During the winter of 1943-1944, the Red Army mounted major offensive operations against Hitler's Wehrmacht. By January 1944 the Red Army had penetrated the vaunted Eastern Wall along the Dnepr river and was preparing to lunge deep into the Ukraine. In mid-January 1944, Stalin ordered his 1st and 2nd Ukrainian Fronts to crush German forces defending the last portion of the Eastern Wall in German hands, the salient around Korsun'-Shevchenkovskii. The ensuing offensive destroyed a major portion of two German army corps and precipitated the subsequent fighting withdrawal of German forces from the entire Ukraine.
