Overview

The first of two volumes in John Erickson's monumental, critically acclaimed history of the Soviet-German war.In fascinating detail, The Road to Stalingrad takes us from the inept command structures and strategic delusions of the pre-invasion Soviet Union through Russia's humiliation as her armies fell back on all fronts, until the tide turned at last in Stalingrad. The assessment of the generals and political leaders, as well as of the wranglings within both the Allied and Axis commands, is completely unsparing. The climactic battle, so vividly described here, leaves the Red Army poised for the long fight towards Berlin.
This is not to be missed by any military buff or student of World War II. "The outstanding book on the Soviet war in any language. "—Observer.

    Extremely difficult to read

    This is a book should be called 'They are coming to Stalingrad.' From the title, one may think this is a German perspective of the war, but not, it is solely the Russian. It is impossible to follow the reading. Thousands of easy-to-forget names and places. Not a single map. I had to find maps on the internet to figure it out. It is so detailed that you find yourself lost without knowing what you are reading. Don't get me wrong, a great effort from the author, but just does not make sense.

    A wonderful thesis, impossible to read

    This is a unique attempt to show the pre-war and wartime history of WWII from the Russian side. It is NOT a personal account, but a large scale history. Saying that, it is also without maps, does not define the constantly changing Russian units or give reference sources that are available in English and that can be obtained. In other words if you read Russian and German and are totally familiar with Russian geography it is WONDERFUL, if not it is IMPOSSIBLE to decipher or follow references.

    Bird's eye view, and boring

    You are simply not going to get any feeling for how the war actually was fought at the front by the grunt in this book. Plenty of correspondance between Stalin and his generals and descriptions of battles like you might find on a military map with the moving around of divisions and fronts. Incredibly, there are no maps to help in visualizing each battle. I know it must have been a monumental project to even assemble all of the events into one volume, but can't help thinking the author could have made the accounting less dry and more entertaining.

    Impossible to describe

    Here is a new publication of a previously published book. However, the publisher doesn't choose to say if it has been revised or just reprinted. Should I wait until Aug. for a 'newer' version, or buy an existing one because the upcoming one is NO DIFFERENT? Three Stars is a guess, until the book arrives.
