chart from the russian 39 army. But what's it about?

Post by Piet Duits » 29 Jan 2020 00:09

Hi,

I have included a chart I found here https://pamyat-naroda.ru/
Журнал боевых действий войск 39 А за июнь месяц 1944 г.
Описывает период с 01.06.1944 по 30.06.1944 г.
Журналы боевых действий. Дата создания документа: 21.10.1944 г.
Архив: ЦАМО, Фонд: 241, Опись: 2593, Дело: 375, Лист начала документа в деле: 1
Авторы документа: 39 А, полковник Сафонов, подполковник Свиньин
Описывает боевую операцию: 5-й удар. Разгром немцев в Белоруссии. Июнь-июль 1944 г.

The chart looks very interesting, if only I could understand what it is about :-)
Is there anyone here who could help me out?

Thanks in advance,

This is a comparison of Soviet and enemy forces facing each other along positions of Soviet 39A on 22nd of June 1944.

In the middle column we have width of the section of the front line in kilometers, with Soviet units on the right and enemy on the left.
Eg. in the first row, middle column we have 24 km section of Soviet 158 rifle division and 45,46 assault companies on the right. Enemy units facing these Soviet forces and specified just on the left.

In the columns 1-22 we have (above the line) - total number of battalions, companies, soldiers, rifles, mortars, AT guns, artillery, tanks, trucks, etc. Below the line numbers are per 1km. Eg. (2) Soviet column (in the 24 km row) has 20 rifle companies, that is 0.8 company per 1km.
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Greg,

wow, thank you very much! So this is indeed an important chart, IF the numbers are correct of course :-)
I am using deepl.com to translate the russian into german, but have trouble with some handwritten words, because I don't recognize the letter.
For example, П р о м ... б н и к . I think the letter on the dots should be ц but that would make no sense...

Thanks Smetanin Albert!
As if "normal" Russian isn't hard enough for non-russian readers, they mixed the styles....

It looks like 19 = Sturmgeschütze
18 are indeed the Kaliber

Well, when you check pages 79-85 of your file, you will find most of info from this chart in printed form.
