    KALININ, RUSSIA, 14 October 1941: After overrunning any Russian defenses in front of them, the 1st Panzer Division had taken Subzoff on October 11 and Staritza on the 12th. After reaching the Volga, it was discovered all the remaining bridges had been dropped into the water before any intervention could be organized. Gathering the remaining fuel and ammunition, Eckinger’s battalion was equipped to press the armored thrust forward, which it proceeded to do, often times sharing the only roads with retreating and panic-stricken enemy troops. The Germans finally reached the outskirts of the industrial city of Kalinin, only 90 miles northwest of Moscow. On the 14th, the order was passed down to again launch the attack with the aim of seizing the still standing road bridge across the Volga, 2 kilometers inside the city. It would not be easy; the advance was greeted by furious Russian resistance. Nevertheless, Eckinger, a reputation for using the “shortest way” in battle already established, moved his battalion to within sight of the 250 meter long bridge. Without waiting for support, his lone infantry company, supported by a handful of tanks and armored vehicles stormed the enemy stronghold, forcing a dispirited enemy to flee. Demolition wires were cut and the bridgehead, the only bridge over the Volga the Germans would capture for the entire war, was consolidated when a Panzer III came up alongside Eckinger’s half-track.
