NEW version from February 2017 Besides the near 60 coastal forts north of Lyngen, it was logical to include German and Russian positions around the Petsamo / Litza River in the Polar Map 1944. Although I have read a little about the fighting in the north, this was an area that was geographically unknown to me. Initially, I just wanted to draw a line between the German and Russian forces, but where did this "strike" go? where were the respective troops along the front line? Not a single map I examined matched the others. It was simply impossible for me to find a reference that I could use for the polar map. Even books written today are based on old maps, and I was not satisfied with taking a rough line from almost ten different maps. So I started studying aerial photography / satellite to find trenches, cannon positions, and more. Eventually, a line of defense formed for the German 6th corps (north) and a lot of support points for 2nd corps (south).
I can therefore present what I believe is the most accurate overview of the front line of the German and Russian forces. An accuracy based on the actual positions found in satellite photography
