Introduction

As part of the same operations, the Salzburgers of the 137th Regiment tried to push back the Soviets from a hilltop near the Litsa river mouth. A strong patrol led by the way, and a Soviet sniper killed its commander, Oberleutnant Mayer. The jägers lost all control, charging madly into the enemy positions and bayoneting anyone wearing a Soviet uniform. Meanwhile, a grenade-tossing commissar whipped his own men into a frenzy, and a swirling fight developed with no quarter asked or given.

Conclusion

After intense hand-to-hand combat, the Soviets gave way and retreated to the coastline, where patrol boats tried to pick them up. Veterans of the battle called it the most intense fight they had ever seen.

Additional Notes

If German mountain leaders are preferred to regular Heers leaders, they may be gotten from http://www.avalanchepress.com/EdelweissCtrs.php
