Footnote: The 16th Motorized Infantry Division was nicknamed Windhund (Greyhound) and participated in the Balkans campaign in 1941 along with the 16th Panzer Division. It took part in Operation Barbarossa with Army Group South later that year. It advanced on the Caucasus with elements coming to within 20 miles of Astrakhan in 1942 (the post easterly point reached by any German unit during the war). In addition, it participated in the Battle of Stalingrad and as defensive operations after the Soviets broke up the front of the southern sector. In 1943, it was upgraded to 16th Panzergrenadier Division and later reorganized as the 116th Panzer Division, fighting in the Battle of Normandy.
