Re: Re: OOB info about Kamenets-Podolsk pocket

Hi Alex.

Thanks for your help.I was sure you had all info about that...
Send me all maps of this battle you can. Donīt worry about russian language. I made the translation .


Re: Re: Re: OOB info about Kamenets-Podolsk pocket

Not all... I have much more info about other operations. This one, one of the most interesting, as there was used 5(!) tank armies from both sides is not well described in my sources . Recently I got ~6000 pages of text and dozens of new maps, but still can't handle them. I didn't find among them anything about this operation.
So the map I had sent ty is the single one I obtain now
Also I found OOB's for 60th and 38th Armies for Aug. 1943. No any info on the 1st Gds. Army
