£25.00 £6.99

In the early summer of 1941 a select unit of German mountain soldiers under the command of General Eduard Dietl set out in the far north of Scandinavia to attack Russia. Operation Silver Fox was a key part of the invasion of Russia. A diehard Nazi and one of Hitler’s closest comrades, Dietl, and his similarly fanatical officer’s had every expectation of winning glory and fame by conquering the strategically important city of Murmansk.The German–Finnish forces took some ground but Murmansk was neither cut off nor captured and operated as important destination for Allied convoys throughout the war.
