205th Infantry Division
The 205. Infanterie-Division was was mobilized a few days before the invasion of Poland in 1939 and sent to France near the end of the western campaign. It then served as a garrison against potential any Allied invasion until early 1942. It was then sent to the Russian Front, where it served with Army Group Center in the "little Stalingrad" at Velikiye Luki over the winter of 1942-1943. The division was transferred to Army Group North in late 1943 and eventually trapped in the Courland Pocket, where it surrendered to the Soviets in 1945.
