House to house fighting in Kharkov

Generalfeldmarschall Erich von Manstein's SS-Panzerkorps complete the retaking of Kharkov. Image: Waffen-SS panzers cautiously move down a street, while SS-Panzergrenadiers hold their rifles at the ready, keeping a sharp watch for Soviet snipers. At the left side of the photograph there is a SS-Panzergrenadier with a magnetic limper-bomb, a Hafthohlladung, also known as the "Panzerknacker".
