In the end of April 1945 the Waffen-SS General Felix Steiner became commander of Armeegroup "Steiner" (it was also called "Kampfgruppe Holste"). Around 25th of april 45 he got the order to free the encircled city of Berlin. Because Steiner ignored this senseless order he was relieved from his command on 27th of April by Hitler. At the end of april 45 the Kampfgruppe Holste fought in the region of a city call Rathenow. On 3 of may Steiner surrendered to a unit of the US army near the river Elbe and became POW (till april 1948). I am researching to the question which US-troops captured SS-General Steiner ? Does anyone has a serious source for it? I am thinking that it should be elements of the Ninth Army. I read the wardiary of Ninth Army ("Conquer") but I couldn´t find any further informations. Is anyone here who can help me to find out?
