Historic fact about “Panzer Battalion”:
The 2003 invasion of Iraq by allied forces, also known as Operation Iraqi Freedom. 19th March – 1st May 2003.
Combined forces from the USA, United Kingdom, Australia and Poland invaded Iraq, with the intention “to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction, to end Saddam Hussein’s support for terrorism, and to free the Iraqi people.”
The invasion began with an air strike on Iraqi President Saddam Hussain’s Presidential Palace in Baghdad on 19 March 2003. The following day, coalition forces launched an incursion into Basra Province from their massing point close to the Iraqi-Kuwaiti border. While the special forces launched an amphibious assault from the Persian Gulf to secure Basra and the surrounding petroleum fields, the main invasion army moved into southern Iraq, occupying the region. Massive air strikes across the country and against Iraqi command and control prevented an effective resistance.
The main body of coalition forces continued their drive into the heart of Iraq and met with little resistance. Most of the Iraqi military was quickly defeated and Baghdad was occupied on 9 April. Other operations occurred against pockets of the Iraqi army and Saddam Hussein and the central leadership went into hiding as the coalition forces completed the occupation of the country. On 1 May 2003, an end of major combat operations was declared.
