Still, the Soviets put together a strong counter-attack early in the campaign, but their advantages in numbers of tanks committed could not overcome the German's superiority of skill at employing their veteran panzer units. The Axis forces advanced relentlessly eastward to the Dnieper River, but as the front kept expanding, the Axis' forces were spread thinner and thinner to cover their front line.
