About this product Product Information In late July , Hitler ordered Army Group South to seize the Crimea as part of its operations to secure the Ukraine and the Donets Basin, in order to protect the vital Romanian oil refineries at Ploesti from Soviet air attack.

Von Manstein’s triumph
However, due to what Erickson describes as Kuznetsov's 'sticking blindly to the prewar plan', which anticipated a seaborne assault, and leaving the Perekop and Sivash approaches too thinly held, Erich von Manstein , leading the German assault, was able to push past the defenses. In November the army was evacuated from the Taman Peninsula and it joined the Transcaucasian Front briefly known as the Caucasian Front after 30 December Kozlov , formally established on 28 January , which hammered repeatedly at Von Manstein's Eleventh Army.
Army commander Lieutenant General Vladimir Nikolayevich Lvov was killed by bomb fragments on 11 May while changing his command post. Three armies 44th, 47th, and 51st , 21 divisions, , men, tanks, and nearly 3, guns were lost.
