Hermann Hoth finally gets his 4th Panzer Army on the move, in what will turn out to be the final successful Blitzkrieg of the Stalingrad Campaign. The 48th Panzer Corps smashed through the 126th Rifle Division and raced off towards Stalingrad, causing chaos in the 64th Army. Shumilov reacts by pulling back his tanks, but the 64th Army is taken by surprise and is out of position. Eremenko must accept the inevitable – that his line is broken and that the city of Stalingrad is probably about to fall.

ABOUT TIK ?
History isn’t as boring as some people think, and my goal is to get people talking about it. I also want to dispel the myths and distortions that ruin our perception of the past by asking a simple question – “But is this really the case?”. I have a 2:1 Degree in History and a passion for early 20th Century conflicts (mainly WW2). I’m therefore approaching this like I would an academic essay. Lots of sources, quotes, references and so on. Only the truth will do.
This video is discussing events or concepts that are academic, educational and historical in nature. This video is for informational purposes and was created so we may better understand the past and learn from the mistakes others have made.
