The 320th Infantry Division faced disaster. While trying to withdraw across the Donets, the unit found itself burdened with more than a thousand wounded and pinned between the frozen river and the advancing Red Army. News of the unitís imminent demise, and a request for help, were brought before Joseph Dietrich, commander of the Leibstandarte Waffen SS Division. He withdrew Joachim Peiperís Panzergrenadier battalion, without hesitation, and sent it to the rescue. . .
