Thank you Vik, very interesting link!
But it is difficult to say how much of the text is some kind of "impressions of a journey" and how much is war! I do not know to what extent the soviet 78 Rifle Division was involved or not in heavy fightings for this city so I cant have an impression about the text! But it is interesting and useful to know this memories of a soldier involved in this battle!

Some of the 23 Panzer Division tanks withdrawn in Hungary, after the heavy battles in Romania (Turda and Oradea areas). There are Panther tanks model A, produced until early summer 1944. As many other Wehrmacht divisions in mid 1944 the 23 Panzer Division had two tank battalions of which one was based on Panther tanks. One such battalion should have 76 Panther tanks, but it is impossible to imagine that such a number could be achieved in summer-autumn 1944! I would think that something between 30 to 50% of this number would be possible for the 23. Panzer Division in early autumn 1944.
