Book 3 in the exciting and popular 'Devils with Wings' WWII series. After a successful mission in Greece and taking part in the first airborne invasion in military history, Fallschirmjager paratrooper Paul Brand and sergeant Max Grun continue their wartime adventures. High Command has assigned a new task to the specialist battalion. Paul and his outfit are not only pitted against heavy artillery and Soviet armoured trains, but also thrown into the merciless siege surrounding Leningrad against a desperate enemy. The Soviet Army is frantic to break out of the ring of steel that surrounds them and have successfully secured two bridgeheads across the River Neva. Paul and his battalion are the only strategic reserve and the last resort to hold back the Russian hordes. As the hostile Russian winter sets in and the Soviets' desperation mounts, the casualties begin to stack up. Will Paul and his men hold out? Or will this be one mission where the enormity of the enemy forces, the size of the task set before them and the bitterness of winter prove to be too much?
