In September 1941, the German troops of the Army Group «North» broke through to the coast of the Gulf of Finland, it was a lightning offensive, on September 17, the fascists captured Strelna, September 23 - Peterhof. In early October 1941, the commander of the Leningrad front, Army General GK Zhukov ordered the troops of the 8th and 42nd Army to go on the offensive and defeat the Strelninsky-Peterhof group of the enemy.
Between October 5 and 8, 1941, several small tactical landings were landed on the coast of the Gulf of Finland in the Strelna and Peterhof areas. The goal: to throw down the fascist troops from the coast of the Gulf of Finland and restore ground communications, uniting with units of the 8th and 42nd armies, attacking the enemy by land. For several days there were bloody battles here, 5 sea assaults conducted an unequal battle with the invader. Almost all the landing was killed, left to lie in the Strelna park for many years. But the victims who were taken by the fighters were not in vain - the operation forced the enemy to hasten to strengthen their troops in this sector, removing some of the forces from Oranienbaum. It is entirely possible that for this reason the German command refused an offensive operation to liquidate the Oranienbaum bridgehead. The autumn operation of 1941 became one of the most tragic pages of the beginning of the Leningrad blockade, which was hushed up for a long time.
... On the shore of surf foam,
Breeze echoed the battle.
Fascist bullet struck by
A sailor was lying in Peterhof.
Wave on the wave running,
Kisses him in the hour of death.
He whispered softly, dying:
- Live, you sing about us...
