After Hitler launched his summer offensive on June 28th 1942, German army group South was split into two parts, in which Army Group A was tasked with capturing the Soviet Oil fields in the Caucasus region. While Army Group B was to head towards the Volga river and Stalingrad, and cover Army Group A's advance into the Caucasus.
Soon after Army Group A had advanced into the Caucasus, the Germans sent a detachment to Mount Elbrus. On the 18th of August the detachment reached the refuge of 11 tourist camp, from this point the Germans set off for the summit.
On the 21st of August, soldiers of the German 1st Mountain Division raised the Swastika flag over Mount Elbrus, the highest Mountain in Europe. It was a propaganda triumph, but Hitler regarded it as a mere stunt. And was infuriated.
(Some of what I've said is a copy of words from the video https://youtu.be/wf3A2BWgyjA
13:52-14:22 is where you can see a more vivid description of what I'm saying. I also say, that video and the series are very interesting and is of high quality.
Here is the main video I want to show youhttps://youtu.be/5vauer2_tzU
Look at 3:00 to 4:40 or 4:20-4:40
The music in the video in my view is fitting.
I also find it incredible that such a great act was filmed, sadly not in color.
What are your thoughts on this feat?
