremendous concentration of 2,120 rounds in 16 minutes. There was better progress all across the Division front during the day, and it became clear that the enemy had at last begun to withdraw under the steady pounding they had received from the bombers, the artillery, and the infantry. Gradually the whole line fell back. Hills 603 and 544 were taken and Livergnano occupied, despite the continued shelling. The 2nd Battalion slowly fought its way northwest, cleaning out the positions along the rim of the escarpment. It rejoined the rest of the 361st Infantry on Highway 65 north of Livergnano. The 363rd Infantry fanned out from the east cut and occupied the right sector of the Division front.
    Thus at the end of the day, the lines had been straightened and the flanks secured. With Casolina on the left, Querceta on the right and Hill 603 in the center in the Division's hands, the enemy line, referred to by many of the captured prisoners as the Caesar Line, had been overrun and the escarpment had been conquered. Enemy casualties had been heavy, and many prisoners had been taken--225 on 12-13 October.

    Hallo Jason,
    leider ich kann dir nicht mit der Unterschrift helfen.


    Aus der Lexikon:


    Das Reserve-Lazarett Gottleuba war in der Heilstätte der LVA Sachsen in Gottleuba untergebracht. Es war ein Genesungslazarett und gehörte zur Sanitätsabteilung Dresden. Im November 1940 hatte es eine Kapazität von 440 Betten. Dazu kam das Teillazarett Berggießhübel in den dortigen Kneipkurhäusern mit nochmals 180 Betten.


    Dennoch ein schöne Urkunde. Ich finde immer Interessant auch die Lazarett: die Orten, die Geschichte den Strukturen usw

    Hallo Austria,
    es wäre für mich auch die andere Dokumente zu sehen.
    Hier aus der DHI. Die "Unterabschnitt A" war im Raum Belluno. NVM steht für Namentliche Verlustmeldungen: Wahrscheinlich gegen die Partisanen!
