Day 745 September 14, 1941
Siege of Leningrad Day 7. German XXXXI motorised corps (Armeekorps [mot]) under General Georg-Hans Reinhardt attempts to pinch off a Soviet salient 50 miles along the South shore of Gulf of Finland from Leningrad. Soviet General Zhukov who took command yesterday launches counterattacks into the flanks of XXXXI AK [mot] to hold the salient, desperate to obey Stalin's orders to attack immediately no matter the cost.
