I like the German background music in this video.  It is only 4 minutes long; have a listen.

The First East Prussian Offensive took place from 16–27 October 1944, and was carried out by the 3rd Belorussian Front under General I.D. Chernyakhovsky as part of the Memel Offensive of the 1st Baltic Front. The Soviet forces took heavy casualties while penetrating 30–60 km (19–37 miles) into East Prussia and Poland, and the offensive was postponed until greater reserves could be gathered.
The 2nd East Prussian Offensive lasted from 13 January to 25 April 1945, though some German units did not surrender until 9 May. The Battle of Königsberg was a major part of the offensive, which ended in victory for the Red Army.
