NotesNews: June 30: Russia: On the Kursk front violent enemy attacks, after driving an intial wedge into the Soviet positions, were halted by the Red Army, with enemy losses described by the Soviet High Command as "colossal" and 150 tanks put out of action. At Sevastapol the garrison continued to inflict heavy losses against overwhelming odds; Berlin, claiming a further penetration, reported that Russian troops were still resisting deep underground in Fort Maxim Gorki, whose upper part had been captured, and that the Sevastopol forts captured - Forts Lenin, Stalin and Molotov - were far stronger than the Verdun forts in the last war, being exceptionaly well protected by 13 in. guns, thick armour-plate, and a special type of concrete. ...[Keesing's Contemporary Archives p.5251]
