Tuesday 29 December 1942, Soviets
The Voronezh Front keeps marching westward. Three tank brigades from the 65th Army crossed the Oskol near Novyy Oskol to be repulsed by the Hungarian security troops posted there.
The 47th Army’s tanks and the 57th Guards Rifle Division reach Valuyki and destroy the 7. Panzer-Division around the town.
Due to command problems at the STAVKA, the North Caucasus stops its offensive. Sa’alsk is now on a defensive posture.
Despite the new orders, the 58th Army maintain the pressure east of Krasnodar.
The North Caucasus Front is not really able to resist to a counter-attack...
