/* Battle of Kharkov */
The army group sent south engaged the ill-prepared, ill-equipped Red Army forces at [[Kharkov]]. 600,000 Red Army troops were quickly encircled and taken prisoner without much of a fight. Hitler declared it, "the greatest military victory of all time."
Most of the Russian POWs became slave labor in German POWs camps; some Ukrainian POWs were recruited into German fighting units in both [[eastern Europe ]], where they committed atrocities against the civilian population, and the Western Front to guard the Atlantic Wall in advance of, and during, the [[Normandy Invasion]].
