The Leibstandarte’s first attack went well and their armour soon encircled enemy units that were destroyed by supporting grenadiers. Panzergrenadier-Regiment captured two hills west of Belgorod and took five fortified positions with explosive charges. The soldiers of the Totenkopf Division also wasted no time and advanced into a series of strong Soviet defence lines. At the same time the Das Reich Division made considerable progress and pushed into the enemy lines in front of them. By the evening of the first day of the attack, Totenkopf, Leibstandarte and Das Reich had done well and in some places penetrated around 13 miles into the Russian defences.
