Its units played a part in the invasion of France, and then on the Eastern Front. Some elements of the German Fourth Panzer Army also suffered casualties in operations around Stalingrad during the Soviet counter offensive. Various scholars have estimated the Axis suffered 850.000 casualties of all types (wounded, killed, captured…etc) among all branches of the German armed forces and its allies, many of which were POW’s who died in Soviet captivity between 1943 and 1955: 400.000 Germans, 200.000 Romanians, 130.000 Italians, and 120.000 Hungarians were killed, wounded or captured. Of all of the German POW’s taken at Stalingrad, only 5.000 returned to Germany in 1955. Christian Müller became a Major General and survived the war.
