Eduard Dietl with German and Finnish Officers

General der Gebirgstruppe Eduard Dietl (Kommandierender General Gebirgskorps Norwegen) with German and Finnish officers in the northern Russian tundra, July 1941. In 29 June 1941, Dietl was placed in command of Operation Silver Fox (Unternehmen Silberfuchs) which targeted Russian ports and railroads east of Finland. The operation saw initial success, but the invasion forces very quickly became burdened by the harsh and unfamiliar terrain, and became stagnant by September 1941
