4th Shock Army, 334 Rifle Division
has somebody information were the 4th Shock Army, 334 Rifle Division was in July 1942.
The 4th Shock Army belonged to the Kalinin Front. In "The Red Army Order of Battle" from Robert Poirier and Albert Conner I found that,
the 334 Rifle Division was in
Januar 1942: Orel, Kursk Region mit 4th Shock Army
but that is to south for the Kalinin Front. Was the 4th Shock Army rapid displaced for a short time to another Front? I am looking to find the town "Gushchino" were the 334 Rifle Division was in July 1942. There is one town "гущино" 50 km south/east of Kursk.
