No Alex, my Dad was in a tanks unit "Regimentul R2" from "Divizia Romania Mare" (as chief radio operator mobile unit )and was wounded at "Cotul Donului" and hospitalized in Romania (was not taken prisonier in Russia) becouse of his wounds was evacuated before the final encircle at Stalingrad).
After aprox. one year recovering he leave the hospital for come back to the unit this time on western front and again wounded in Tatra mountains. He was not happy to tell about his war exploits ( only the funny's stories about).

Dan.

Alex, Cantacuzino's father served in the 1st Tank Regiment of the 1st Armored Division (which btw received the Greater Romania title in 1944). The division managed to brake out of the encirclement at the Don's Bend. In 1945, in Czechoslovakia, he served in the 2nd Tank Regiment, which was part of the Soviet 27th Tank Brigade.

Only two Romanian divisions were caught in the encirclement at Stalingrad (1st Cavalry and 20th Infantry). I was referring the battle north of Stalingrad, at the Don's Bend.

This thread is not the place fot this discussion however. Please read more in the Operations section of the site.
