Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

4th Light Division was reorganized in January 1940 into the 9th Panzer Division in January 1940 from the 4th Light Division.
The division fought in the 1940 Battle of France, the Balkans Campaign of spring 1941, then took part in Operation Barbarossa starting in the summer of 1941, as well as fighting in the Battle of Kursk. The division continued fighting in the east until the spring of 1944, when it was withdrawn to France for rebuilding.

In France it fought in the Battle of Normandy and the Falaise Pocket. During October 1944 it absorbed the 105th Panzer Brigade which replaced the heavy losses it had sustained. The division then defended the West Wall at Aachen and participated in the Battle of the Bulge. It was eventually trapped in the Ruhr Pocket and surrendered to the Americans there in April 1945.
