After the German victory in the Second Battle of Kharkov in May 1942, the plan for the summer campaign was to execute Operation Blue, a drive southeast from the Don to the Volga and into the Caucasus. Threatening the flanks of this drive was the concentration of Soviet troops at Voronezh. The German operation, codenamed Operation Fridericus II (after King Frederick II of Prussia), began on June 22, 1942 — the anniversary of Operation Barbarossa. The 4th Panzer Army drove east from Belogorod and Kursk, achieving an encirclement on July 2, but the number of prisoners was disappointing when compared to the battles of 1941 — the Red Army had learned not to reinforce failure.

Hoth, under strict instructions not to get bogged down in street-to-street fighting, captured Voronezh easily on 6 July, only to be subjected to a Soviet counter-attack.
