Its first major battle was the Battle of Breitenfeld (Battle of Breitenfeld (1631)) on 17 September that same year, where it stood in the first line. It also stood in the first line as part of the Swedish Brigade (Svenska brigaden) at the Battle of Lützen (Battle of Lützen (1632)) the next year, a battle which caused heavy casualties to the regiment. The regiment's "creator", Gustav II Adolf, was killed in a cavalry charge trying to ease the pressure on Dalregementet's part of the front. The regiment returned to Sweden to replenish shortly after and remained at home until 1638, when one of the regiment's two battalions was sent as garrison to Stettin. Dalregementet was one of the original 20 Swedish infantry regiments mentioned in the Swedish constitution of 1634. Carl Gustaf Wrangel was the commander from 1639 on. The second battalion was sent to Germany in 1642, and the whole regiment fought at the Battle of Leipzig (Battle of Breitenfeld (1642)) that year, only to return to Sweden again the following year. They were present during the siege of Landskrona in 1644 during the short Torstenson War. The victory at Lund served as an immense morale boost to the Swedish army. Charles XI was criticized for getting carried away by his success on the right flank, but the battle had nonetheless made him popular with his own troops. The remaining Danish forces were forced to retreat to the fortress of Landskrona. Reinforced by their Austrian and German allies, they would once again meet the Swedish army at the Battle of Landskrona. Since the 1970s, improved highways and commuter train connections have meant that commuting area has grown to include Ystad, Skurup, Sjöbo, Eslöv, Höör, Landskrona and Helsingborg.

Inhabitants of Eslöv and Höör consider themselves to live in Central Scania, like Landskrona still is grouped together with Helsingborg rather than Malmö–Lund.

The final squad was made up of players born in both Serbia and Montenegro. They played their last ever international on 21 June 2006, a 3–2 loss to Côte d'Ivoire (Côte d'Ivoire national football team).

Basketball The country dominated European and world basketball during the mid-to-late 1990s and early 2000s with three European titles, two World Championships titles, and the Olympic silver medal. The national team started competing internationally in 1995 after a three-year exile due to the UN trade embargo. During this time, FR Yugoslavia was not allowed to compete at the 1992 Summer Olympics (Basketball at the 1992 Summer Olympics) in Barcelona, Eurobasket 1993, and finally 1994 FIBA World Championship whose hosting was originally awarded to Belgrade before being taken away and moved to Toronto. At the Eurobasket 1995 in Athens, its first international competition, the hungry and highly motivated Yugoslav team led by Dušan Ivković brought a starting five full of world-class talent with established European stars at positions one (point guard) through four (power forward (basketball)) — 27-year-old Saša Đorđević, 25-year-old Predrag Danilović, 29-year-old Žarko Paspalj, 22-year-old Dejan Bodiroga — capped off with 27-year-old Vlade Divac, the starting center for the LA Lakers at the five (center (basketball)) position. With the bench that was just as capable — experienced Zoran Sretenović (the only player over 30 in the team), Saša Obradović, talismanic power forward Zoran Savić, and up-and-coming young center Željko Rebrača — the team rampaged through its preliminary group featuring medal contenders Greece and Lithuania with a 6-0 record. At the first direct elimination stage, the quarterfinals, Yugoslavia scored 104 points to destroy France, thus setting up a semifinal clash with hosts Greece. In the highly charged atmosphere of the OAKA Arena (O.A.C.A. Olympic Indoor Hall), Yugoslav team demonstrated its versatility, using defensive prowess this time to pull off a famous eight-point win in a tense, low-scoring 60-52 game. The final against experienced Lithuania team led by basketball legend Arvydas Sabonis in addition to world class players Šarūnas Marčiulionis, Rimas Kurtinaitis, Valdemaras Chomičius, etc., turned into a classic game of basketball with crafty Yugoslavs prevailing 96-90 behind Đorđević's 41 points. They were represented by a single team in the Basketball World Championship 2006 as well. This team was also inherited by Serbia after the tournament, while Montenegro created a separate national basketball team afterwards, as well as the national teams of all other team sports. Entertainment The two countries were represented in the Miss Earth 2006 pageant by a single delegate, Dubravka Skoric. Serbia and Montenegro also participated in the Eurovision Song Contest and in Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2005 only on one occasion. The country debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest under the name Serbia and Montenegro in 2004, when Željko Joksimović got 2nd place. The next to follow was the Montenegrin boyband No Name. In 2006, the year of Montenegrin independence, the country Serbia and Montenegro did not have a representative due to the scandal in Evropesma 2006 (Evropesma#2006 event and controversy).

On 5 August, ''Gruppenführer'' Nebe moved his ''Einsatzgruppen'' command to Smolensk, where the ''Vorkommando'' Moskau was concentrated. On 6 August, ''Einsatzkommando'' 8 reached Minsk (Battle of Białystok-Minsk), remaining there until 9 September 1941. From Minsk, it reached Mogilev, which became its general headquarters, and from there ''Einsatzkommando'' 8 effected successive killings in Bobruisk, Gomel, Roslav, and Klinzy systematically attacking the local Jewish communities, and killing the inhabitants. Meanwhile, ''Einsatzkommando'' 9 was put to work; they had left Treuburg, in eastern Prussia, and reached Vilna on 2 July. Their main theater of mass killing operations were Grodno and Bielsk-Podlaski (Biala-Podlaska). On 20 July it moved its headquarters to Vitebsk, and then exterminated the citizens of Polotzk, Nevel, Lepel, and Surazh. The command progressed to Vtasma, and from there they killed the communities of Gshatsk and Mozhaisk in the Moscow vicinity. The Soviet counter-offensive forced the ''Einsatzkommando'' to withdraw to Vitebsk on 21 December 1941. Anticipating the fall of Moscow (Battle of Moscow), the ''Vorkommando'' Moskau advanced to Maloyaroslavets, earlier captured by the Wehrmacht on 18 October 1941. In practice, ''Sonderkommandos'' 7a and 7b operated behind the vanguard of the army. The actions were fast, in order to prevent the Jews from escaping the advancing German Army. To the south and east of Smolensk and Minsk, the two ''Sonderkommandos'' left a wake of dead civilians, from Veliki-Luki, Kalinin, Orsha, Gomel, Chernigov and Orel, to Kursk.
