This is my first post on this site after many years of casually reading the excellent information contained here, so I hope someone might assist.
I've been scouring the internet for detailed info on the fighting in the region of Sestroretsk (or Siestarjoki for the Finns I believe) in 1941, in particular to determine if the fighting actually reached the city streets.
Some accounts state quite firmly that the Finns stopped their advance short of Sestroretsk, while others suggest that they may have continued further.
eg. this unedited quote from http://sestroretsk.org/today/developing-traditions
"The book «Unsubdued boundary» in detail tells about people's feat who have endured 900 days of blockade of Leningrad on the boundary between Sestroretsk and Beloostrov. Then, in autumn of 1941, the fighters of the 120 th destructive battalion consisting of workers of Voskov tool factory, serving enterprises and yesterday's schoolboys, and also frontier guards and marines of the Baltic fleet from Kronstadt, took up the blow of the Finnish army advanced parts and stopped the enemy on northern approaches to Leningrad."
I'm familiar with the actions at Beloostrov, but I'm wondering if anyone here has reliable sources which can confirm or deny whether Finnish troops actually entered the city streets of Sestroretsk, even if just briefly? The lack of internet accounts suggest to me that the answer is probably no, but I'm more than happy to be proven wrong on this.
