It amazes me how 71 years later it appears on the internet.....so it must be true. Now I am not saying it is or it is not. But think about it....a single tank taking on an armored division for 2 days. And the german airforce refused to attack a single tank.....lol. I suspect if it did happen, itdid not go down quite the way the russian site said it did. If it did happen as they said. No wonder Germany lost the war.
I read about in the early 60's from Military books printed not long after WW2, I've also read about in English translated German Military History books, Wiki gives you the basic outline of what happened but sums it all up.
Wittman was famous for using this same Tactic.
The Hold up was waiting for a Flak 88 to arrive when outside of the major cities there was no sealed rds & at that time, rail was a different Gauge.
Bindy is right, if not for the Purges, a lot more of this kind of leadership would of given the Germans a harder time than they got.
