Bagration : German

In 1944 the war in the east had become critical for the Germans.
Determined defence, reinforced with local counterattacks, typified
their fighting all along the front. Panzer division ‘fire brigades’ were
rushed from one hot spot to another. German Generals such as
von Manstein, Hube, and von Saucken showed expert skill holding
back the Red Army against overwhelming odds, extracting their forces
from encirclement, holding Soviet breakthroughs, and delaying the
enemy advance at important bridgeheads. Fighting erupted all along
the front as the Soviets launched Operation Bagration. From Narva in
the north, through Byelorussia where the Red Army wedge hit the
hardest, down to Romania and Hungary, the German fought for every inch of ground.
