German Infantry Regiment 546 had been attacking each day since 11 November to clear Russian resistance along the Volga River. They slowly gained ground until they reached the vicinity of the oil tanks. Mounting losses and Russian resistance slowed German daily gains to a few meters. On the morning of 16 November the Germans tried again to gain more ground before the Volga froze over.
Attacker: German (Infantry Regiment 546, Infantry Division 389)
