On the Valentine Day of 1944 a landing was launched from the island Lavansaare. The
600 men had a goal to close in the Germans in Narva. 56 out of the 600 drowned after
jumping to the water, heavy rubber-suits tore their torso under-water, pushing their legs
up. 525 bodies was the result of a battle kept on the dry land.
