A Soviet Front of three armies was to launch an assault from their salient to capture Kharkov in early 1942. The Axis had a corps of six infantry divisions (four of them Romanian) defending, with a 'Panzerkorps' (2 divisions) ready to counterattack.
My thanks to all who made the day a success - notably to Tom for arranging access to Shrivenham, Kiera for a splendid lunch, Chris for running the air game and the COs (Martin and Jim) for helping to minimise my workload.
More reports (and photos) will follow, charting the course of the three-day battle.
