Painting & Assembly Required. Ages 12 & Up.
Novgorod is a prominent historical city in northwestern Russia. Interestingly, its name means 'new city'; after the brutal fighting of WWII, it had to be virtually rebuilt on the site. Originally occupied by Germany in August 1941, it was recaptured in 1944 by a massive Soviet offensive. Fighting was vicious, and of 2536 stone buildings in the city, less than forty remained standing after Novgorod's liberation. Out of this bitter battle stagger four survivors of the 1st Luftwaffe Field Division who are in full retreat. These weary, ragged figures are clad in quilted Luftwaffe parkas and trousers, some with typical rectangular patterns, and some with small diamond patterns. A member of the quartet supports his wounded comrade as he hobbles as fast as he can to escape the Soviet maelstrom.
