  • Korsun-Shevchenkovsky

    Hi all,
    Where is it possible to find an OrBat or TOE of the 2 Russian Armies fighting in the reduction of the Korsun pocket ?
    I've found quite a lot on the German side (as usual !) but very few and scarce on the Russian one (as usual n2 !).
    So, I need your help to make an evaluation of the opposing forces.
    Thanks in advance.

    One of the best accounts in English is "From the Dnepr to the Vistula: Soviet Offensive Operations - November 1943 - August 1944., 1985 Art of War Symposium", which gives you an operational overview by David Glantz with order of battle and maps David Glantz offers a reprint of the proceedings, transcript as well as a map series of the operation daily by German and Soviet forces. He ships overseas. You may contact him at [email protected].

          All the time I tell you that for those cases I've made a special file to help everybody to decode Russian abbreviations into English
          It was specially designed for this purpose!

                Another question about the same subject :
                Now that I have the OrBat on Feb. 1st, thanks to Alex , I need to know the real strength of these troops.
                In "Red Army Tank Commanders, the Armoured guards" of R.N. Armstrong, I found some numbers but not so much.
                Where could I find more ?

                I'm not sure that the Russian Corps were so huge and so well equipped at this precise moment, after 6 months of offensive !

                @ RNArmstrong : I just realize ! Are you the author ?

                    Glad to know you, Colonel, even if it's through a website.
                    Do you have some more datas on the available tanks in 1st and 2nd Ukrainian Fronts ?
                    TIA
