Hello,

Does anybody have maps of where this pocket was exactly established across the Neva by the Russian army?

East of Nevskaya Dubrovka.
Just a basic map showing elimination of the bridgehead by German 1.ID

Thank you, Greg. It seems this battle is very much forgotten in English-speaking and even German books?

Mentioned in Werner Richter's book - Die 1. (ostpreussische) Infanterie-Division.
In German sources known as Newa Brückenkopf bei (Newskaja) Dubrowka.
