Festung-Division "Warschau"

History Ordered formed on 1.12.45, the Festung-Division "Warschau" (Warsaw) was formed in Warsaw by converting a number of various units (listed below) into the division. The fate of the division is uncertain, but with the capture of Warsaw by the Russians it was no doubt destroyed and its remains were either captured or they fled back into Germany.
