The Battle of Memel or the Siege of Memel took place when the Soviets launched their Memel Offensive Operation (Russian: Мемельская наступательная операция) in late 1944. The offensive led to a three-month siege against the German forces in a small, tactical, bridgehead in the town of Memel and its port. The bridgehead was finally crushed as part of a subsequent offensive, the East Prussian Offensive of early 1945. It ended in a Soviet victory.
