    Biography
    On May 1, 1941 Hasso von Manteuffel was appointed the commander of the 1st Battalion of 7th Rifle Regiment of the 7th Panzer Division. It was with this unit that he entered World War II, serving under Hermann Hoth’s Panzer Group 3 of the Army Group Centre in Operation Barbarossa, the German invasion of the Soviet Union. On August 25, 1941 he took over the 6th Rifle Regiment of the 7th Panzer Division after its commander was killed in action. In May 1942, after heavy fighting around Moscow in the winter of 1941-1942, the 7th Panzer Division was transferred to France for refitting. On July 15, 1942, while the division was still recuperating in France, von Manteuffel was made the commander of the 7th Panzer Grenadier Brigade of the 7th Panzer Division [From Wikipedia]
