In January 1942, south of Lake Ilmen (Russia), the 16th German Army clashed with Morozov’s 11th Soviet Army for possession of the strategic Russian city of Stelaia.

In this battle, which has gone almost unnoticed in studies of the Eastern Front, the Blue Division (Spanish volunteers) fought alongside the 250th Skier Company. The Spaniards, along with their German and Latvian comrades, endured hard fighting in extreme winter conditions.

In addition to providing a strategic framework of the battle itself, including the Soviet perspective, this book also looks at the human aspect of the battle by analysing a selection of the volunteers who fought in it.

It was also here that The Danish leader of the "Frikorps Danmark", Christian Frederik von Schalburg, of Russian decent, lost his life during a hopeless attack. As a Danish educated officer he was asked to become the leader of the Danish volunteers, fighting for Germany on the eastern front.
