Leningrad Campaign

Post by Rob S. » 20 Oct 2002 15:26

I need information on the period before and up to the very gates of Leningrad.

* I need information of the dispositions of the Divisions involved. (German, Finnish, and Russian); their deployments and their goals.

* Weather before and during the Leningrad Siege

* Terrain and road conditions on the way and at Leningrad

* Locations of Sea Ports, Railways, Major forests and Hills

* Minor Cities

Danke im Voraus.

Hello!
My Grandfather was in Leningrad, you can read his memoirs at: http://www.feldgrau.com/interview3.html

It will not answer your questions, but should give an impression.

That made for a very good story Bjorn, I apreciated your detail to it very much. Sounds much like like my fathers uncles experiences in Stalingrad as they both escaped those type of terrors time after time to return home in one piece after both being through Nth Africa and the Mediteranien.

Hello!
I am glad you found the story interesting! It must be said, I have left many things out in this online version, such as unit names etc.

My grandfathers brother was killed in Stalingrad.

No problem, it's not often that you get to hear a story such as that as you can tell the fear of him at times.
Sorry to hear about you grand uncle also.
