The Battle of Krasny Bor in 1943 was part of the Soviet Red Army's efforts to lift the blockade of Leningrad, one of the longest and most destructive in history.

Previous works on the Battle of Krasny Bor have focused primarily on the infantry involved, especially when using veteran testimonies, and the use of artillery has been conspicuously absent.

This book aims to put the reader right in the heart of the battle, describing the action from an artilleryman's point of view, seeing it fundamentally as a duel between the Soviet and German-Spanish soldiers.

Of the many books published on the sieges of Leningrad and Stalingrad very little coverage has been provided of the artillery, historians concentrating on the infantry and snipers. The author has not only corrected this commission, but covered the Spanish artillery deployed to the siege. – Very Highly Recommended

Firetrench

This book is written from the aspect of the Spanish Artillery at this Battle and it is a superb text doing exactly what is described on the front cover.

Dr Stuart C Blank

One cannot fail to appreciate the effort of Carlos Caballero Jurado to bring to light the role of the Spanish gunners and their courage, often combined with the sacrifice of life to support the infantry and save and defend their guns.

On The Old Barbed Wire

The author does an excellent job in dispelling such historical half-truths and does so by widening the frame of reference to include the Division’s artillery arm.
