As part of the German offensive into the Caucasus, the 4th Mountain Division received the key assignment of taking and holding the port of Tuapse on the Black Sea coast. The Soviet 18th Army stood in the mountain passes above the port, refusing to yield and counter-attacking vigorously. With only part of its force - one regiment had been attached to the 1st Mountain Division - the "Enzian Division" had a difficult task ahead.


The 9th Guards Rifle reported 8,000 German dead, more than were engaged in the battle. But inflated claims aside, the battles in front of Tuapse represented a German high-water mark. The drive to the east would advance no farther on this front.
