Russian 8th Army in the Oranienbaum B/H 1941

Post by Andy H » 03 May 2003 16:32

When the Russian 8th Army was cut off by the Germans in mid September 1941 it consisted of the following:

16th Rifle Corps
10th Rifle Division
11th Rifle Division
85th Rifle Division
plus
48th Rifle Division
80th Rifle Division
191st Rifle Division
281st Rifle Division
2nd Naval Infantry Brigade
76th Seperate Latvian Rifle Regiment
2nd Seperate Tank Regiment
plus
an Armoured Car Btn and supporting Artillery and Engineers.

Can anyone give me the Commanders of these units plus also the OoB for the Latvian and Tank Regiments present.

Thank you for you time and effort on this.

I tried the link but it's in Russian, but my Russian is like Life on Pluto-Nonexistent.

Have you tried the book about the Battle of Leningrad, written by Glantz?

Hi Tomster

I have two books by Glantz on Leningrad and the one I have in my possesion at present doesn't give any details of commanders. The other book I have lent to a friend, whose on holiday at present, so I'll have to wait until he returns next month.
