Actions of Northwestern front and Heere Gruppe Nord on the Baltic states territory since 22nd of June by 10th of July of 1941 are viewed in this work. Sudden attack of Germany got troops of the Baltic Special military district by surprise. During the first hours of war Red Army's units suffered great casualties. Despite of the heroism of some separate units, command of Northwestern front lost contact with the troops and couldn't manage to organize strong defense. Counter attack on 23-25 of June of the 3rd and 12th mechanized Corps couldn't stop attack of the troops of Heere Gruppe Nord due to hurry organization. Only the 2nd armored division of the 3rd mechanized Corp could hold for two days units of the Panzer Group 4. However, the 2nd armored division was surrounded and almost completely destroyed, because of no support by other units. As a result, by 10th of July, 1941 units of Northwestern front left Lithuania, Latvia and went over to the territory of Estonia and Russia, suffering great losses.
