More About This Book

Overview

"Hayward makes a convincing case for the centrality of air power for German military operations in 1942."—Omer Bartov, Times Literary Supplement

"A major contribution to the history of the Russo-German War."—Dennis Showalter, author of Tannenberg: Clash of Empires

"This is a model of its kind, which ought to set an agenda for the reconstruction of the air narrative in this and other theatres in the greatest of air wars."—Richard Overy, War in History

"In Stopped at Stalingrad, an original and formidably researched study, Joel Hayward argues that the key, not only to a correct understanding of the disastrous outcome for Sixth Army at Stalingrad, but also to a more accurate appreciation of Operation Blau, the German summer campaign in 1942, requires close scrutiny of Luftwaffe operations, something hitherto lacking. . . . Stopped at Stalingrad is an absolutely indispensable work not only for its revelations about Stalingrad, but equally for a more complete understanding of the nature of Soviet-German operations in a critical year."—John Erickson, RUSI Journal

"A comprehensive view of one of the most important air campaigns of World War II and an insightful study of the Luftwaffe's leaders and its way of war. A 'must read' for anyone interested in the airpower history of World War II."—James S. Corum, author of The Luftwaffe: Creating the Operational Air War, 1918-1940

"An outstanding and long-overdue campaign history that puts a human face on the military decision-making process."—Richard Muller, author of The German Air War in Russia

"A major contribution to the history of the Russo-German War."—Dennis Showalter, author of Tannenberg: Clash of Empires

Author Biography: Joel S. A. Hayward lectures in defense and strategic studies at Massey University in Palmerston North, New Zealand. He is a research associate of the U.S. Air Force Historical Research Agency.

    Essential classic. Awesome and definitive work.

    The best book on Stalingrad, by an author whose new book on Lord Nelson is already widely hailed as the best book on Nelson. Great research, original conclusions, fluent writing!

    Definitive

    This book leaves Anthony Beevor's book for dead. It explains with tremendous insight and reliability the whole strategy of German eastern front operations in 1942. It has uniquely a bi-service, or 'joint', focus, meaning that it analyses the close cooperation between Luftwaffe and German army (Heer). Without Luftwaffe support, Hayward points out, the German army would not even have reached Stalingrad. The research is unimpeachable, being based on a very deep and long study of German reports, squadron and division records and even commanders' personal diaries. This book has become a classic and is considered the standard work on the subject. No wonder: it is thoroughly researched, thoughfully structured and argued, and expertly written. Magnificent!!
