Division Luftwaffe Novogorod 1944 Caracteristicas Dragon nos presenta estas figuras a escala 1/35 para montar y pintar. Breve Historia Novgorod, located south of Leningrad, is a prominent historical city in northwestern Russia. Interestingly, its name means new city. And after the brutal fighting of WWII, a new city had to be virtually rebuilt on the site. Originally occupied by Germany on 15 August 1941, it was recaptured on 19 January 1944 by a massive Soviet offensive. Fighting was vicious, and of 2,536 stone buildings in the city, less than 40 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.
