Germany mounted a massive invasion of the Soviet Union on 22 June 1941, and the powerful force’s momentum took troops to the very gates of Moscow. However, amidst stiffening Soviet resistance, freezing weather and badly overstretched supply lines, the attack slowed and stalled. Stalin had been transferring fresh troops from Siberia and the Far East since autumn, and in early December 1941 they helped launch a counteroffensive near Moscow. These troops were better equipped for cold-weather operations than the Germans, and as they advanced, Soviet forces drove a gap between Army Group North and Army Group Center. It’s from this desperate period of winter fighting that this figure set emanates.

THE KIT:

  • Over 70 parts
  • Four figures included
  • They wear uniform gear such as greatcoats, sheepskin jackets, toques, mittens/gloves and fur boots.
  • The action poses are very suitable for depicting a combat scene in the snow and ice, and the sculpting of the plastic is sharp and realistic.
  • The soldiers also wield weapons suitable for this time period of 1941, including Mosin-Nagant rifles and a DP28 light machine gun.
