22 Oct of 1941.

Stalino.

The children walked totally ragged and abandoned.

From November 02 till December 01 of 1941, offensive against Dmitriewka and Diakowa.

Rain, snow and sudden frosts diminished the impulse of the German attack. The Russians tried at all possible costs to breach the German front in Diakowa and the the 1 GD’s neighbor division to the right had to move back 15 kilometers. After hard combats, that lasted 8 days, the Soviets were rejected towards their defensive position on Dmitriewka.

Hello to all :D; more about the 1 GD but this time in 1942 towards the Caucasus.................

With the II. /GAR 79 towards the Caucasus - Summer of 1942.

From May 17 till May 28 of 1942 - Counter-offensive and encirclement due south of Jarkov.

On May 17 of 1942. The spirit had been encouraged and again we were advancing; we had left back our winters’ positions towards the departure's line for the attack. The good communications constituted an essential factor.

At 04:00 hours the attack began; Bachmutowo was the immediate goal of it. A storm of projectiles of all the calibers fell on the Russian positions and the assault on the objective was happily launched.
