Tarnopol 1944

Despite being surrounded the small garrison was ordered to defend the city at all costs … and cost them it did. Check out the Timeline and Order of Battle. A long time ago I got some 15mm Jarvis city barricades. I finally got around to painting them. There are a lot of different bits on these features but it was pretty straight forward.

That was new.

I have been collecting, making, and painting Ruins for quite some time. All for my long term Stalingrad project. What do you reckon … do I have enough ruins? Summary: Good game. Forced us both to make explicit tactical choices. I got a Soviet victory before the German reinforcements arrived. It seems he still likes it. This time Mark included some photos of his game and of his urban Crossfire set up. I really like the effect Mark has achieved with his terrain and table so asked him for more details on how he did it.

Everything is scratch built and looks fantastic. An inspiration. My big Crossfire game set in Stalingrad is going to require a lot of rubble. I needed something grittier. So I made my own. It is pretty simple. Brute force simple. They are great value. Actually it comprises the two ruined factory features from Wargames Tournaments and a lot of rubble that I added.

I picked up a 15mm Ruined Factory feature from Wargames Tournaments. Perfect for snipers perched on an upper floor. The trouble is that Crossfire demands that building are made up of regular shaped building sectors. So what should I do? How can I use that big feature in Crossfire? I made up some ruined buildings for Crossfire.

V. 29, n. 4 (1989)

Initially I painted the ground quite dark but a feature of Stalingrad was the brick dust, making everything pink. So I tried one of those.

Which do you think is better?Zhukov's attack, though struggling at times against fierce German resistance, unhinged the German defensive front between the Fourth and First Panzer Army and penetrated deep into the German operational rear by flowing past the strongest part of the German defenses including at the city of Tarnopol. Tarnopol was a major communications hub for not only German forces in the region but also a critically important Soviet objective for its capture would open up road and rail lines to the west.

Prior to the war Tarnopol had been a thriving Polish city of 35, people that had been a mix of Poles and Ukrainians with a large Jewish population.

Stalin had deported many of the ethnic Poles and had waged a campaign against Ukrainian Nationalists until Barbarossa when the Germans took the city and largely exterminated the Jewish population. By this battered city again found itself on the front line. Though Hitler declared Tarnapol a Fester Platz or "fortress" it was not a logical place for a defensive stand. Short of its importance as an important communications hub and minor industrial base, defending the city was made difficult in part because the surrounding terrain was largely flat and open.

Thus, though the city had several notable industrial works providing some good defensive positions it was poorly situated for serving as a defensive hub and was highly vulnerable to envelopment. In addition, a further problem for the Germans was that the practical effect of Hitler's orders designating the city a Fester Platz was to further inhibit German mobility - the one thing allowing many German units to survive the Red Army's ability to penetrate the German lines nearly at will.

This was because a Fester Platz order, as per its accompanying guidelines, put German garrisons so designated, such as at Tarnopol, as well as units that came through the garrison's area, not only under the garrison's command but also meant they had to directly report to the Army Group command.

Thus, the order had the effect of stripping away the ability of local divisional and corps commanders to make quick thinking decisions based upon their local knowledge of the situation on the battlefield. Of course, the latitude granted to tactical and operational level German commanders as they saw fit had been the key role in enabling an increasingly immobilized German army, in the modern sense of possessing adequate motorized transport and the fuel so needed, to fight a mobile battle by virtue of its ability to act within the decision loop of its opponent.

Nevertheless, in spite of the difficulty of their position Tarnopol's defenders had not only blocked Zhukov's initial attempt to take the city but had launched aggressive counterattacks. However Zhukov temporarily bypassed Tarnapol and his spearheads cut not only supply lines crucial to First Panzer Army's survival but also blew open a massive hole between First Panzer Army and Fourth Panzer Army to its north. The 7th Panzer Division and 1st SS-Panzer Division were simply overwhelmed by the defensive task before them, and fought mostly for their own survival with the 7th Panzer Division actually cut in two at one point in the battle.

While all this was going on the 3rd Ukrainian Front had pounded into the junction between the Eighth Army and Sixth Army further south yet - all developments auguring poorly for German chances to mass reserves needed to secure Tarnapol.

In and around Tarnopol, and though the th Infantry Division put up a stiff fight, Soviet close air support took a toll on German road bound units and proved so effective Soviet airpower alone had partially isolated Tarnopol as early as March 8th. The German th Infantry Division and 69th Infantry Division temporarily stabilized the situation in Tarnopol, where Russian forces had broken into the city on March 10th, but by March 12thth the 1st Ukrainian Front had enveloped the city and on March 24th completed the encirclement.

An initial attempt by the 8th Panzer Division to cut through to the city failed the next day. Luftwaffe air drops were hardly effective and beginning on March 27th the Russian forces set about reducing the pocket.

In spite of the enormous pressure brought to bear on the city its mixed bag of defenders held out. Finally, in April's first two weeks the 9th and 10th SS-Panzer Divisions and a kampfgruppe from the 8th Panzer Division led the attempts to break through to the city but they failed and the Russian forces eradicated the pocket by April 16, Get the latest updates by adding the RSS feed link to your favorite news reader:.

TaminoJan 9, I never heard of this battle either so I did a little research. The site this picture came from seems rather pro-Nazi, at least by judging from other items it lists. I found a Russian video given to British Pathe about the same battle. It's interesting to compare the different views of the same battle. LRussoJan 9, Tamino likes this.

Haven't read that one.Army Group South. It was the biggest and most important operation of the Dnieper-Carpathian Offensive. The Red Army successfully created a pockettrapping someGerman soldiers inside. Under the command of General Hans-Valentin Hube and with the direction of Field Marshal Erich von Mansteinthe majority of German forces in the pocket were able to fight their way out by mid-April in coordination with the German relief forces led by the 2nd SS Panzer Corpswhich was transferred from France with just months before the Allied D-Day landings.

Although the majority of the 1st Panzer Army was rescued, it came at the cost of losing almost the entire heavy equipment and a significant territory while many divisions ended up being shattered formations, which required thorough refitting. This Soviet offensive and the ongoing crisis had absorbed all German strategic reserves that could otherwise be used to repel the future Allied D-Day landings or Soviet Operation Bagration.

In total, the German forces stationed in France were deprived of a total of 45, troops [6] and tanks, assault guns, and self-propelled anti-tank guns on 6 June Although the Soviets were unable to destroy the 1st Panzer Army, they did achieve major operational goals.

With the Soviet 1st Tank Army crossing the Dniester river and reaching Chernovtsy near the Carpathian Mountainsthe 1st Panzer Army's links with the 8th Army in the south had been cut off. As a result, Army Group South was effectively split into two- north and south of Carpathians.

The northern portion was renamed to Army Group North Ukrainewhile the southern portion to Army Group South Ukrainewhich was effective from 5 Aprilalthough very little of Ukraine remained in German hands.

As a result of this split, the Soviets had cut the main supply lifeline of Army Group South- the Lvov - Odessa railway.

Now, the southern group of German forces would have to use the long roundabout route through the Balkanswith all of the supplies being rerouted over the Romanian railroads, which were in poor condition. Throughout February, main forces of the 1st Ukrainian Front repulsed heavy blows from the units of the 1st Panzer Army in their attempts to de-blockade the trapped German forces at the Korsun-Cherkassy Pocket.

In the course of that operation, a new bulge was created, in which the Soviets dangerously hanged from the north over the 1st Panzer Army and the rest of the Army Group South in Ukraine. It would be there, in the Shepetovka area, where Soviets will shift their main weight of attack. By striking south from that area towards the Dniester river, the 1st Panzer Army and all German forces operating in the right-bank Ukraine would be cut off from Germany and pressed against the Carpathian Mountains.

Furthermore, the Tarnopol - Proskurov railway junction, which was part of a wider Lvov - Odessa railway, was a major German communication and supply center that linked together northern and southern portions of Army Group South.
