Operation Orlog

(Norse cycle of fate)

This was the German redeployment of the Junkers Ju 52/3m transport aircraft of Generaloberst Wolfram Freiherr von Richthofenís Luftflotte IV for other tasks after their high-intensity commitment to the airlift operation which failed to prevent the surrender of Generalfeldmarschall Friedrich Paulusís 6th Army at Stalingrad (1/3 February 1943).
