A Gripping and Riveting Short History of Operation Barbarossa
In just four weeks in the summer of 1941, the German Wehrmacht wrought unprecedented destruction on four Soviet armies. They conquered central Ukraine, killing or capturing three-quarters of a million men.
This is an informative and insightful military history of the Battles of Kyiv and Leningrad as well as Hitler's march on Moscow. This was one of the largest and most decisive battles of World War II and, for Hitler and Stalin, a battle of crucial importance. Daniel Wrinn charts the battle's dramatic course and aftermath, uncovering the irreplaceable losses suffered by Germany's "panzer groups" despite their battlefield gains, and the implications of these losses for the German war effort.
