Order of the Day, addressed to Marshal Rokossovsky, announces that troops of the First Byelorussian Front, as a result of a vigorous attack by tank formations and infantry, have carried by storm the town and fortress of Dem-blin (Ivangorod) - a large railway junction and powerful strongpoint of German defences on the River Vistula.

The Order mentions 42 commanders of troops, tankmen, artillerymen, airmen, sappers and signallers whose units and formations have distinguished themselves.

A salute of 20 salvoes was fired from 224 Moscow guns.
