ARMY GROUP NORTH: The great Soviet winter offensive shattered many German units, leaving isolated groups of demoralized Germans wandering aimlessly through the forests. In January, 1942, the 464th Infantry Regiment of 253rd Infantry Division simply left one of its companies behind when it fled before the Soviet advance. By the time the company commander realized this, the small unit had lost all contact with its regiment. The company set out to reach the German lines. But among the thick forests of central Russia armed partisan groups of local inhabitants, party activists and Red Army soldiers separated from their units gathered together to hunt down and exterminate German stragglers.


Company G slowly fought its way back to the German lines. Partisans took their vengeance on the invaders, tracking down any who strayed from their unit. Three days later a much-reduced company staggered into the German lines.
