History


It is not entirely known at this time if this unit was ever formed as such. Most all works on German units make only a mention of Division Nr. 461, but there is some thought that in the last days of WWII Division Nr. 461 was transformed into the 461.Infanterie-Division. If so, it only existed as an Infanterie-Division for a very short period of time. It is not known where the Division would have served if it was indeed formed.
