Tomaszow Lubelski, Poland,
18 September 1939:
in an attempt to break out of the German ring, Army Krakow
laid in the forces for a major attack. The Warsaw Mechanized Brigade
was to lead. A strong infantry group containing the bulk of the
cavalry units attacked from the Northwest, while Rifle infantry
units joined by 22 7TP, a few Vickers and some tankettes attacked
from the Southwest. The German adopted an hedgehog position from
the town of Tomaszow Lubelski to the nearby village of Rogozno
(at the West of town). Although the attack on the morning of 18
September was partially successful against the 4th Light Division,
tanks of the 2nd Panzer Division intervened and halted the attack
in that sector. The Polish tanks and their accompanying infantry
had entered the town and occupied almost half of it when the pressure
from 2nd PzDiv forced them to withdraw towards the woods. The
attacks were repeated through 19 and 20 September. All motor vehicles
were drained of fuel and destroyed in order to collect enough
fuel for the tanks of the Warsaw Mechanized Brigade, which were
to launch the attack. These were the largest tank to tank encounters
of the Polish Campaign.
