Allermann, Hans (Grenadier-Regiment 893)

German (1933-1945, Third Reich)


As Oberleutnant and Adjutant - Feldkommandant Bihać - Infanterie Regiment 383 - 104. Jäger-Division.
Major Hans Allermann led a Kampfgruppe attached to the 264.ID when the German forces retreated towards Drniš-Šibenik-Knin, Dalmatia, Croatia in October-November 1944.
As it withdrew from Šibenik toward Knin, the Kampfgruppe 'Allermann' was almost surrounded and largely destroyed, though it did manage to break out while nonetheless suffering heavy losses as a result of the partisan forces' lack of co-ordination. But in the 'Knin Operation' most of the 264th Division was destroyed and the 373rd Division also suffered heavy losses. With the fall of Knin, the 'Grün-Line' had been breached by the Yugoslav forces.
