DoubleDeuce -> RE: [A.A.R.] CC-01 Pavlov's House (9/5/2012 3:10:37 AM)
THE SITUATION: At the end of September, units of Rodimsev’s 13th Guards were ordered to seize buildings on Lenin Square and form strongpoints. A damaged apartment building was attacked and occupied by Sgt. Jacob Pavlov and his men, who formed a defensive position with some meager reinforcements. Since it sat astride the German line of advance to the Volga only 250 meters away, his strongpoint came under frequent attack. On October 20, as part of the general German effort to complete their seizure of the city, one of the strongest attacks to date was launched against Pavlov’s house.
