ARMY GROUP CENTER: The Soviet winter offensive reduced the 6th Panzer Division to fewer than 1,000 effectives, and the division held its front only by combing support units for replacements. Soviet troops had the Germans all but surrounded, with German supply lines so close to the front that Soviet riflemen often shot up German trucks. The Germans planned a limited attack of their own, which they labeled the "Snail Offensive," to push the Soviets back from their supply lines.


By mid-morning the Soviets had been cleared from the villages or isolated. The Soviets, also at the end of their endurance, did not contest the German advance very intensely. By afternoon the Germans had taken their objectives and secured their supply lines.
