A brief annotation
The Leningrad Blockade during the Great Patriotic War lasted from 8 September 1941 to 27 January 1944. Destroying the city was an important goal of the enemy; however, Nazi forces failed to breach the defences. As a result, Leningrad suffered a nearly 900-day siege with daily aerial and artillery bombardments. In January 1944, during the Leningrad-Novgorod operation, the Nazi armies surrounding the city were defeated and repelled. 27 January 1944 was the day when the siege of Leningrad was completely lifted.
