The 4th Panzer Army was a panzer army existed from 15 February 1941 to 8 May 1945. The party had 631 tanks at the start of Operation Barbarossa in June 1941, when the army took part in the invasion of the Soviet Union. The army accompanied Army Group North during the push through the Baltics towards Leningrad, and the army would later be sent to join Army Group South in southern Russia. In 1943, the army fought the Russians along the Vistula River in Poland. The defence along the Vistula took place from August 1944 until the renewed Soviet offensive in January 1945. By January 1945, the 4th Panzer Army was holding static defensive positions on Hitler's direct orders and during the lull in the fighting it had created a defensive zone in southern Poland. The army was destroyed during the campaign in Germany, and the panzer army was forced to surrender to the red Army after the Prague offensive in May 1945.
