Overview

The first of two volumes in a monumental history of the Soviet-German war. In fascinating detail, it 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 outstanding book on the Soviet war in any language. "—Observer.

Erickson's two-volume series appeared individually in 1975 and 1983, respectively. The first volume traces the roots of Russia's war with Germany as Hitler's crack ground troops pushed their way into Stalin's territory. The second installation continues the story as the Red Army struggles to force the invading enemy from its borders. A top-shelf military history. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
