  • Marinowka's Nose - Stalingrad

    Hi:

    I keep running into references to 'Marinowka's Nose'. I looked on maps, photographs, and satellite photos and could not find anything looking like a head with a nose.

    Today I looked at a map showing the German defensive line on 25.11.42 and noticed what appears to be a head with Marinowka being the nose. The head looks like a dog's head, to me. The line runs roughly Rynok-Borodkin-Dimetrijewka-Marinowka-Stary-Zybenko-Beketowka-Koeporosnoje.

    Is this the picture of the head?

    Regards,

    John

    It was the south-western 'protuberance' of the Kessel, defended by the 44th,
    29th Motorized and the 3rd Motorized Infantry Divisions and strengthened at
    the last moment by part of the 376th. Every regiment was desperately under
    strength. This area was smashed on 10 January by Operation Koltso 'Ring'.
    Hope this helps .

      Marinowka's Nose

      Greg:

      Now I get it. I was in the right area, but looking at the tip of the nose. From Marinowka, along a northeast line to Baburkin, it is the 3.JD, 29.JD, and the 44.JD, in that order. The 376.JD was located southeast of Karpovka, but it must have been moved north as reinforcement.

      Thanks for the help,

      John
