In the summer of 1942, German forces resumed their attack on the Eastern Front concentrating on the southern sector, the objective of being the conquest of Stalingrad and the Caucasus. This new campaign lacked the sweeping manoeuvres which annihilated the Soviet forces during the 1941 summer campaign. This time, the Soviet commanders and soldiers learned to withdraw and regroup their forces in order to launch ferocious counterattacks, adding skill to their courage. The Wiking Division was involved in a terrible winter retreat, characterized by bitter fighting and glacial weather conditions. The chronology of events is told here through direct testimony of the participants, period war reports and original documents, accompanied by an exceptional host of images, maps and documents taken from military archives and from highly respected private archives, all designed to make treatment of the subject more compelling.
