    This is a very rare to find German Panzerschreck anti-tank launcher complete rocket .The rocket is completely empty and inert it is rusty but solid and with a few rust holes it is dated 1944 on the bakerlite nose cap the rocket strips down in to 3 parts like it should all unscrewing very easily.The rocket has no original paintwork but it has been very well cleaned and is perfect for any display or any collection a real cracking example of this very famous rocket and very hard to find from the battlefield in this good a condition.The Panzerschreck rocket has been recovered in the Hurtgen Forest on the German-Belgium border this was the scene of a massive battle from September to December 1944 with the Germans trying to stop the American advance in to Germany.The rocket comes with a laminated A5 information card with picture.

    This battle was a series of fierce battles fought from 19 September to 16 December 1944 in the Hurtgen Forest which is about 50 square miles of Forest and Villages east of the Belgian–German border. It was the longest battle on German ground during World War 2 and is the longest single battle the U.S. Army has ever fought. At the start, the forest was defended by the German 275th and 353rd Infantry Divisions; understrength but well prepared—5,000 men (1,000 in reserve)—and commanded by Generalleutnant Hans Schmidt. They had little artillery and no tanks. As the battle progressed, German reinforcements were added including Tank support. American expectations that these troops were weak and ready to withdraw were over optimistic.
