Oryon ORY3019 WWII Historic Battles 4-Figure Set: "Rostov", Russia, January 1943 (1:35 Scale) "In war there is no second prize for the runner-up."
- General Omar Bradley

The Battle of Rostov was a battle of the Eastern Front of World War II, fought around Rostov-on-Don between the German Army Group South, commanded by General Gerd von Rundstedt and the Soviet South Front commanded by General Yakov Timofeyevich Cherevichenko.

On November 21st, 1941, the Germans took Rostov. However, the German lines were over-extended, and Kleist's warnings that his left flank was vulnerable and that his tanks were ineffective in the freezing weather were ignored. On November 27th, the Soviet 37th Army, commanded by Lieutenant-General Anton Ivanovich Lopatin, counterattacked the 1st Panzer Army's spearhead from the north, forcing them to pull out of the city. Adolf Hitler countermanded the retreat. When von Rundstedt refused to obey, Hitler sacked him. However, retreat was unavoidable, and the 1st Panzer Army was forced back to the Mius River at Taganrog. It was the first significant German withdrawal of the war.

This 4-piece figure set consists of two German grenadiers from the 5.Panzer Division and two Russian soldiers from the 5th Assault Division. Sold Out!
