The Siege of Leningrad, also known as The Leningrad Blockade (Russian: блокада Ленинграда, transliteration: blokada Leningrada) was an unsuccessful military operation by the Axis powers to capture Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg) during World War II. The siege started at 9 September 1941, when the last land connection to the city was severed. Although Soviets managed to open narrow land corridor to the city at 18 January 1943, the total lifting of the siege happened at 27 January 1944, 872 days after it began. The Siege of Leningrad was one of the longest and most destructive sieges of major cities in modern history and it was the second most costly in terms casualties.
