On August 10th, the German 48th Army Corps received orders to break off its southward course and turn over the mission of capturing Nikolaev to the Hungarian Mobile Corps. The Hungarian attack commenced on the morning of the 12th. Despite initial successes, difficulties with communications and a reinforced and reorganized Soviet defense soon stopped the advance. The 13th saw much of the same stubborn resistance, with the encircled Soviets often fighting to the last man. The Hungarian 2nd Motorized Brigade achieved the greatest success this day, breaking through a minefield and capturing Hill 91.
Attacker: Hungarian (2nd Motorized Brigade)
Defender: Russian (Elements of the 101st Rifle Division)
