The 1.Panzer Division was formed October 15th, 1935 from the 3. Kavallerie Division, and was headquartered in Weimar. Initially it consisted of two panzer regiments organized into brigades, a motorized infantry brigade, a reconnaissance battalion, a divisional artillery regiment, and supporting ancillary formations.
In 1938, the division participated in training exercises with the XVI Corps, a fully motorized formation. By the start of the Polish Campaign in September 1939, 1.Panzer Division was one of six panzer divisions in the Wehrmacht. It was deployed with the XVI Corps, Tenth Army, Army Group South, in the upper Silesia region.
XVI Corps, with 1. and 4.Panzer Divisions, drove northeast into Poland, rapidly penetrating toward Warsaw. Between September 16th-20th they eliminated a Polish counter-attack along the river Bzura. With the double-encirclement of the Polish Army by the panzer divisions, resistance soon came to an end.
This 4-piece figure set consists of four German sturmpioniers from the German 1.Panzer Division LSSAH.
