"An excellent and powerfully written book that every student of the war, the Holocaust, and Nazi Germany will have to read."-Omer Bartov, author of Mirrors of Destruction: War, Genocide, and Modern Identity

"Up to now, Operation Tannenberg, the Nazi assault on Poland, has been overshadowed by the enormous literature on Operation Barbarossa. Rossino's book more than corrects that imbalance with a gripping account that conveys a real feel for those grim times and places."-Michael Burleigh, author of The Third Reich: A New History

"Rossino's fine study provides the 'missing link' between the traditional German expansionism of World War I and the 'war of annihilation' against the Soviet Union in 1941."-Christopher Browning, author of Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland

"An important work for anyone who wants to understand the war and the Wehrmacht's evolving relationship with National Socialism."-Geoffrey P. Megargee, author of Inside Hitler's High Command

Author Biography: Alexander B. Rossino is a research historian who lives in Arlington, Virginia.
