“There were difficulties only in the Murmansk sector, where the construction of fortified winter quarters in the rocky
subsoil of the tundra was extremely difficult. Moreover, it was necessary to bring the required wood from great
distances to the treeless coast of the Arctic Ocean. This instance once more proved the absolute necessity of making
intensive and timely preparations for winter in the Far North. Nevertheless, it may be said that once the German Army
troops became acclimated to Lapland their physical condition was and continued to be entirely satisfactory.”
