THE COLD FRONT
No 2 'Knights Cross Collection'
The bitter Winter of 1943/44 was matched by some of the toughest fighting in the ground war. Between the Carpathian mountains and Dneiper river, elements of the 1st SS Panzer Division 'Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler' reinforced their fearsome reputation amidst a landscape gripped by ice and biting winds.
In 'The Cold Front', Panthers of SS. Pz Regt 1 move forward to new positions from where they can seek out Soviet Armour, passing by a stationary Tiger of the 13th Heavy Company LAH, whose commander scrutinises the unfamiliar and treacherous valley ahead. Lit by a fleeting shaft of sunlight, Fw190A's of Hptm Erich Rudorffer's II/JG54 roar overhead, hunting for Soviet ground attack aircraft that would threaten this Panzer spearhead. Sadly, despite the caution of its commander, Tiger 'S44' would be one of the many tanks lost by both sides before the winter thaw set in.
