Blocade of Leningrad. Counteroffensive at Tikhvin, 10
November - 30 December 1941.
Il'ya Moschanskiy, Dmitry Sakhonchik C. 2004 Moscow. In
Russian with English captions. Soft cover, 68 pp, 140 b/w
photos, plus many excellent tactical maps and color
illustrations. Most of the photos have never been published
before. About 8"x11".
The book provides an extremely detailed account of what was
perhaps the most critical battle of the nearly 3-year long
siege. The town of Tikhvin was a vital railway junction. Its
recapture by the Red Army opened the railway link to the Lake
Ladoga and made it possible to supply Leningrad during the
horrific winter of 1941 / 42. Includes excellent information
on Soviet armor strength.
