While fighting in France the 7th Panzer Division was referred to as the "Ghost Division" because of its ability to move so quickly. It entered the USSR in June 1941 and fought at the Minsk Pocket, Stalingrad Line, the Dvina crossings, Smolensk, the Dnieper crossings, Vitebsk, Vyasma, Klim and Moscow. They suffered heavy losses and during the bitter winter of 1941 - 1942 suffered even more. As a result in May of 1942 the 7th was sent to southern France for R&R.

BMM Sd.Kfz.139 Marder III

Designed to meet a German need for an anti-tank weapon that was more powerful and more mobile than towed anti-tank guns like the Pak 36, the Marder III served from 1942 to 1945. This makeshift tank destroyer was based on obsolete German tanks and captured French vehicles, and was built on a Panzer 38(t) chassis. Armed with captured Soviet 76.2mm guns, early Marder IIIs had open tops and only weak armor on the front and sides. Later models employed 7.5cm PaK 40 anti-tank guns and provided marginally better protection for the crew, but by 1944 the Marder III was phased out of production in favor of fully armored vehicles.
