Caucasian Front (Soviet Union)

The Caucasian Front or Caucasus Front was a military subdivision (Front) of the Red Army during the Second World War. This sense of the term is not identical with the more general usage of military front which indicates a geographic area in wartime, although a Soviet Front may operate within designated boundaries.

The Caucasus Front was created on December 30, 1941 as the new designation of the existing Transcaucasus Front. General Lieutenant Dmitri Kozlov was placed in command. It comprised the 44th, 47th, and 51st Armies. On January 28, 1942, the forces transferred to the (new) Crimean Front and the (reestablished) Transcaucasus Military District.
