Operation 25. Tanks of the "Ghost Division" (11th Armoured Division) passing through Caribrod, on the first day of the attack of the 1st Armoured Group (von Kleist). From a report by war correspondent Alfons van Bevern: "The armoured force was entrusted with the task of overcoming a terrain that provides the enemy, who feel at home here, ideal possibilities for defence with its high hills, winding valleys and narrow gorges. They tried to exploit those advantages and offered long resistance on the first day of the attack, on the heights of Caribrod. However, after the armoured units penetrated the canyon and after the mountain troopers took over the heights, the enemy, despite their fierce defence, were no longer able to continue resisting, not until their new forces and reinforcements arrive. The armourers rolled forth over them..."

Operacija 25. Tenkovi "Sablasne divizije" (11. oklopna divizija) prolaze kroz Caribrod, prvog dana napada 1. oklopne grupe (fon Klajst). Iz izveštaja ratnog dopisnika Alfonsa van Beverna: "Oklopnim snagama je povereno savlađivanje jednog terena koji svojim visokim brdima, krivudavim dolinama i uskim tesnacima pruža neprijatelju, koji se ovde oseća kod kuće, idealne mogućnosti za odbranu. On je pokušao da ih iskoristi i davao je prvog dana napada na visovima Caribroda dug otpor. Međutim, kada su oklopne jedinice provalile u klanac i kada su brdski lovci zauzeli visove, neprijatelj, uprkos ogorčenoj odbrani, nije bio više u stanju da nastavi otpor dotle dok mu ne stignu nove snage i pojačanja. Oklopnici su se otkotrljali preko njih dalje..."
