Between 8:00 and 8:30 hours the kampfgruppe «Valder», in accordance with the plan, began to explore the flank of the division in the direction of Otradnoye-Lebedi. Due to unfavorable weather conditions, difficulties with the movement of transport. The situation in the city is calm, before noon there were no enemy attacks. Enemy tanks were not detected by reconnaissance, but were fixed to the infantry company of the enemy on the march. The mood of our troops is excellent, the command is preparing for battles. As a reconnaissance suddenly ran into an ambush. In brief battle the entire patrol is destroyed, the wounded sent to the rear.
The grove was filled with advanced enemy patrols, on the roads the enemy quickly shifts reserves. Our sniper disguised in a rye field. Despite the increased threat, the offensive of the Kampfgruppe continues. At the edge of the field deployed two 80mm mortars and an infantry gun. By the forces of one platoon, with the support of the battery and the infantry gun, the attack on the church and the grove continues. We bear losses. Motorcyclists do not manage to grab the road, they moved away.
In the afternoon our progress was stopped. We are experiencing great difficulties on the terrain, the enemy is constantly approaching reserves, although their losses are high. Trying to hold positions along the field.
Hard enemy resistance of a bold, armed with rifles and machine guns opponent, at skilful use of territory. The enemy has advantages! A small grove and a church in the hands of the enemy, the road is shot through by enemy snipers. It's almost impossible to get close, the storming of the church is now hardly possible. The enemy uses aviation (bonus events). We bear significant losses.
In the area of 16 hours one anti-tank gun of the enemy was destroyed with artillery fire (the first bonus event for a single shot). The second anti-tank gun of the enemy left the battlefield (second bonus event for lack of ammunition). By the end of the day, as a result of a tense battle, on the bell tower, an enemy sniper was killed. But the situation remains invariably critical. Significant losses and the fall of the "battle rating". The battle is lost. 46 people were killed and wounded, 6 people deserted (fled for morals).
