Estonia became a Battleground
For 3 and a half in 1941 months Estonia became a battleground between Germany and the Soviet Union. Being on the left flank of the German drive on Leningrad the country became split between the German forces and the Red Army in mid July 1941. After that both sides attempted to capitalize on the limited maneuvering room to encircle and destroy each others forces as Germany attempted to capture the Soviet naval bases in Estonia while Red Army did everything to retain them.
