The Battle of the Kamenets-Podolsky pocket (or Battle of Tarnopol) was a Soviet effort to surround and destroy the Wehrmacht's 1st Panzer Army of Army Group South.
The envelopment occurred in March 1944 on the Eastern Front during the Second World War. The Red Army successfully created a pocket, trapping some 220,000 German soldiers inside. Under the command of General Hans-Valentin Hube and with the direction of Field Marshal Erich von Manstein, German forces in the pocket were able to fight their way out by mid-April. This breakout is sometimes referred to as Hube's Pocket.
