Hi, it's Samoschje-Temkino, east of Wjasma, in the area of XX.AK commanded by Gen.Materna

I read
"Meinem lieben Kameraden
Hans-Wilhelm Carstens
Eberhard Nolte"

Is it possible that the man in the picture is Eberhard Nolte, as he gave the photo (of himself) to Hans-Wilhelm Carsten.

Hello,

I found another set of handwritten reports for the Bessarabian campaign early July 1941.
If someone could be kind enough to help me deciphering it...

On the first one (attached to this message), I read:
"Wenn Vorhut Panz. Div. (Anfang 1120 DUSCHANY) unvorsichtig Richtung LIPNIK-MOGILEW vorstösst, kann Brücke vorzeitig hochgehen. Erfolg beruht auf Überraschung, hier alles vorbereitet.
F.d.R. Bokenstedt"

Thank you.
Regards,
CNE503

Here is another one:
"Starke Einwirkung der Luftwaffe wie erbeten kann entscheidend sein. Verstärkung Artl. und 10 cm Munition nach Nordrand SAWKI.
Wo 4./818 seit 5.7. 1730 Stellung?
F.d.R. Bokenstedt"

Thank you for your help.

The third one is a bit tricky to me (not the same writter):
"Bildung eines kleinen Brückenkopfes gelungen. Gesprengte Brücken für Inf. gangbar. Feindwiderstand nicht stark rückgangige Bewegungen beobachtet. Einsatz Pz.Div. für Erweiterung angeordnet. Beschleunigt Verstärkung herschicken. Mot. Schützenregt. Kav. Korps anfordern (?). Übersetztgerät (?) grosse (?) Marschleistungen.

Thank you!

This one is also tough:
"Komp. Brandenburg hat Brückenkopf raumen müssen. Schwere Verluste 12 Tote etwa 20 Verwundete. Erweiterung des Brückenkopfes entfällt. Vorausabteilung hält diesseitiges Ufer. Bitte (?) um Ablösung der Truppe sehr angestrengt, Brücke ist durch elektrische Zündung hochgegangen.
F.d.R. Michaelis".

Thank you.

And this one is the last one, with a very difficult part at the end:
"Brückenkopf abgewiesen. Gruppe Lindemann im Verteidigung am DNESTR Pz.Div. unterstützt mit Artl. Übergang zur Verteidigung der Gruppe Lindemann Vorschlage Neugliederung der Div. im Raume MOSSCHANY-KLIMOUZY-TSCHERNOLEWKA-KORBUL.
Bereit zum Eingreifen nach Südost (?) und Nordwest (?), Div.Gef.Stand nach XXX (?) des Vorschlages KLIMOUZI.
F.d.R. Schwabedissen"

Thank you!
