War Gallery - Třeboň (South Bohemia, Czech Republic) - 1945

On the May 9th German troops felt into siege near the village of Majdaléna, known as Svatá Máří Majdaléna (South Bohemia, Czech Republic). They disengaged, reorganized and proceeded towards the town of Třeboň (South Bohemia). They reached Třeboň at 02 o'clock the next day, on May 10th, and engaged again. The nearest to the town gates was the King Tiger (commander version, one from only twenty built) with crew commanded by
Oberstleutnant (lieutenant colonel) JUDr. von Dienst-Körber (Ritter-Kreuz Träger)
- see photo (a commander of Heavy Tank Unit sPzAbt. 502, which belonged to Feldherrenhalle 2 Division commanded by General-Major Dr. Franc Bake).

With aim maneuver out from enemy gunfire, his King Tiger run out from the road into soggy meadow and ditched into the mud.

The crew with its commander abandoned the un-operational vehicle. The Germans were very confused at this moment - according the Körber's diary, he supposed that they are at the suburb of the town of České Budějovice and they are under fire from uprising partisan troops. He did not note a loss of his tank in his diary at all.
