Battle of Krasny Bor
At Krasny Bor the Spanish suffered an onslaught from the Red Army they had never before experienced. The artillery bombardment was especially heavy, and they were considerably outnumbered by the mass of infantry unleashed against them. However, it was the Soviet tanks (T-34s and KV-1s) that finally broke through their lines. Almost all the Blue Division’s anti-tank guns were 37mm pieces, plus some captured examples of larger calibre. All were inadequate for the task of stopping the Soviet armour.
A Spanish engineer corporal, Antonio Ponte Anido (in the centre foreground), was awarded the San Fernando Cross for his part in taking on these steel monsters. On observing a Russian tank about to attack a first-aid post housing many defenceless wounded men, he raced to place anti-tank mines under its tracks. The ensuing explosion stopped the tank, but also resulted in his death.
Although the Spanish troops were impressed by the quality of the arms with which the Germans equipped the Blue Division, they soon came to appreciate that Soviet weapons were often more reliable and hard-wearing. The PPSh submachine gun (carried by the bottom left figure) and the Degtaryev DP light machine gun (carried by the standing soldier) were especially appreciated.
