Check one of the sites linked off it theres some images &video of a T-34 being recovered in one of the Baltic states looked like it had just been driven into the bog they reckon it needed just a change of plugs/fuel&oil to get it running again :eek:

Interesting and useful site. However there is a caveat that the text is patchy in quality. e.g. Lt. Manfred Rottenberg
http://www.lerenfort.fsnet.co.uk/page27.html may not have been killed in Honsfeld on 16th supporting KG Peiper -because that attack didn't happen on that day.

However, its quite possible that he was killed leading his company in a gallant but tactically inept attack near Lanzerath on 16th Dec. This is a very famous action where a weak platoon of American infantry held off the best efforts of a German "paratroop" division. Intriguing story. Was he a Luftwaffe ground staff officer converted to instant para and asked to behave like an infantryman?
Here is a link to the US side of the story. https://icon.army.mil/anon/content/history/PDFS/reader.pdf#search="bourke lanzerath 394"
