Operation Burma-Strässe

Burma road

The 'Burma-Strässe' was German position for Generaloberst Georg Lindemann’s 18th Army of Generalfeldmarschall Georg von Küchler’s Heeresgruppe 'Nord' along the long, narrow Sinyavino heights on the Eastern Front to the south of Lake Ladoga (July 1943).

This position was therefore just to the south of the neck of land which had separated the besieged population and garrison of Leningrad from the rest of the USSR until January 1943, when the Soviets retook it in 'Iskra'.
