At The Gates of Lenigrad
The photographs in this book were taken by Feldwebel Georg Gundlach on behalf of the 291 Command. Infanterie-Division, to document the war operations in Russia, illustrate the fighting of the German Division, and in particular the infantry of Infanterie-Regiment 506, during operation Barbarossa through the Baltic States during the winter 1941-1942 and in the swamp and forests of Volchov, in the Leningrad sector.
The photos, often taken in action, depict both the men and the means of the German units employed in these operations, and the extremely harsh living conditions of the civilian population and the Russian soldiers of General Vlassov's 2nd Assault Army inside the Volchov sack, among the unhealthy swamps and inhospitable forests, the scene of bitter fighting.
