Title : Warming up the engines

The three Sturmgeschutz MkIIIg vehicles of Oberfeldwebel Rosen's Zug, were pivotal in ensuring the attack on Hill 91 ended successfully. All were lost near the summit in a savage burst of ground - air and melee fighting. They not only knocked out the British bunker position with accurate fire but literally wiped out a suicidal attack by Lieutenant Robertson's men who swarmed amidst their vehicles in a vain glorious effort to divert the Germans from their goal.
