Object | Accession Number: 2012.227.2

Double sided after action report poster by the 11th Armored Division, US Army, prepared on June 15, 1945, to review troop movements through southeastern Germany in April 1945 and northwestern Austria on May 1-9, 1945. One side has a map depicting dates and movements of the 11th Armored through southeastern Germany, from April 10 at Neustadt through the capture of Linz, Austria, on May 5 and the liberation of two concentration camps, Mauthausen, and a subcamp, Gusen, on May 5 and 6. The other side has a detailed, text only presentation of Miscellaneous Extracts of Division activities. The Division landed in Normandy, France, on December 16, 1944, and took heavy losses in the Battle of the Bulge that month. In February 1945, the Division attacked the German defensive line near Belgium, and, in March, pressed into Germany. The Division continued south as detailed above and was in Amstetten, Austria, when Germany surrendered on May 7, 1945. The 11th was placed on occupation duty until it was inactivated in August 1945.
