  Second Battle of Kharkov - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In fact, prior to Operation Uranus, during the Battle of Stalingrad, the Red Army didn't have the necessary amounts of anti-tank ordnance and rocket artillery, while the crews of their own tanks, and even their artillery were just as poorly trained as their compatriots in the infantry.
On 17 May the initiative of the battle was successfully transferred to the Germans as Kleist's 1st Panzer Army began a double headed counter-attack on the Barvenkovo bridgehead.
Within the context of the Second Battle of Kharkov itself, the faults of the Red Army to properly regroup during the prelude to the battle and the ability of the Germans to effectively collect intelligence on Soviet movements would play an important role in the battle.
