As the pocket was eliminated, the tanks of 1st "Panzerarmee" turned north, and attacked toward Kiev on the orders to assist 2nd "Panzerarmee"in closing another encirclement around that city. The Crimean objective was for a time left to the field armies; the first of many times when Hitler would change his mind about strategic objectives of the Army Groups.
The Afrika Korps was restructured and renamed in August 1941. "Afrikakorps" was the official name of the force for less than six months but the officers and men used it for the duration. The "Afrika Korps" was the major German component of "Panzerarmee Afrika", which was later renamed the "Deutsch-Italienische Panzerarmee" and finally renamed "Heeresgruppe Afrika" (Army Group Africa) during the 27 months of the Desert campaign.
When Tobruk was taken in June 1942, over 18,000 British khaki uniforms were captured; the "Panzerarmee Afrika", perennially short of supplies, issued this store of shirts, shorts and boots to their own troops who wore them with German insignia.
"Panzer" Army Africa was redesignated as German-Italian "Panzer" Army ("Deutsch-Italienische Panzerarmee", "Armata Corazzata Italo-Tedesca") in October 1942 during the long retreat after the defeat at the Second Battle of El Alamein during the Western Desert Campaign.
In mid July the Soviet 22nd and 15th Mechanized Corps engaged the German 3rd Motorized Corps near Kiev, and was decimated. The 1st "Panzerarmee" bypassed much of the remaining forces, leaving the German 6th Army's 297th Infantry Division to defeat the remnants with anti-tank and Luftwaffe attacks. On June 26th, the Soviets launched a second counter-attack on the 1st "Panzerarmee" from the north and south. The attack comprised elements of the Red 8th, 9th and 19th Mechanized Corps, altogether fielding about 1600 tanks. An intense battle took place over four days, ending in a Soviet defeat.
In February 1943, Messe was appointed as the new commander of the "Italo-German Tank Army" ("Deutsch-Italienische Panzerarmee") formerly commanded by Erwin Rommel. The name was changed to 1st Italian Army in recognition of the fact that the army consisted of one German and three Italian corps. Rommel was promoted to the command of the new Army Group Africa ("Heeresgruppe Afrika").
The Axis forces were divided into those of 1st "Panzerarmee" that had suffered significant losses in matériel, but retained combat effectiveness, and the large infantry formations of the German and Romanian armies that attempted to advance from the West to meet the armored troops north of Crimea, the initial strategic objective of Army Group South.
"Panzerarmee Afrika said in its daily battle report. "The encircled enemy, supported by numerous infantry tanks, again resisted most stubbornly", "Each separate element within the fortress-like strengthened defences had to be fought for. The enemy suffered extraordinary heavy, bloody losses. Eventually the operation, which also caused considerable losses to our troops, ended in complete success""
On 20 June 1942 General Rommel's "Deutsch-Italienische Panzerarmee" attacked the Tobruk garrison from the south and south east. By 18:00, the German and Italian forces had overrun the main defence lines and were closing on the harbour and all Allied ships were ordered to embark personnel for evacuation.
The "Stavka" used the respite offered by the German refocusing of 1st "Panzerarmee" to re-establish its front using the 9th Coastal Army (independent) and either reforming the destroyed armies, or bringing into line reserve 37th and 56th armies from the interior military districts, with the 38th Army eventually left to hold an over-stretched Kharkov sector of the Front.
During 1943, the Hungarian Second Army was re-built. In late 1944, as part of "Panzerarmee Fretter-Pico", it participated in the destruction of a Soviet mechanized group at the Battle of Debrecen. But this proved to be a Pyrrhic victory. Unable to re-build again, the Hungarian Second Army was disbanded towards the end of 1944.
When Rommel was promoted to the newly formed Panzerarmee Afrika, his command included a number of Italian units, including four infantry divisions. Two Italian armoured divisions, "Ariete" and "Trieste" initially remained under Italian control as the Italian XX Motorized Corps under the command of General Gastone Gambara.
The 6th Panzer Army is best noted for its leading role in the Battle of the Bulge (December 16, 1944 – January 25, 1945). On April 2, 1945, it was transferred to the Waffen-SS. The 6th Panzer Army then became known as 6th SS Panzer Army ("6. SS-Panzerarmee").
The 4th Panzer Army (German: "4. Panzerarmee") was, before being designated a full army, the Panzer Group 4 ("Panzergruppe 4"), a German panzer army during World War II. Its units played a part in the invasion of France, and then on the Eastern Front.
The German 9th Army held the front from about the Finow Canal to Guben, an area which included the Seelow Heights. It had 14 divisions, the "Fortress" ("Festung") Frankfurt, 587 tanks (512 operable, 55 in repair, 20 in transit) and 2,625 artillery pieces (including 695 anti-aircraft guns). Further south, the front was held by the 4th "Panzerarmee", which opposed the 1st Ukrainian Front.
Initially the division was commanded by SS-Oberführer Waldemar Fegelein, but in March he was replaced by SS-Standartenführer Karl Gesele. The unit saw action against Soviets as a part of 6. SS-Panzerarmee during the final weeks of war, before surrendering to Americans in Austria in May. It was named after the Prussian general Adolf von Lützow.
World War II began in 1939 but the Mareth Line saw no use from 1939–1940, as Italy remained neutral until a few days before the Armistice of 22 June 1940, after which, the line was demilitarised by an Italo-German commission. In November 1942, the British Eighth Army (General Bernard Montgomery) defeated "Panzerarmee Afrika" at the Second Battle of El Alamein and the British First Army landed in French North Africa in Operation Torch. Axis forces occupied Tunisia in the Tunisia Campaign and from November 1942 to March 1943, the "Panzerarmee" conducted a fighting retreat through Egypt and Libya, pursued by the Eighth Army. Axis engineers refurbished the Mareth Line for occupation by the "Panzerarmee" and by March 1943, more than of barbed wire, 100,000 anti-tank mines and 70,000 anti-personnel mines had been laid, bunkers had been reinforced with concrete and armed with anti-tank and anti-aircraft guns. In March 1943, the Eighth Army reached the Libya–Tunisia border and paused at Medenine to prepare to attack the Mareth Line. Axis forces were renamed the Italian 1st Army (General Giovanni Messe) and attempted a spoiling attack, Operation Capri. The attack failed and the Axis troops withdrew to the Mareth Line, to await the British attack. The British survey of the Mareth Line was assisted by General Rime-Bruneau an ex-Chief of Staff of the Tunisian garrison and Captain Paul Mezan, the Garrison Engineer of the Mareth Line.
