Product Description
From Leningrad to Narva. An illustrated study of the battles in the northern Baltic area, January-September 1944. In stock and shipping In January 1944, the Red Army finally succeeded in putting to an end one of the most dramatic sieges in the history of warfare; that of Leningrad. Soviet spearheads quickly dislodged the Wehrmacht from the city, but once they reached the prewar border with Estonia, they were stopped dead in their tracks by a very determined Axis resistance. There, at the river Narva, Germans, Estonians, and Waffen-SS volunteers and conscripts from all over Europe stood firm for several months against numerous Soviet attacks. By doing so, they were able to cripple the ambitious military and political plans of Joseph Stalin and to effectively postpone the Soviet liberation of the Baltic States for six months. Written by a leading Bulgarian researcher, the book provides an expert analysis of this little-known battle. A considerable number of German and Soviet wartime documents were obtained which enabled the author to tell the story from both sides. The book contains many unpublished photographs.
