The Battle of Murmansk was a battle fought in Northeast Russia between Communist and the para-military/personal Army of General-Brigade Nikolai Vikolash-kayef on November 17th, 1965. It lasted a mere 13 hours from morning to 7 P.M., and resulted in the capitulation of the entire Red Communist army and its infrastructure's destruction. It also resulted in Vikolash-kayef becoming a Russian national hero, and his future rise to power. The Communists were led by Vasily Lenin, the Revolutionary Vladimir Lenin's son. 2,000 German mercenaries assisted the Communists; they did so in an attempt to topple the then-incumbent Russian Republican government. They failed.
