Re: Finnmark 1944

Germans burns villages and taken people with them, when retreating. So it's looks logically to them to take also ships and cutters, and to destroy vessels which cannot to be taken. I have read many german Heer and Kriegsmarine documents and never see any precise digits. I think sunk was very small f...

Next day ship headed more to south, to Poti. 19.9.42 tug VEZHILOV bring VOROSHILOV from Poti to Batumi. Obviously ship wasn't...
