Petsamo and Kirkenes 1944

During a recent visit to Bluewater, I saw PETSAMO AND KIRKENES 1944: THE SOVIET OFFENSIVE IN THE NORTHERN ARCTIC on sale in Waterstones. As this is an aspect of the Eastern Front/Great Patriotic War that I don't know much about, I bought a copy, and have thoroughly enjoyed reading it.


The book is divided into nine chapters, a bibliography, and an index:
  • Origins of the Campaign
  • Chronology
  • Opposing Commanders
    • Soviet
    • German
  • Opposing Forces
    • Soviet
    • German
    • Orders of battle
  • Opposing Plans
    • Soviet
    • German
  • The Campaign
    • The first phase, 7th to 13th October 1944
    • The second phase, 14th to 22nd October 1944
    • The third phase, 23rd October to 5th November 1944
  • Aftermath
    • Conclusion
  • The Battlefield Today
  • Bibliography
  • Index
