Towards the end of the Second World War, the boiler battle of Halbe took place
in the area of the village of Halbe between April 24 and 28, 1945.
The armies of the left wing of the 1st Belarusian Front and the right wing of
the 1st Ukrainian Front closed the ring around the German 9th Army about 60 km
south of Berlin, followed by several attempts to break out against the Soviet troops
parallel to the Battle of Berlin expired.
On April 27, hardly any remnants of German troops and civilians fleeing west
were trapped by Soviet troops in a small forest area between Buchholz and Halbe.
Only a relief attack by the 12th Army from the area south of Potsdam enabled the
escape to the west.
So that large parts reached the German front near Beelitz on May 1st.
The four stable holes on the edge help with the attachment.
The "shot holes" appear realistic due to the deformation on the back of the shield
and give the shield more depth. Authentic look, the rust is real.
This sign could just as well have been found in a Halbe attic.
