Under Siege! Whether it is a city, a town, a battalion or a regiment, the blood is stirred by stories of those that, usually vastly outnumbered, have stood behind walls, and barricades in a last stand against their attackers. So what makes those under siege battle on when to do so often had little logic? Who were the leaders who rallied their troops or their fellow citizens? What drives man and women to acts of extraordinary courage and self-sacrifice? Why had victory sometimes been won when bloody failure looks absolutely certain?
This episode focuses on the siege of Leningrad. The siege of Leningrad was a prolonged military blockade undertaken from the south by the Army Group North of Nazi Germany against the Soviet city of Leningrad on the Eastern Front in World War II
