RussianGerman (SS)
The last obstacle on the drive on Leningrad was the 'Stalin Line'. The elite Totenkopf Division was tasked with maneuvering south of the enemy defensive line to cut off any Soviet formations driven back by the 56th Panzer Corps. In the face of staunch enemy resistance, firmer than anticipated by German commanders, the Totenkopf attack stalled in front of dense fortifications. Desperate to halt the German offensive, the Soviets threw in heavy armor, including 52-ton 152mm gun-armed KV-II tanks, as well as all available infantry reserves.
