HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE and HISTORIC “Dug Relic” German WW2 “FALLSCHIRMJAGER” German PARATROOPER HELMET SHELL and Liner! (Recovered TANGERMUNDE Bridge Head, Elbe). Here is a chance to own a historic battle dug relic helmet shell Fallschirmjager that was found on the Elbe in 1997. Tangermünde was not hit by severe damage during World War II until elements of the U. Army closed on the city and its strategic bridge across the Elbe River on 12 April, 1945, triggering a brief but fierce battle, during which the modern (1933) combined rail and highway bridge was blown up by retreating German forces. In the closing days of the war Tangermünde was the scene of one of the last skirmishes of the war and the surrender en masse of the German 12th Army and remnants of the 9th Army to U. Between 4 May and 7 May, 1945, as many as 100,000 German soldiers and civilians crossed the rickety ruins of the bridge on foot until Russian forces reached the east bank of the Elbe. Since German reunification the old town has been gradually restored. The item “RARE WW2 German Fallschirmjager PARATROOPER Helmet Dug RELIC” is in sale since Monday, October 16, 2017.
