A light howitzer battery was surrounded by enemy infantry and half a dozen Russian tanks from the 29th Tank Brigade. The situation was a stalemate; the German force with its howitzers were powerful enough to keep the Russian tanks at bay, but lacked the offensive capability to break out. A company of German tanks, including some captured T-34s, supported by mechanized infantry, was ordered to break the siege.
