The evening of June 24, Infantry-Regiment 505 was established within 12 km of Liepaja in Latvia. The following day, jointly with Kriegsmarine commandos led by Lieutenant-Commander Schenke, the 505th attempted to take the maritime fortress by surprise but the attack had failed. On the 27th, the men of the 505th got a foothold in the southern part of the fortress. The following day, a bloody street battle was engaged against the particularly combative Russian defenders.
