Don River, 125 kms W of Stalingrad, July 22nd 1942: After the spring battles around Kharkov, the Germans launched Fall Blau, the dual drive on the Caucasus and Volga at Stalingrad. The Soviet army was conducting a fighting withdrawal, but was now pushed into the natural funnel of the great Don Bend, with Kalach as the outlet of the funnel, just a short march from Stalingrad on the Volga. The German plan was to reach Kalach, trapping the Soviet 62nd Army in the bend, and thus opening the way to Stalingrad. [Size, large]
