Battles in the East #2 - Uman Pocket and Guderian's Final Blitzkrieg 1941

Uman Pocket
Uman, 1941: Operation Barbarossa achieved huge successes. Army Group South had cleared Eastern Poland and in fierce engagements destroyed large elements of the armies of the Southwest Front. Budyonny was trying to regroup and make a stand west of the Dnieper River. Although most of their vast mechanized forces had been destroyed, these forces could not be left to attack the flanks of Army Group South. Von Rundstedt ordered Von Kleist to pocket and destroy these forces before they could retreat across the Dniepr. To support 1st Panzer Group, Reichenau’s 6th Army would pin Budyonny’s Southwest and Southern Fronts.

Guderian’s Final Blitzkrieg
Tula, 1941: Operation Typhoon, the German offensive to capture Moscow in late 1941, was in its final throes. To the south of Moscow, Guderian led his 2nd Panzer Group in a blitzkrieg attack to encircle Moscow. This was a race for Guderian between the ever-worsening weather, the exhaustion of his troops and the stiffening Soviet resistance. Key to the success or otherwise was the industrial city of Tula. The plan was simple. His forces would encircle the city from the south, capture it, and then drive north into Moscow and end the war. Zhukov knew Tula must be held. This would buy time for the Soviet reserve armies to arrive and counterattack. The frontline forces would need to hold and fight to the last man.
