However, apart from the fresh and battle-proven units of the First Cavalry Army, the Russian commander of the Southwestern Front, Komandarm Alexander Ilyich Yegorov, had only the 12th Red Army, reinforced with fresh, untrained recruits, which had been badly beaten during the Soviet retreat from Ukraine only a month earlier. Due to this, the planned offensive could not begin on all fronts at once, and the mobility of the troops was limited. On May 29, 1920, the commander of the Polish 3rd Army ordered a counterattack. Lt. Col. Stefan Dąb-Biernacki's newly formed Wasilków Group was to attack the Yakir Group before it could attack the weakened 7th Division. The assault was successful, and the group — comprising a single (5th Legions) infantry regiment, reinforced with one battalion of the elite 1st Legions Infantry Regiment, two artillery groups, and two cavalry squadrons — was able to take the Soviets by surprise. After the first assault, the Bolshevik 44th Rifle Division had lost one of its brigades and its entire staff, which delayed the Soviet assault on the Polish northern flank, thus securing it. However, at the same time the southern flank, between the Polish 3rd and 6th Armies, was threatened by the First Cavalry Army, which had crossed the Dnieper River and was concentrating near Uman. From there, it easily broke the thin line of Polish defenses and began a fast advance toward the strategically important railway node of Koziatyn. date 15 July–8 August 1941 place Uman, Western Ukraine casus The '''Battle of Uman''' (15 July–8 August 1941) was the German and allied encirclement of the 6th (6th Army (Soviet Union)) (General Lieutenant I.N.

Ponedelin) Soviet armies south of the city of Uman during the initial offensive operations of Army Group South, commanded by ''Generalfeldmarshall'' (Field Marshal (Germany)) Gerd von Rundstedt, as part of Operation Barbarossa on the Eastern Front (Eastern Front (WWII)) during World War II. Léderrey, p.32 In January 1941 the division was moved to Rumania and in April took part in the invasion of Yugoslavia and Greece. This division participated in Operation Barbarossa, advancing through Uman and across the Dnieper River as part of the 1st Panzergruppe (commanded by General Von Kleist (Paul Ludwig Ewald von Kleist)). It took part in the attack and occupation of Rostov until it was pulled back along with other German troops to the Mius River. In a series of defensive battles during the winter of 1941–42 it managed to hold its position and then in March 1942 took part in the battles of Kharkov. Later in 1942 the division took part in the drive on Stalingrad. During the latter part of 1942 it was involved in the bitter battles for this city, and then in early 1943 was encircled at Stalingrad (Battle of Stalingrad), and destroyed. Operation Barbarossa Once Operation Barbarossa was launched, the 9th Panzer Division, part of XIV Panzer Corps (Germany) of the Army Group South, pushed through Ukraine on June 28, heading to Kiev. The division broke through the Stalin Line on July 7, took part in the encirclement of Uman, and captured Krivoy Rog and Nikopol (Nikopol, Ukraine) on August 17. The 9th Panzer Division then captured the Dnieper River Dam at Dnepropetrosk on August 25. From there, it was made the spearhead of Panzer Group Kleist, driving to Kiev from the south while Panzer Group Guderian drove behind the city from the north. The two groups linked up on September 15, encircling five field armies of the Soviet Army. The division was part of the force that captured 667,000 Soviet prisoners and 900 tanks in the city. birth_date 1646 birth_place Uman, Kiev Voivodeship, Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth death_date

Soon after the album release, the band went through more lineup changes. Mihajlović ran afoul of the law and went to jail and after serving the punishment he was informed by the rest of the band that he was no longer a Katarina II member.
