From February - March of '43 this city was in the middle of a firestorm . The city traded hands three times. The Russians , trying to capitalize on the huge defeat of the German Army in Stalingrad , set Their sites on this Ukrainian jewel and believe that the Germans to be in full retreat . Field Marshal Manstein guided the newly formed SS-Panzercorps along with Gross Deutschland , LASSH & Das Reich's Pz.Gren.Divisions in a planned retreat and in mid-February launches a battle that lasts for three weeks . An intense battle that may have very well depleted the Germans of Their crack Panzer Corps.
