After nearly a week of exhausting combat, the Russian 32nd Rifle Division had proved to be as effective as its German counterparts. In order to speed up the advance towards the Soviet capital, the Germans were compelled to break through Russian resistance at all costs. Panzer-Regiment 7 sent forward von Bülow, and his Kampfgruppe, supported by the last AFVs still capable of combat after that terrible week. This time, the only remaining German option was to break through the Russian lines.
