Operation Driven Hunt
by Jason Mark
The Soviet foothold over the Neva River near Leningrad was so minuscule that Red Army troops called it the “Five-Kopeck Bridgehead” because on a map it could be covered by a five-cent piece. It was arguably the most blood-drenched tract of land on the Ostront. The men of 1.Inf.Div. moved against it in a well-prepared attack. The full story of Operation Drückjagd (Driven Hunt) is told for the first time.

    This is an OUTSTANDING periodical. It has all the factual, historical, and detailed writing we’ve come to expect since “Death of the Leaping Horseman” was published, but in small, bite-size, pieces.

    There are many pictures and maps, as well, that lend a great deal of support to the written articles.

    I’m very glad that I have subscribed and I am looking forward to the next issue.

    The Kampfzone series is a MUST have for anyone interested in German ground operations in WWII. What makes Kampfzone great is, not only does it appeal to serious readers but to laymen as well. The niche topics that are presented is what makes Kampfzone great. The material that’s covered may never get the same treatment that Jason and his team have given it.
