Description

This book presents in words and images the first operational use of German paratroopers in the Russian campaign, and also the first time they served as conventional infantry. Focusing specifically on the 1st Battalion of the 3rd Fallschirmjager Regiment, it describes the horrific weather, and unspeakable living and fighting conditions endured by these elite soldiers who were deployed in the trenches near the Neva River in northern Russia. Outnumbered in men and equipment, they fought bravely and with distinction, never faltering in their mission. Included with the operational history, are recollections and reminiscences of surviving veterans.
