After November 7, when the German selected Jaeger units "Edelweiss" from the group of General Lanz reached the crest of the heights of Semashko, vys. 795.8, Mount Indyuk and to Tuapse they were less than 20 kilometers away, our battles with the Nazis became especially fierce. By December 17, as a result of the decisive actions of the 353rd, 383rd, 83rd and 165th rifle brigades, the Semashkhov group of the fascists was eliminated, and its remnants were thrown back across the Pshish River, thereby eliminating the threat of a breakthrough of German fascist troops to Tuapse.|
