RAGING BRIDGEHEAD - (Peleshi, August 08 - 09, 1941)

On August 8, 1941, at 10:00 after an artillery barrage, 1TD was launched an offensive on the bridgehead near Bol.Sabsk. German tanks and infantry attacked at the junction of 286 and 173IR 90RD, in the direction of Peleshi. An offensive in this direction came as a surprise to the Red Army units.
The German 1TD 41AC units captured bridgeheads on the bank of r.Luga in the area of Bolshoy Sabsk. Germans, stubbornly holding the bridgeheads at Ivanovka, Porechye, Bolshoy Sabsk, continued to accumulate infantry and tanks in the Porechye and Sabsk areas, preparing for a further offensive in the direction of Krasnogvardeysk. 1TD takes defense on a bridgehead in the Bolshoy Sabsk area. Neighbor on the right - 36MID. 1TD is combat-ready enough to continue the offensive, despite the losses incurred in previous battles. The days spent in defense by the division were used for the repair and preparation of equipment and weapons. According to intelligence, in the 1TD defense sector, the enemy occupies fortified positions north of Yazvishche. 90RD units take defense at Bolshoy Sabsk. A large amount of artillery is also concentrated in the area. The battalions of the Leningrad Infantry School occupy defense on the right flank near the highway.
