The Normandy Landings is likely one of the most hyped battles of World War Two but the least praiseworthy. How does the scale of time and loss of life compare with the Battle for Courland? These last great battles of World War Two continued even after the armies of the Reich capitulated on May 8, 1945.

By October 1944, the Red Army, equipped by the United States and Britain, trapped 200,000 Reich troops in what became known as the Courland Bridgehead. This seven-month titanic struggle began on October 15, 1944. This period lasted longer than did the Reich’s pre-emptive strike on Bolshevik Russia in June 1941. This had brought the Wehrmacht and Waffen SS to the gates of Moscow in just four months.

The Courland Peninsula, upon which these battles were fought, is largely that of today’s Latvia. Dubbed the Canada of Europe, Courland is heavily forested. This epic struggle to assault the Reich from the East militarily should have been a walk in the park. The vastly superior manpower of Stalin’s Red Army was backed by the awesome and inexhaustible power of America and the British Empire’s industrial might.

The Soviet land, air and sea forces provided by Britain and the United States were to wage six titanic battles before the Reich’s 200,000 defenders were finally overwhelmed. In each confrontation, the British and U.S. sponsored Red Army was mauled.

In just one of the one-sided battles the Red Army lost 70,000 dead and wounded. The Soviets also lost 608 tanks and 178 aircraft most of which were British or American made. This David and Goliath clash gained the Soviets just a few isolated farmhouses.

Soviet Army

In the last battle, the sixth of the battles, the Red Army suffered 74,000 casualties and the loss of 263 tanks. The Red Army’s final death toll over the last two battles numbered 161,000 men. Of the Reich 200,000 defenders, 180,000 were subsequently taken into captivity. These figures speak for themselves.

In total, the Soviet forces lost 320,000 troops in this small rural community of farms and forests. The Red Army also lost their U.S. supplied mechanised equipment. A wrecked U.S. manufactured Studebaker truck can be seen in the video. Stalin’s Organs, truck-mounted artillery, notorious for the terrifying carnage they inflicted, were mounted on the U.S. supplied Studebaker trucks.

Total Soviet losses consisted of 2,388 tanks, 659 aircraft, 900 artillery pieces and 1,440 machine-guns. By comparison, the heroism of the much smaller Reich armies makes insignificant the Battle of Thermopylae (Greece 480 BC).

  • Amazing, thanks Mike.

  • All over eastern Europe and Germany the Reich forces fought with despairing courage, uncelebrated and unremembered. Their heroism was for Europe against the same creatures who now hope to hammer the final nails in the coffin of our civilisation. I read that the vast majority of the troops who surrendered in Courland never saw home again. Another heroic defence was in Breslau, which surrendered only two days before the Reich itself after a two and a half month siege. Nothing that any British or American forces faced in WW2 ever compared with what the German Army endured.

    • A small but important point is that it was the German armed forces that capitulated (May 8 1945)~ not the constitutional German government. This underscores the point that all German governments since are illegal entities and the constitution an illegal document.

  • Sturmgewehr stg 44

    No wonder the battle of Courland has been airbrushed out of history as it clearly shows the fighting ethos of the German army. This is a military that took on three empires ,the United States, the Soviet Union, and Great Britain. That’s a very impressive effort and something for all Germans to be proud of.

    By the time D day came around in 1944 , the German army had been bled dry of its best troops on the Eastern front. Of course, the Western media never stop .pushing the D Day liberated the whole of Europe theory when it had nothing to do with why Germany lost the war.

    Also Britain for all the wealth of the so called commonwealth did sweet FA in the war other than bombing German civilians and supplying the communists to overrun Europe. That’s not something to be proud of.

  • One thing to be considered regarding Germany’s defeat is that things might have been even worse had the Reich held out for another three or four months. Then the Americans would have had their atom bombs ready. The jews created them specifically to be dropped on Germany and were depressed when the news of the surrender came before they were ready. Still, it is possible that the death toll might still not have exceeded that of the ‘conventional’ bombing of Dresden. The Germans were doomed no matter how courageously they resisted the demonic forces of the Allies.
