High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The Vistula-Oder
Offensive was a successful Red Army operation on the Eastern Front
in the European Theatre of World War II; it took place between 12
January, 1945 and 2 February, 1945. The offensive took Soviet
forces from their start lines on the Vistula river in Poland to the
Oder river deep in Germany, about seventy kilometers from the
capital Berlin. Two Fronts of the Red Army were directly involved.
The 1st Belorussian Front, holding the sector around Warsaw and
southward in the Magnuszew and Puawy bridgeheads, was led by
Marshal Georgy Zhukov; the 1st Ukrainian Front, occupying the
Sandomierz bridgehead, was led by Marshal Ivan Konev. Soviet forces
in this sector were opposed by Army Group A, defending a front
which stretched from positions east of Warsaw southwards along the
Vistula, almost to the confluence of the San. At that point there
was a large Soviet bridgehead over the Vistula in the area of
Baranow before the front continued south to Jaso.
