The gaming clans story:
Brief history of the division:
Created back in 1936 in the town of Munster it mainly had Panzer I´s and was rather a small unit.
By 1939 it was a fully manned panzer division consisting of panzer grenadiers and panzers of all sorts, one of the first to mainly have Panzer III as the workhorse of the unit rather than Panzer II as most other divisions had.
The division took part in the attack on Poland on 1 of September 1939 under the lead of Heinz von Guderian, our superior training and tactics made short work of the enemy and we achieved victory and Poland was soon overrun as Russians conquered the eastern regions of the country.
During the winter of 1940 we trained hard for the upcoming battles with the respected British troops and to see the arch enemy France beaten after WW1. New tanks and weapons arrived to the division which we would put to good use later on.
We didn't take part in the invasion of Norway or Denmark but were placed in the Ardennes instead under strict secrecy.
On 10 of May 1940 we attacked France through this forested area and surprised the enemy by attacking where no one thought panzers could travel, under the lead of Guderian once again we rolled through France and this time outclassed the French and gave the British a burn, only halting when we reached the channel and orders came to stop the advance in fear of counterattacks but we suspect the high command wanted the British to escape from Dunkirk and since we are loyal, and our division leader Judge_von_death is loyal to the core, we saw the British leave.
Once the advance recommenced we soon defeated the rest of the French armies and soon we had won the battle.
During the summer we were positioned near the channel in the wait for the invasion of England but since the battle of Britain wasn't a success for Luftwaffe we were ordered back to Munster for further training and learning from the battles we had faced and use our experience to become even stronger.
We never went to North Africa so for the Todesrichter division it was a calm time and it was not until the spring of 1941 when things started to heat up again.
In March 1941 we were positioned near the Russian front in Romania but we were ordered to attack Greece after the British had landed there and the Greek army had defeated the Italians; it was a short battle and we quickly arose victorious! Once the battle was done we were moved back to near the Russian border.
June 1941 we attacked the Soviet union and we followed army group centre under the command of Guderian once again and we were advancing at high speed and captured millions of Russians during the year but with Operation Typhoon we managed to get near Moscow and some of our spearheads managed to get to the suburbs but that was the limit for us that year; we focused on defending for the rest of the year and winter of 1942.
In 1942 we were mostly on the defensive and didn't take part in Case Blue and the attack on the Caucasus or Stalingrad but a lot of Russian attacks on army group centre was stopped with our help.
In 1943 we were relocated to Kharkov and took part of the German counterattack to recapture Kharkov and land areas that was lost during the winter of 1943.
Once the summer arrived we took part of Operation Zitadelle or “battle of Kursk” as it was called. We attacked under the command of von Hoth and came a long way until the operation was cancelled by the fuhrer and so we turned to the defensive, we had lost some tanks during this operation but were still operational and retreated in good order.
After the winter of 1944 the division needed a break, so we were relocated to France which was like a vacation to many of our veterans in the division… but maybe it was bad luck: When we had reached full strength the allies attacked in Normandy so we were ordered there and fought the Americans mainly in severe defence battles. During the D-day our tanks were one of the few that managed to get to the beaches but fierce fire from the battleships forced us to pull back.
In august of 1944 we were moved away from the Normandy front and back to the eastern front as Operation Bagration had caused heavy losses to army group centre and we were pressed into desperate defence battles directly after arriving with train, and here we got severe losses as the Russians were more powerful than ever by now.
We managed to avoid crushing defeat by the Russian armies but army group centre was completely lost, and before the end of the year we were moved back to the western front and took part in the Rundstedt offensive, under the command of von Rundstedt we attacked the American front in December 1944, our King Tigers and heavy tanks cut through the front and advanced swiftly but lack of fuel and resistance of the Americans and allied air power stopped us and by January 1945 we had to give up and retreat.
From then on it was back to the eastern front and desperate defence battles, but we had one last offensive charge: Operation Spring-Wind. However as the Waffen SS divisions pulled back and surrendered we had no other choice than to retreat as well and we turned back to the western front where we fought the Americans and British until the surrender and Todesrichter surrendered near Munster to the allies.

About the clan:
We are people who play for fun mainly and when we get time from work/studies or adult life to play. We also play a lot of different games.
We are mainly a German oriented group, military and history interested and encourage our members to learn more about WW2 and history.
At the moment the group is active in the following games:
World of tanks
Heroes and generals
We might branch out into other ww2 games as well if there is a need for it.
We mostly play the German side so don't expect us to play with allied weapons very often; we are after all a German oriented group.
Some of us are even into re-enacting and teaching WW2 history to name a few things we do besides gaming.
So if you are looking for a group who are mature and don’t demand being super active or a pro gamer but are loyal, military and WW2 interested then we might be the group you are looking for!
We aim to become better as players and in the future do special events and maybe even play with historically correct tanks/weapons.
We will also have contests and events where one can win gold/premium money in games, maybe even role play/write fictional stories.
When we play in the group we try to use Skype since it’s the fastest way of cooperating, working together and can be a lot of fun, but if you dislike it its fully alright to use text-chat.
