Unit History 

Sept 1943 – Dec 1943
The 916. Grenadier Regiment (GR916), alongside 914. and 915. Grenadier Regimente, was part of the 352. Infanterie Division (352ID), a new "type 1944" infantry division. The division came into being following Adolf Hitler's directive No. 51 in November 1943. The cadre for the new division came mainly from the 321. Infanterie Division which had been smashed on the Eastern Front. A smaller number of recruits came from the 268. Infanterie Division which had been broken at the battle of Kursk, July 1943.

The Division C.O. during this period was Generalleutnant Kraiss.
