The bombardment also failed to have enough of an effect. The Soviet forces held their fire until the German forces were well within range before opening fire, and little progress was made.

Von Richthofen was angered by the fear of the infantry and called the day "a real disappointment". The pace of operations exhausted the machines and men.

Often crews did not get out of their aircraft and made three or four sorties without rest. The 'Schwerer Gustav' weapon continued to fire against ammunition dumps, which produced no effect.

Nevertheless, the nd Infantry Division was able to work its way up to the river. Meanwhile, the German 22nd Infantry Division attacked further to the east.

Some Soviet reinforcements of the 79th Naval Infantry Brigade, protecting this sector, were lost in the bombardment, but the main defences held out.

The brigade held most of its forces in reserve, while committing only a single company to cover the hilly terrain on the Belbek river front.

German assault groups breached the first and reserve lines by The German forces had to negotiate heavily mined areas, slowing them down and allowing the Soviet forces to make a partial recovery.

The remote-control demolition units were not effective as the terrain was unsuitable. By the town of Belbek was secured.

The 22nd Infantry Division made considerable progress in breaking through the defenses of the 25th Rifle Division. The 50th Infantry Division supported the 22nd's left flank.

It was flanked by several smaller forts to the east. Now the nd Infantry Divisions was ordered to conduct a converging pincer movement on the Maxim Gorky fortress in conjunction with the 22nd and 50th Infantry Divisions, to trap its defenders against the coast.

The nd pushed into the 95th Rifle Division's positions north of the fort, while the other two divisions attacked in a flanking move.

While the Germans did make progress, nearing the main railway station just southeast of Maxim Gorky , they were stopped from achieving a full-scale breakthrough by the nd Rifle Division.

The 22nd and 50th Infantry Divisions had been heavily shelled by mortar fire from the 25th Rifle Division facing them east of the Haccius Ridge, which caused heavy casualties.

By hours, the German attack was spent. LIV Corps' losses on 7 June amounted to 2, casualties in four divisions, including killed. It had also expended 3, tons of ammunition.

The nd Division had exhausted all of its basic munitions load by midday. The Soviet casualties had also been severe. It is estimated that three battalions were effectively destroyed.

Manstein recognised the seriousness of the failure on 8 June. He was worried that the nd Infantry Division, locked in combat with the 79th Naval Brigade and 95th and nd Rifle Divisions north of the city on the Belbek river front, was "approaching the end of its strength".

Richthofen responded by ordering attacks against Soviet supply lines. The same day, German bombers, including KG , began attacks on Soviet shipping.

They sank the destroyer Sovershennyy and the survey vessel Gyuys , with the 4, ton transport Abkhaziya and destroyer Svobodnyy following them on 10 June.

The period between 8—12 June descended into a battle of attrition. Several Soviet counterattacks were repulsed with heavy losses.

The Soviet unit tried counterattacking on 10 June, but was repulsed. The Soviet formation was effectively destroyed, with the support of the Luftwaffe, which used anti-personnel bombs against Soviet infantry caught in the open.

Only one battalion the Soviet 1st Batt. In the south, XXX Corps made no progress in four days of attacks. They suffered casualties at the hands of the th Rifle Division.

The 28th Light and 72nd Infantry Divisions had succeeded in puncturing the Soviet lines opposite the th and th Rifle Divisions.

The outer defences were broken in some parts, but the most were still in Soviet hands on 12 June. The main belt on the Sapun Ridge Sapun-gora was unbroken.

Soviet casualties amounted to 2,, including captured. As the Germans made slow progress toward the main train station, Petrov withdrew the battered nd Rifle Division and replaced it with th Rifle Division.

The 95th Rifle Division halted the nd Division's progress in the north. Counterattacks by the Soviet th Division aimed at the hinge between the German nd and 50th Divisions were repulsed by the Luftwaffe.

The Red Army had committed all of its reserves and were stretched dangerously thin. One more push might collapse the northern sector.

But at this time, the tired German infantry were running short on reinforcements and ammunition. In contrast, the Black Sea Fleet was bringing in reinforcements through Luftwaffe attacks.

On 12 June the cruiser Molotov and destroyer Bditel'nyy brought in 2, soldiers, tons of ammunition and 28 artillery pieces.

The Luftwaffe turned its attentions to these convoys. On 15 June another 3, soldiers, tons of ammunition, 30 tons of fuel and 12 tons of provisions reinforced the Soviet positions.

The Luftwaffe had flown 1, sorties on 11 June, dropping tons of bombs. The consumption rate of ammunition was putting von Richthofen's logistical network under strain and he could no longer afford to fly massed bombing raids.

On 11 June, he surmised there was less than two days worth of munitions left, requiring a change of tactics.

Instead of carpet bombing, fewer targets would be attacked simultaneously, and aircraft would strike at designated targets in long and narrow lines.

This was designed to maintain accurate pressure without wasting ordnance. Even this failed to alleviate shortages in the long term.

By 17 June, scarcity of aviation fuel meant the Luftwaffe dropped only instead of the planned 1, tons of bombs.

Adding to the Luftwaffe's troubles in the sector, von Richthofen was transferred to prepare the Corps' Headquarters near Kursk support the nearing Operation Blue.

He retained formal command, at least until given control of Luftflotte 4, but Wolfgang von Wild took over air operations over Sevastopol.

It was a tough position. The fortifications allowed the Soviet forces to concentrate artillery against breakthroughs and machine gun posts protected the fort from southern and eastern attacks, but it was vulnerable from a northern assault.

In addition, only men from the th Rifle Division were stationed there. The Germans launched their assault on the position at on 13 June with just men.

The 3rd Battalion was assigned to suppress Soviet machine gun and mortar positions located on the southeast as a diversion.

The 1st Battalion, supported by five StuG assault guns, two 37mm guns and an Engineer Company were to serve as the main effort. Some and men were committed respectively in each unit.

German bombardment began on 12 June. Artillery fire from 'Dora' had failed to neutralise the fort. At the German infantry attacked.

The fog of war intervened. The Soviet mortar teams were not suppressed, and a fierce battle developed which lasted until In the heavy fighting a large number of company commanders were killed.

As the Germans seized this vital fort, the neighbouring Volga fort realised it had fallen and shelled the position. A company-sized counterattack by the Soviet forces was wiped out by German small arms fire.

The Germans declared the position secured at , though some bunkers held out until German casualties amounted to 32 dead, wounded and two missing — half of the force committed.

Soviet casualties amounted to 20 captured, the remainder were killed. The fall of Fort Stalin meant the Soviet defenses in the north were on the verge of collapse.

The 95th Rifle Division had been halting the nd Infantry Division's progress since the start of the offensive.

The nd was reinforced by one Regiment from the idle 46th Infantry Division near Kerch. The German 24th, 50th and Romanian 4th Mountain Divisions were to maintain pressure in the central sector while they pushed towards the Mekensia and Gatani Valley and the Chernaya River opening at Severnaya Bay.

For three days, 14—16 June, the battle continued as the Axis advanced towards Sevastopol in the face of Soviet resistance.

The front opposite the 25th Soviet Rifles was still strong, but the northern flank was giving way. The 79th Naval Brigade had only 35 percent of its fighting strength remaining.

The battles continued to grind on until 20 June. In six days, XXX Corps had lost 2, men. In exchange the outer defences of the th Rifle Division had been broken and the formation effectively destroyed.

Still, the German advance on Balaklava had been halted. The Germans had not yet reached its outer defences and the Sapun Ridge to the east of the town was still under Soviet control.

By 15 June, some 1, Soviet soldiers and 1, mortar bombs had been captured indicating the Soviet forces had plenty of ammunition after two weeks of battle.

Despite shortages of aviation fuel and ordnance, the Luftwaffe had played a significant part in the success of the German operations.

From 13 June, up until 17 June, it flew 3, sorties and dropped 3, tons of bombs. This average of sorties per day was only a slight drop from the opening 11 days.

Bombing targeted hangars, port facilities, flak and artillery batteries, barracks, supply depots with high explosive bombs. Most of the city was engulfed in flames.

The Germans believed the strike had knocked it out as it stopped firing its artillery. The artillery bombardment began on 16 June.

In the morning the attack by the reinforced nd Division collapsed the line. The Soviet garrison held out in tunnels, capitulating on 20 June.

The 22nd and 24th Infantry Divisions advanced from the northeast. They employed their Goliath remote control demolition vehicles with success against the timber bunkers.

One exploded prematurely and two were knocked out by a minefield. The 24th Infantry Division in particular made extensive use of its Nebelwerfer rockets.

The 95th and nd Rifle Divisions had been lost, as well as the majority of the fortified defences.

Only the 25th Rifle remained in the line. Petrov rushed up the th Naval Brigade with an extra 2, men, which was landed on the 12—13 June.

It prevented German forces reaching Severnaya Bay that day. The Luftwaffe was also engaged in applying pressure to Soviet naval forces.

On 18 June the cruiser Kharkov was severely damaged. Attacks on 19 June by KG 51 destroyed the anti-aircraft platform in Severnaya Bay, allowing air operations to continue unopposed.

The lack of anti-aircraft cover made it impossible for the minelayer Komintern to enter the harbour with reinforcements. The lack of supplies resulted in Soviet ammunition and fuel supplies slipping to critical levels on 20 June.

The Luftwaffe was experiencing shortages of its own. The daily average of sorties was now reduced by 40 percent. Due to the shortages of bombs, all ordnance had to be dropped individually to minimise wastage.

Some experienced crews had to conduct dive-bombing attacks 25—30 times a day. KG 51's Ju 88 crews in particular had felt the strain.

The pressure took its toll, and between the 18—23 June, the entire Soviet defence line in the north collapsed.

At the battery and the division surrendered to the nd Infantry Division. Further south the 24th Infantry Division captured Bartenyevka, on the mouth of the Bay.

The 22nd Infantry Division had reached the north of the Bay on the same day. The Soviet th Naval Brigade counterattacked, but it was destroyed without artillery and air support.

On 20 June, the 24th Infantry Division tackled the main obstacle remaining on the north side of the Bay. The Germans tried to use the remote-controlled mines to break into the North Fort, but they were knocked out.

At on 21 June the Fort fell after a sustained infantry attack. Around Soviet prisoners were taken. Most Soviet units were exhausted and out of ammunition, surrendering quickly.

Others made attempts at a last stand. Some tried to evacuate across to the southern side by boat, but they were picked off by German artillery.

While the main actions were playing out in the north, XXX Corps alternated between attack and defence. The Soviet forces held the Sapun Ridge and could observe German movements.

On occasion they could deliver effective counter battery fire. FH 18 medium howitzers. In the centre, the Romanians took up the slack.

The 18th Infantry, 1st, and 4th Mountain Divisions, supported by guns, gradually advanced up the Chernaya River towards the mouth of the river and Severnaya Bay.

The Luftwaffe had contributed 4, sorties in seven days up until 26 June. They dropped 3, tons of bombs. As Sevastopol is being evacuated under siege, Boris carries a broken and traumatized Lyudmila to a submarine that is evacuating the city.

While panicked civilians attempt to board, Lyudmila realizes that Boris gave her his own papers to leave the city.

A voiceover reveals that Boris, Masha, and countless civilians and soldiers died defending the city from the Germans. Lyudmila's military record makes her a vital propaganda tool for the Soviets, who parade her around the world to collect funds for the fight against fascism.

Encouraged by a meeting with the American First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, Lyudmila attempts to embrace her femininity by wearing a skirt during a speech in New York.

Though the Soviet propaganda minister on tour with her forces her to change back in to a Red Army uniform, she makes a vital impression on the largely male crowd, asking, "Don't you think, gentlemen, that you have been hiding behind my back for too long?

Roosevelt later visits Lyudmila after the war in Moscow, during a trip. The two attend the opera together with Lyudmila's son, who is implied to be Leonid's as well.

The filming began in after the first archive material devoted to Pavlichenko was examined. Serhiy Mokrytskyi, who is better known as a cinematographer, served as director; after his arrival, the plot was altered to more closely match Pavlichenko's life.

During production, there was concern of the growing political tension between Russia and Ukraine. However, the film was successfully released in both countries on the same day, in each country's own respective language.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. A better title might have been, "Lyudmila's War. I found the film to be very well done and once into it, had to see it through.

The war scenes were vivid and believable, and the characters were played realistically. One could see the changes that overcame the heroine, Lyudmila Pavlichenko, who was initially tepid about killing but warmed to the task--to the point of actually relishing in it.

She reveled in competing with men--even in an environment that was nominally committed to gender equality.

We witnessed a transformation from a studious girl, who was never appreciated by her stern military father, to a killing machine who refused to leave the battlefield, even when seriously wounded --with snatches of the frailties of emerging womanhood.

It is a complex tale, one that should be watched at least twice to realize its full impact. Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends.

The naval brigades formed had four to six battalions of 4, men, allowing them to absorb significant losses.

These forces were well armed, having a variety of artillery and mortar battalions. Almost 20 percent of the Coastal Army were naval personnel.

In the Separate Coastal Army, the strongest divisions were the 95th, th, nd, and th Rifle Divisions. They each had around 7, soldiers, the rest of the Red Army units having around 5, personnel.

Some 5, reinforcements made it into Sevastopol in May However, Petrov's army lacked tanks and anti-aircraft guns.

The garrison also lacked food supplies and mortar ammunition, which would severely sap Soviet strength.

Poor communications between headquarters and the front lines were also an issue. Petrov found it difficult to respond to Axis attacks quickly.

Red Army : [20]. Soviet Black Sea Fleet: [21]. The German 11th Army's first task was to break through into the Crimea. The cities of Perekop and Ishun guarded the narrow corridor of land which linked the Crimea to the bulk of Ukraine.

The Soviet forces launched a counteroffensive against the 11th Army's flank at Melitopol. Manstein withdrew his other corps in order to deal with it.

The resulting battle ended with the destruction of two attacking Soviet Armies. By the time that this threat had been dealt with, the Stavka had rushed in reinforcements and established another defence line at Ishun.

The Soviet forces enjoyed local air superiority and armored reserves. They also outnumbered the attacking Wehrmacht.

In spite of this, the defending Soviet 51st Army was pushed back. The Wehrmacht suffered 5, casualties in 12 days of combat, and the Red Army many more.

By the end of October, the 51st Army was crushed and in full retreat into the Crimea. The situation in the air also changed.

Arriving Jagdgeschwader Fighter Wings won air superiority for the Axis. Over the two days they destroyed 33 Soviet aircraft for one loss.

In the six days from 18 to 24 October Soviet aircraft were lost, of them to Luftwaffe fighters.

With the front collapsing and the Axis closing in on Sevastopol, Vice-Admiral Oktyabrsky assumed command of the port on 4 November The city had a civilian population of , in , and most were sent to work on the three defence lines around the port.

Only the 7th and 8th Naval Infantry Brigades were available for combat in the port. More naval infantry were formed from ships in the harbor.

The 8th Naval Infantry Brigade was sent to guard the northeastern approaches near the Mamachai-Belbek line. The 7th 5, men was deployed in the center, near Mekenzyya.

With only 20, soldiers, Oktyabrsky relied heavily on his 12 coastal battalions to slow down the Axis. The 62nd Fighter Brigade contributed 61 fighters, which were able to achieve temporary air superiority.

On 30 October, the Soviet defences detected the spearhead of the German nd Infantry Division and shelled it at on 1 November using Battery 30's mm coastal guns.

Wehrmacht lacked sufficient air and mobile units to force a decision. Once there, it would attack Sevastopol from the east.

The nd made reasonable progress, but was stopped on 2 November by the 8th Naval Brigade. The Wehrmacht suffered casualties. Manstein ordered a halt for a week, whilst bringing up reserves.

Oktyabrsky used his fleet to bring in a further 23, men from the Caucasus. On 9 November, Petrov's Army was brought in, bringing 19, soldiers, ten T tanks, artillery pieces, and mortars.

The Red Army now had 52, troops in the area of the city. The Luftwaffe was considered weak the bulk of it was engaged in the Battle of Moscow , so the Soviet Navy kept the heavy cruiser Krasny Kavkaz , light cruisers Krasny Krym and Chervona Ukraina , and seven destroyers to protect the port.

The Luftwaffe did what it could to disrupt the Soviet defences. On 31 October, the destroyer Bodryy shelled German positions along the coastline.

StG 77 Ju 87s attacked and wounded 50 of its crew by strafing her deck and superstructure with machinegun fire. On 2 November Junkers Ju 88s of KG 51 scored several hits on the cruiser Voroshilov , and put it out of action for months.

On 7 November He s from KG 26 sank the liner Armeniya evacuating soldiers and civilians from Sevastopol, with only eight of the 5, passengers surviving.

But with the Luftwaffe units being dispatched to other sectors and theatres, the Soviet forces again achieved air superiority with 59 aircraft 39 serviceable.

Manstein wanted to launch an attack as soon as possible, but his logistical lines were poor. Wanting to avoid strong Soviet forces protecting the north of the port, including the 95th Rifle Division, Manstein chose to press the center and southern Soviet defences.

He ordered the German 50th Infantry Division to probe the center of the Soviet line east of the Chernaya river.

The 72nd Rifle Division, with the support of the coastal batteries, moved in to stop the attack. The 72nd Infantry Division continued towards Balaklava , and the 22nd Infantry Division joined the assault.

Assisted by shelling from two light cruisers and the battleship Parizhskaya Kommuna , the Red Army halted this attack, and Manstein called off the offensive on 21 November, having lost 2, men.

Manstein recognised that he could not take the port quickly, and was going to have to organise a proper set-piece offensive. With German offensive operations suspended in December, Manstein found himself the only commander on the Eastern Front with an offensive mission.

He was not ready to carry out his attack until 17 December. In the meantime, Oktyabrsky used the interval to sail the 11, soldiers of the th Rifle Division into Sevastopol between 7—13 December.

Soviet engineers began laying extensive minefields and barbed-wire belts. By the time of the Axis attack, Petrov's force held a strong defensive position.

The naval commander demanded that Petrov hold the coast along the northern flank of Sevastopol on the Belbek River in order to retain Coastal Battery 10, an artillery complex near Mamaschai.

On the other hand, the German LIV Corps had only 15, men in its four infantry divisions 22nd, 24th, 50th, and nd. Over 7, soldiers in the German 11th Army were on the sick list at that time.

It was also short of artillery ammunition and heavy artillery. In order to commit as many forces to the battle as possible, Manstein left the weak XLII Corps, containing just the 46th Infantry Division and two Romanian brigades, to protect the entire front from Yalta to Kerch.

The attack began at on 17 December. The 22nd Infantry Division attacked the 8th Naval Brigade on the Belbek River, pushing west towards the coast, while the 50th and nd Infantry Divisions conducted fixing attacks on the Soviet center.

The 22nd succeeded in rolling up the flank of the Naval Brigade after five days of fighting. However, Oktyabrsky ordered its retirement south towards Sevastopol, abandoning Mamaschai and forming a new front north of Belbek city and the Belbek river.

Only minor gains were made against the nd Rifle Division, even with help from the Romanian 1st Mountain Brigade.

The 79th Naval Brigade and th Rifle Division arrived by sea as reinforcements, using the long winter nights and their naval superiority.

Meanwhile, the battleship Parizhskaya Kommuna shelled German forces whenever they threatened a breakthrough. The offensive came to an abrupt end when the Red Army staged an amphibious landing at Kerch.

It succeeded in gaining and sustaining a bridgehead for five months. This allowed Manstein to concentrate all of his resources against Sevastopol for the first time.

The front over Sevastopol grew quiet and a stalemate ensued. The Luftwaffe kept up the pressure on Soviet sea communications and although supplies still made it through, Vice Admiral Oktyabrsky, commanding the Black Sea Fleet, was forced to reduce the number of coastal bombardment missions.

Sevastopol was still a formidable obstacle. It was also home to the Black Sea Fleet. Enhancing the manmade defences was the forested, rugged terrain.

To the north of Severnaya Bay there were 11 batteries and strongpoints. They were defended by the First Coastal Army.

Soviet engineers laid thousands of mines, including PMD-6 wooden anti-personnel mines, TMD wooden anti-tank mines, and barbed-wire obstacle belts.

Petrov, commanding the Independent Coastal Army, had a powerful artillery pool. Petrov had on strength some artillery pieces and howitzers.

Among those were 34 mm and 40 mm howitzers and mortars. The battles of the Crimean campaign had taken their toll, and scarcely any tank and anti-aircraft artillery support were available.

A further force, under Major-General Petr Morgunov, was added. The Coastal Artillery Force was semi-independent for much of the siege, and had an initial strength of 12 batteries and 45 guns, although more were added during By this time, the Axis was facing a serious manpower and artillery shortage.

The German 11th Army's divisions had anywhere between 35 and 75 percent of their initial strength. The German 22nd Infantry Division was the strongest division, and was only short 1, personnel, while the weakest was the nd Infantry Division, which was short 2, men.

The th Infantry Division had to collapse one of its regiments to bring the others up to strength.

The German infantry force was a fragile force at Sevastopol and Manstein could not afford to squander it.

German doctrine stressed bypassing strongpoints, but since this was not possible, German infantry were forced to reduce one fort after another.

Some 65 Sturmgeschütz III assault guns were available to support them. The assault was based around battalion-strength infantry assault groups supported by a platoon of engineers and a few assault guns.

Two pioneer battalions were attached to each division to spearhead the attack and break through fixed and fortified defences.

The th Panzer Battalion, a remote-controlled tank unit using the Goliath tracked mine , was made available for destroying fortifications.

Most of these were under the command of LIV Corps, the main assault force. To increase this arsenal, a number of super-heavy artillery pieces were made available.

Most of it was used up before the infantry assault. More useful to the German infantry were the two mm railway guns.

Artillery acquired from Czechoslovakia after the Munich Agreement , the Skoda mm Model howitzer was also available.

Overall, the German 11th Army's artillery was a collection of modern, obsolete, and foreign-built weapons. To reinforce the 11th Army, the Romanians were committed to the assault.

The Romanian 18th Infantry Division was at full strength, and plenty of Romanian infantry were available.

However, the 18th Division was inexperienced and made up of reservists. The Romanian 1st Mountain Division was considered an elite force, and its addition was to prove useful.

They had guns available, but virtually no engineers. The weakness of their artillery and supporting arms made the Romanian X Corps reliant on the German forces for anything other than set-piece infantry attacks.

The Luftwaffe had to compensate for the Axis artillery limitations. A powerful air armada was brought together. Dive-bomber support from StG 77 was also given to Richthofen.

He could call upon three gruppen of Ju 87s. The Luftwaffe could not support the land assault and maintain pressure on Soviet sea communications alone.

With only KG 26 engaged in anti-shipping operations against Soviet sea communications, the OKW looked to the Kriegsmarine to supply Schnellboot S-Boat motor torpedo boats to help eliminate Soviet shipping supplying and evacuating the port.

The time it took to dismantle and move the ton boats by rail to Romanian ports was going to be too long. In a rare appeal for help, the German forces turned to their Italian allies, aware of their expertise with motor torpedo boat operations.

The Regia Marina sent the st Naval Squadron, which brought nine torpedo boats and nine coastal submarines under the command of the highly competent Capitano di Fregata Francesco Mimbelli.

The Italian boats were only 24 tons and the submarines were 35 tons, which made them easier to transport by truck and barge.

The squadron was based at Feodosiya and Yalta, which made it the only Axis naval force to participate in the siege. Manstein demanded an all-out assault by the Luftwaffe before the main ground action began.

The 8th Air Corps began its bombing campaign along the north and southeast of the city. At the same time, German medium bombers conducted rolling attacks on the city, which included all units except LG 1, which engaged in suppressing anti-aircraft installations.

Oil, electricity, water pumps, harbor facilities, and submarine bases were attacked by StG 77 Ju 87s. Von Richthofen watched the bombing from an observation post close to the front.

The targets were badly damaged, and fires broke out all over the port city. The Luftwaffe flew missions and dropped tons of high explosive on the first day.

Despite heavy anti-aircraft fire, just one Ju 87 was lost. While the bulk of the Luftwaffe was busy with the land battle, III.

They sank the tanker Mikhail Gromov , but the flotilla leader Tashkent , the destroyer Bezuprechnyy , and transport Abkhaziya escaped to bring 2, soldiers into the fortress.

Air support continued with sorties on 3 June, on 4 June, and on 5 June, with some German crews flying daily averages of 18 missions.

The heavy-caliber weapons were aimed at Soviet concrete bunkers. Ivan Laskin , commanding the nd Rifle Division in the northern sector recalled, "Bombers in groups of twenty to thirty attacked us without caring for their targets.

They came in, wave after wave, and literally ploughed up the earth throughout our defence area. German aircraft were in the air above our positions all day long.

The sky was clouded by smoke from explosions of thousands of bombs and shells. An enormous dark grey cloud of smoke and dust rose higher and higher and finally eclipsed the sun".

On 7 June, Manstein ordered the ground assault. The Luftwaffe carried out 1, sorties and dropped 1, tons of bombs on Soviet positions, but the Soviet infantry clung on.

LIV Corps was to strike the main blow. Situated on the northeast edge of the city, they struck along the lines of least resistance, across the Belbek river while the German XXX and Romanian Mountain Corps conducted holding attacks in the south and center, respectively.

Both the latter corps did not start major operations until 8 June. Between 2 and 6 June, the German 11th Army expended nine percent of its munitions 42, rounds, amounting to 2, tons of munitions on pre-advance shelling.

The railway guns also fired a few rounds at the main fortifications and rail lines, but most missed by some distance. Soviet ammunition dumps were also targeted by these weapons, with no effect.

This was the only success of the German super-heavy guns, which did not have an impact commensurate with their expense.

The Luftwaffe had a greater impact, using its Ju 87s to knock out the communications systems of the fort. On the morning of 7 June , the German infantry began advancing cautiously.

The German infantry advanced behind air and artillery support. The infantry seemed afraid of their fire support and did not advance close enough behind it.

The bombardment also failed to have enough of an effect. The Soviet forces held their fire until the German forces were well within range before opening fire, and little progress was made.

Von Richthofen was angered by the fear of the infantry and called the day "a real disappointment". The pace of operations exhausted the machines and men.

Often crews did not get out of their aircraft and made three or four sorties without rest. The 'Schwerer Gustav' weapon continued to fire against ammunition dumps, which produced no effect.

Nevertheless, the nd Infantry Division was able to work its way up to the river. Meanwhile, the German 22nd Infantry Division attacked further to the east.

Some Soviet reinforcements of the 79th Naval Infantry Brigade, protecting this sector, were lost in the bombardment, but the main defences held out.

The brigade held most of its forces in reserve, while committing only a single company to cover the hilly terrain on the Belbek river front.

German assault groups breached the first and reserve lines by The German forces had to negotiate heavily mined areas, slowing them down and allowing the Soviet forces to make a partial recovery.

The remote-control demolition units were not effective as the terrain was unsuitable. By the town of Belbek was secured. The 22nd Infantry Division made considerable progress in breaking through the defenses of the 25th Rifle Division.

The 50th Infantry Division supported the 22nd's left flank. It was flanked by several smaller forts to the east. Now the nd Infantry Divisions was ordered to conduct a converging pincer movement on the Maxim Gorky fortress in conjunction with the 22nd and 50th Infantry Divisions, to trap its defenders against the coast.

The nd pushed into the 95th Rifle Division's positions north of the fort, while the other two divisions attacked in a flanking move.

While the Germans did make progress, nearing the main railway station just southeast of Maxim Gorky , they were stopped from achieving a full-scale breakthrough by the nd Rifle Division.

The 22nd and 50th Infantry Divisions had been heavily shelled by mortar fire from the 25th Rifle Division facing them east of the Haccius Ridge, which caused heavy casualties.

By hours, the German attack was spent. LIV Corps' losses on 7 June amounted to 2, casualties in four divisions, including killed.

It had also expended 3, tons of ammunition. The nd Division had exhausted all of its basic munitions load by midday. The Soviet casualties had also been severe.

It is estimated that three battalions were effectively destroyed. Manstein recognised the seriousness of the failure on 8 June.

He was worried that the nd Infantry Division, locked in combat with the 79th Naval Brigade and 95th and nd Rifle Divisions north of the city on the Belbek river front, was "approaching the end of its strength".

Richthofen responded by ordering attacks against Soviet supply lines. The same day, German bombers, including KG , began attacks on Soviet shipping.

They sank the destroyer Sovershennyy and the survey vessel Gyuys , with the 4, ton transport Abkhaziya and destroyer Svobodnyy following them on 10 June.

The period between 8—12 June descended into a battle of attrition. Several Soviet counterattacks were repulsed with heavy losses. The Soviet unit tried counterattacking on 10 June, but was repulsed.

The 95th Rifle Division halted the nd Division's progress in the north. Counterattacks by the Soviet th Division aimed at the hinge between the German nd and 50th Divisions were repulsed by the Luftwaffe.

The Red Army had committed all of its reserves and were stretched dangerously thin. One more push might collapse the northern sector.

But at this time, the tired German infantry were running short on reinforcements and ammunition.

In contrast, the Black Sea Fleet was bringing in reinforcements through Luftwaffe attacks. On 12 June the cruiser Molotov and destroyer Bditel'nyy brought in 2, soldiers, tons of ammunition and 28 artillery pieces.

The Luftwaffe turned its attentions to these convoys. On 15 June another 3, soldiers, tons of ammunition, 30 tons of fuel and 12 tons of provisions reinforced the Soviet positions.

The Luftwaffe had flown 1, sorties on 11 June, dropping tons of bombs. The consumption rate of ammunition was putting von Richthofen's logistical network under strain and he could no longer afford to fly massed bombing raids.

On 11 June, he surmised there was less than two days worth of munitions left, requiring a change of tactics.
