By mid-August 1944, the Warsaw Uprising was in full swing with the Germans and Polish Home Army (the AK) fighting for control of key sections of the Polish capitol. The Wola and Ochota districts had been taken by the Germans and even the surrounded German garrison at Bruhl Palace had recently been rescued. The overall German commander, SS Gruppenfuehrer Heinrich Reinefarth now focused the German counterattacks on the City Center and Southern Suburbs. To support these actions, Reinefarth deployed the nebelwerfers of the Schwere Stellungs Werfer Batterie 201 to the Saxon Gardens. From there, the nebelwerfers would pummel AK units in Napoleon Square. In response, the AK put together a force to move north from the main train station and retake the Saxon Gardens and eliminate the nebelwerfers. But unknown to the Poles, Reinefarth had also sent one of his precious Sturm Tigers to the gardens.
