KAMPFGRUPPE
OK... I have been trying to get this finished for months now but without success... I wanted to add it to David's work on the TO&E / OOB but finally put it into one text file to copy and paste so he can thereby add or correct. Any and all additions and corrections from members would be appreciated... but this one is to corellate with the work of DavidW and I hope he can use bits of it or add some things to his excellent efforts for us so far... but be warned that there are a lot of corrections/additions and typographical erros included to fix before it is posted onto the website in a single page format for each Kampfgruppe listed here... we will be the 'authority' on the NA Campaign!
Jan and I will possibly be using this in our AFRIKAKORPS Part III writeups in part... or for a supplement that might be offered for the entire AFRIKAKORPS/Panzerarmee AFRIKA...
I still think that we are going to have to do a supplemental for the AFRIKAKORPS part 2 of Cedric as he is having to severely cut down the text to fit the magazine pages from what he has said in the past!!!
This is NOT to be shared or posted somewhere else folks!!! I know you all visit other forums but this is exactly what we talk about when we say INTERNAL Review and discussion!!!
I will actually be putting on the 'test' AFRIKAKORPS Forum Board forum each of these Kampfgruppe to add to and / or correct... so beat it up and add to it!
Kampfgruppe Nord AFRIKA Part I
The German Kampfgruppen in North Africa generally fell into one of three major catagories, which are as follows:
1. Those Gruppen which included only one individual unit and were
named after the commander of the unit (i. e. Verband Ablöscher,
Gruppe Briel, Gruppe Menton, etc.).
2. Groups of units assembled for special missions, and named after
the commanding officer in charge of the entire force e. Angriffsgruppe
Weber, Kampfgruppe Funk, Gruppe Haut, etc.). This type
of Gruppe could also be named after the sector in which it was to
operate (i. e. Kampfgruppe Nord, Kampfgruppe Mitte and Kampfgruppe
Süd) .. The Gruppe could also be assigned numbers instead
of sector designations (i. e. Kampfgruppe I, Kampfgruppe 11, etc.).
3. Gruppen could also be sub-units (Untergruppen) .... one battalion
of a regiment, one company of a battalion, etc. (i.e. Gruppe Bach
was one battalion of Infanterie-Regiment 104).
There were also Gruppen formed for marches (Marschgruppe), rearguards,
etc., but have been included in this Kampfgruppen section only
if they saw action as a Gruppe. It was not unusual for a single officer to
be given command of more than one Gruppe during his tour of service in
Africa (i. e. Vorhut Geissler, Kampfgruppe Geissler).

GRUPPE KAMPFGRUPPE GRUPPE or
Panzerjager-KAMPFGRUPPE Fallschirmjäger-GRUPPE CRÜWELL
This Gruppe was formed by Rammel for the attack on the Gazala positions
in May 1942. Generalleutnant Crüwell, former commander of the
DAK*, commanded the Gruppe until May 29, when he was forced to land
his Storch behind British lines and was captured. Generalfeldmarschall
Kesselring, who was visiting the front at that time, agreed to take over
Crüwell's Gruppe for a few days since there was no one else available
at the time. is interesting to note that although Kesselring outranked
Generaloberst Rammel, he placed hirnself under Rommel's command.
*Generalleutnant Crüwell had commanded the DAK from August 15,
1941 to March 8, 1942, at which time he took over temporary command
of Panzergruppe Afrika (March 9) when Rommel went to the
continent on a short sick leave. Upon Rommel's return, Crüwell,
who was then suffering from jaundice (a common illness among the
Germans in Africa because of the lack of fresh food or fruit), was
sent to the continent for convalescence. His early return was doubtful,
therefore, Rommel gave the command of the DAK to Generalleutnant
Nehring. When Crüwell did return in May, Nehring retained
command of the DAK, while Crüwell was ordered to take over the
Italian front plus Oberst Menny's 15. Schützen-Brigade.

KAMPFGRUPPE PFEIFFER
On October 31, 1942, Afrikakorps informed 21. Panzer-Division that it
was to form "a Kampfgruppe comprising approximately half of its tanks,
anti-tank guns (self-propelled), medium Held howitzers (self propelled)
and 2cm Flak guns. 21. Panzer-Division designated Major Pfeiffer, commander
of Panzerjäger-Abteilung 39, as commander ofthe Kampfgruppe.
Since the Division had no serviceable medium field howitzers available,
it was ordered to incorporate one light and one heavy battery into the Kampfgruppe.
The "Pfeiffer Kampfgruppe" was to launch a counter-attack
north of the EI Alamein railway line in an attempt to relieve the encircled
Panzer-Grenadier-Regiment 125". (56a)
A second "Kampfgruppe Pfeiffer" was formed on November 13, 1942, after
the Afrikakorps had received "orders to form a strong bridgehead on
the western edge of the Gazala position minefields, so that the 21. PanzerDivision
could be passed through in the event of an enemy outflanking move
from the south". (56b)
On January 30, 1943, Major Pfeiffer was again put in charge of a Kampfgruppe.
The Gruppe was one of the two major Gruppen of 21. Panzer-Division
("Kampfgruppe Grün" was the other). The Gruppe was "further
subdivided into "Nord", "Mitte" and "Süd" task forces". Major Pfeiffer
was in actual command of "Gruppe Mitte". These Gruppen took part in
the Faid-Maknassy actions of January 30 - February 3, 1943. "The small
northern task force was to assume protection of the north flank and hold
Sidi Khalif Pass. The central Gruppe was to attack Faid Pass from the
east, while the somewhat weaker southern task force was expected to
seize and block Ain Rebaou Pass and protect the southern flank against
the French on Djebel Ksaira. " (56c)
