Recapture of Kharkov: March 11 – 15 1943
Third Battle of Kharkov (Donets Campaign)
SS-Panzerkorps entering Kharkov
At March 10 1943, SS-Obergruppenführer Paul Hausser pulled together his SS-Panzerkorps into an attack formation. For five days the Waffen-SS men battled through fanatical resistance in the concrete high-rise housing blocks that dominated the approaches to the city centre of Kharkov.
