He led a dozen of his panzers against the enemy force, and destroyed three T-70 light tanks that were leading the attack. Close behind the tanks came trucks towing antitank guns. Five were destroyed from close range as they tried to move into position to fire on the panzers. Bäke's tanks then shot up troop-carrying trucks as they rolled across the ice. Fires blazed and there were loud explosions as the trucks' fuel tanks went up. The enemy was thrown back across the river and made no further attempts to cross here.
A short time later the Soviets entered Cherkassy. Dr. Bäke sent four Panzer IVs there. He was to retake Cherkassy. "I was not given an opportunity to carry out the attack, which would have surely succeeded, because in Snamenka, the starting point for the attack, I received an order from 6th Panzer Division to return to the Glinki area. In my opinion this was a mistake which was to cost many thousands of German soldiers in Cherkassy their lives. But the order was unequivocal. As a result, in the following weeks the enemy was able to complete the encirclement of Cherkassy.
The German operation between the Don and Dniepr Rivers was a success, and the danger facing Army Group Don (now renamed Army Group South) of being cut off was averted. When the 6th Panzer Division linked up with the southern part of Army Group Lanz, the Soviet Army Group Popov was completely cut off. The group of armored forces under von Oppeln-Bronikowski, of which 11th Panzer Regiment was the core, reached the western part of Bereka on 1 March, completing the encirclement of Popov's army group.
