Overview

In late September 1941 the war in the east was approaching a climax. Since the beginning of the German invasion on 22 June 1941, Soviet forces had suffered the staggering loss of over 2 million troops. Operation Typhoon began and in the first week of the offensive, the three German panzer armies surrounded virtually the bulk of the Soviet forces barring the way to Moscow. This title details the dramatic battle that took place right up to the suburbs of Moscow itself, and the defeat which altered Hitler's strategic management of World War II (1939-1945).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book followed me around; it captured my interest and made want to carry it with me. I read this book while wearing a number of different ‘hats’: ...history fan, a diorama builder, a researcher, and casual reader. This book meets the needs of all. As mentioned it was easy to read, comprehensive, full of details, great maps, great photos, and art work... I completely enjoyed this book and look forward to using it over and over for information and inspiration." -Scott Lodder, Armorama (April 2006)
