Leningrad 1941-1944

2009 | 96 Pages | ISBN: 1846034418 | PDF | 40 MB

Hitler's protracted siege of Leningrad resulted in one of the most
brutal campaigns on the Eastern Front during World War II. The German
Army Group North was able to isolate the city and its garrison for a
period of 900 days, during which an estimated 1.5 million Soviets died
from combat, disease and starvation. For over two years, German forces
pounded the city with artillery and air assaults while the Soviets
made repeated efforts on the frozen swamplands of the Volkhov Front to
break through. Finally, in January 1944, the Soviets were able to
break Army Group North's front and relieve Leningrad. While most
histories of the siege of Leningrad focus on the plight of the
starving civil population, this refreshing title instead examines the
strength of the garrison's defenses - which ultimately prevented the
Germans from capturing the city - and the growing sophistication of
Soviet offensive tactics. Dr Forczyk also provides an assessment of
how weather and terrain factors shaped the campaign in this superb
addition to the history of the Eastern Front.
