Arnsberg in The Hot War[]

During World War III, Soviet forces besieged Arnsberg throughout March, 1951.[1] The town finally fell at the end of the month; there wasn't much left of the place when it did.[2]

Arnsberg remained in Soviet hands until the war ended in July, 1952. The allies had begun a siege of the town just prior to the peace.[3]
