Volkhov - date needed

Post by Andreas » 26 May 2007 13:08

Based on what can be made out on this map regarding the frontline, would it be possible to roughly date the map? Centre-right is Novo-Kirishi and below Kirishi.

The map is from my grandfather's collection. He was there with Beobachtungsabteilung 26.

Thanks a lot!

All the best

Hi Kamen

Thanks a lot for this - great links. I absolutely have to learn Russian! The Kirishi bridgehead battles are well known in German historiography, and the partially destroyed Volkhov bridge is a symbol of the bitter fighting that occurred there. I was hoping that somebody who is an expert on the frontline in the sector might have been able to tell me which period this map represents.

All the best

Send it to my by E-Mail in better quality and I will try to compare it with Allmeyer-Beck's history of 21.ID :wink:
