At the end of April 1942, fighting raged near the top of the world in the Soviet held Arctic. The
Russians were intent on launching a Spring Offensive before the thaw set in. Russian forces
made a landing on Cape Pikshuev with the objective of cutting off the retreat of the German 6th
Mountain Division. During the fighting the Russians had gained control of the vital high ground
on Hill 70. But by early May, the Germans had managed to gain control of the southern approaches to the hill. Determined to regain control, the Soviet 12th Naval Brigade formed up in
the hollows on the northern side to launch a counter-attack and throw the Germans off the hill.
But unbeknownst to the Russians, a small German unit had scaled the western side of the hill
and had taken up position to ambush the approaching Russian columns snaking up the hill.
