Veseloye near Liptsy, 25km NE of Kharkov: [Best played against Human opponent] While the Soviet summer offensive to recapture Kharkov continued, Timoshenko's northern jaw struck towards the city from Volchansk. Against the massed divisions of the Soviet 28th Army the German lines were again overwhelmed. General Paulus, commanding the German Sixth Army, employed all available units against the Russian torrent bursting through the lines. Kharkov had to be held and the 3rd and 23rd Panzer Divisions were rushed to intercept. Arriving just in time, a strike group from the 3rd Panzer, slammed into the flank of the Soviet spearhead as its leading elements struck remnants of the battle weary German 514th Regiment/294th Infantry Division near Veseloye. Thanks to the timely arrival of the panzer divisions the Russian thrust at Kharkov was stopped, literally at the last moment, 20 kilometers from the city.
