I Like this book, Hundreds of pictures show the day to day life of soldiers and their material, not the most extravagant sceneries are shown but the day to day situations, often rare pictures, I think a nice purchase if you like this subject.

Fascinating Photo-Guide to Life on the Russian Front! 18 Sept. 2013
By Michael OConnor - Published on
Format: Paperback
The experiences of the German Army during their first winter in Russia have always interested me. Images of poorly clothed Wehrmacht landsers struggling to survive in unbelievably frigid conditions proved a fascinating contrast to earlier ones of victorious, seemingly invincible German forces driving into Mother Russia. For that reason, I was delighted to come across Michael Olive and Robert Edwards' FIRST WINTER ON THE EASTERN FRONT, 1941-1942, a rich, wide-ranging photo-guide to that time-period.

Part of Stackpole Books' MILITARY PHOTO SERIES, the Olive/Edwards book offers up 192 pages of photographs depicting life - and death - on the Russian Front shot by various German troopers. Hundreds of fairly well-captioned images show the Germans dressed in a variety of uniforms and improvised outfits coping with Father Winter, gobbling down chow, standing guard duty, manning posts, on the march, posing with tanks/artillery pieces/aircraft, relaxing in huts/buildings, etc.

An eight-page color insert features German and Russsian uniforms, weapons, equipment, etc.

Since this is a photo book, text is limited to an introductory chapter and one on Cholm and Demjansk.

I found FIRST WINTER ON THE EASTERN FRONT an interesting look at the German experience of waging war in Russian. It's a useful, visual 'how-it-was' guide that compliments so many fine Russian Front histories. Recommended.

Basically, just another picture book 11 Oct. 2013
By Te Bada - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book contains an interesting collection of photos, but as a history book it is nothing special and does not compare to works such as Glantz and earlier writers. For those interested in pictures it is fine, but the serious military historian will not find much of value here. The Look Inside feature gives you a good idea of what your going to get. Like most other Stackpole books you can expect to find this one in your local bookstores in about a year being sold for a fraction of the price, so it may be best to wait if this is what you want.
