The Night Battle of Tehumardi took place in the late hours of 8 October 1944, and it was one of Saaremaa's bloodiest battles during World War II. The battle was fought between Soviet troops making their way towards Sõrve peninsula and a German convoy retreating from Kuressaare.
The bloody battle turned into hand-to-hand combat; both sides suffered heavy losses. Good to know: In memory of the dead, a monument was erected – it has the shape of a sword with depictions of male faces.

Standard Soviet War Memorial
The battle was significant. The memorial itself is ok - seemed like a pretty standard Soviet WW2 memorial. Worth a stop if you’re driving by.
Sarema in WW2
Places of biggest and bloody night battle on Sarema island during WWII. In this small and nice field russians and germans fight in close battle with knifes, shovels, bayonets and even hands in dark...
