GARAMPALD, NEAR KEMEND, HUNGARY, 26 December 1944: With one
daring stroke advance elements of the 5th Guards Tank Corps had seized the
crossing over the Garam River. Tank riders and tanks now threatened to block and
disrupt the withdrawal route of the German LXXII ArmeeKorps. The German
response would come quickly—in the form of a counter-attack by all available
forces—to retake the vital crossing. At 1035 hours Major Pal Bernolak organized
an attack group consisting of Hungarian paratroopers, German assault guns, Hetzers
and Mark IVs with Hungarian crews attacked from the northwest. Despite losing
a Jagdpanzer in the opening minutes the attack pressed on. With artillery raining in
and reinforcements entering the fray it was now the Russians who were cut off.
Withdrawing before dark the Hungarians once again controlled this key crossing as
well as securing the important road junction running through nearby Kemend. The
badly needed escape rout was once again opened.
