Historical Background:
At the beginning of Operation Barbarossa, German tanks of Panzergruppe Guderian broke through the Soviet lines and made large encirclements, trapping the Soviet 4th and 10th armies in the Bialystok pocket. On June 27, German infantry of the 29.ID arrived in the area of Slonim and established a new front line around the village of Ozernitsa. They soon saw thousands of Soviet infantry, cavalry, T-26 tanks and an armored train advancing to trying and exit the pocket. When the Germans opened fire, it was a slaughter, the machine-guns swept the infantry and cavalry while the new 50mm AT guns destroyed the tanks and the armored train. The attempted breakthrough by the Russians was a bloody defeat.
