After years of research, Robert E. Thomas is pleased to reveal his research, indicating that it was not, in fact, the 3rd Infantry Division that captured Berchtesgaden. Instead, states Thomas, the 910th Antiaircraft/Tank Battalion attached to the 101st Airborne Division arrived April 26th, 1945, a full eight days prior to any other unit arriving at Berchtesgaden.
“The last main trophy in WWII for all military units was to be first into the village of Berchtesgaden and capture the Berghof, Adolph Hitler's Home,” states Thomas.
“There were a number of groups that found their way into Berghof. First came the 910th on April 26th, then a detachment of German SS arrived the morning of May 4th; their goal was to loot and burn Berghof to the ground,” says Thomas. “The 3rd Infantry arrived later that afternoon to an already twice-looted and burning Berghof. The French Second Armoured Division arrived later that evening, and the next morning the 101st Airborn Division – parent to the 910th – arrived fifth.
According to the information Thomas was able to uncover, historians have been getting this series of events wrong for decades.
