Publisher's summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Siege of Leningrad, then pay attention...

From the early fall of 1941 until the winter of 1944, the Soviet city of Leningrad (today’s St. Petersburg) was almost completely surrounded by the forces of Nazi Germany and Finland. Though the siege lasted just under 900 days, to the citizens of the Soviet Union (and Russia today), this event is referred to as the “900-Day Siege”.

In those 900 days, the losses sustained by the Soviet Union were greater than the losses of Great Britain (est. 450,000) and the United States (est. 415,000) combined for the entire duration of the war. The losses in Leningrad (both civilian and military) amounted to over one million deaths, according to American military historian David Glantz. Other estimates reach the same general conclusion.

These one million victims of the Nazi siege did not only fall to Nazi bullets, bombs, and shells. The men, women, and children of Leningrad died in a variety of other ways as well, most of them exceedingly unpleasant, such as disease, starvation, and suicide. And, despite the propaganda from both sides, Russians are just as susceptible to cold weather as anyone else, especially when fuel runs out and there is not enough adequate clothing to go around.

In The Siege of Leningrad: A Captivating Guide to the Siege of Leningrad and Its Impact on World War 2 and the Soviet Union, you will discover topics such as:

  • Before the siege
  • Horror approaches
  • Attack
  • Civilians and defense
  • The battlefield
  • Inside the city
  • Stalin returns to his old methods
  • And much, much more!
