This topic sounds like it would be better suited for the "German Strategy & General German Military Discussion" subforum.

In mid-September 1942 for the sake of unity of command the XXXXVIII Corps was transferred under 6 Army control. That left Hoth with only two corps, mostly Romanian troops and passive tasks. Plans of active operations in his sector were considered but they were to be preceded by an ultimate mop-up of Stalingrad which was never completed.
