The Leningrad Front was first formed on August 27, 1941, by dividing the Northern Front into the Leningrad Front and Karelian Front, during the German approach on Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg).

The front was immediately given the task of containing the German drive towards Leningrad, and to defend it from the approaching Army Group North. By September 1941, German forces to the south were effectively stopped on the outskirts of Leningrad, initiating the two and a half year long Siege of Leningrad.

Although Finnish forces to the north stopped at the old Finnish-Soviet border, the Leningrad front suffered severe losses in the ensuing Continuation War. From September 8, soldiers of the front were forced to conduct operations under the conditions of a blockade, with very little supply. Some supplies did reach the city however via the lake Road of Life.
