Part of a broader investigation to determine the vulnerability of the Soviet government's political and administrative control system. The present study describes how the Soviet administration and the population of Leningrad reacted to the German assault on, and subsequent siege of, Leningrad from 1941 to 1943. It is concluded that at no time were the leadership's political or administrative controls dangerously weakened nor were they ever seriously challenged by the population.
