SLOWING THE RED TIDE

by Nicholas Trudgian

In January 1945 the Soviet advance to Berlin first reached German soil in East Prussia. Many thousands of desperate German civilians braved bitter weather in an attempt to flee. The Red Army seemed unstoppable and yet, against all the odds, a few tired and battered German forces decided to counter-attack.

Hoping to rescue the civilians trapped in and around Königsberg, the Tigers and King Tigers of Heavy Tank battalion 505 punched through Soviet positions and help hold a corridor open long enough for thousands of families to escape to the west and for supplies to be moved into the besieged city.

Air support, including the Fw190's of Stab JG51 portrayed in this picture, helped to subdue the six Russian divisions present in what became one of the last significant German tactical victories on the Eastern Front. Russian aircraft included the Yak 3's of the famed 'Normandie-Neimen group, flown by French pilots, and are here seen making a brave, head on attack.

Nicholas Trudgians awesome depiction of this desperate episode on the Eastern Front has once again shown this artists strengths in his chosen field, capturing the the bitter weather and dramatic colours and action in exceptional detail.
