04 Soviet Storm - The Siege of Leningrad (1941)
Episode 3 of a documentary series about the German invasion of the Soviet Union made for Russian television.
This episode covers the activities of Army Group North. As Army Group South began their Siege of Sevastopol and Army Group Center captured Kiev and began their march on Moscow, Army Group North began the siege of Leningrad. The siege started in Sept 1941 and lasted until late January 1944.
Stalin's decision to not evacuate the city enormously increased civilian casualties on the Soviet side.
