    4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introdution to the Eastern Front 2 Oct 2013
    By James J. Bjorkman - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Lots of great pictures, many of which I had not seen before. There also were very useful captions which contained information it would be extremely difficult to know otherwise. I might wish that in future efforts the author give just a bit more background on the photos to the extent it is known - who took them, where, what happened to the person who took them - but I realize that is asking a lot. But it's easy to ask! LOL. Anyway, if you want not already a complete student of the war, this is an excellent photographic introduction to the war on the Eastern Front. Thanks for publishing it.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Vast 14 Sep 2013
    By brutus sanchez - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This book really conveys the enormity of the German undertaking, overshadowed by the vastness of the Soviet landscape. The book conveys a sense of the doom that awaited these (mostly) non-political grunts, even during the sunny days of early success. Alexander Nevsky, anyone?

    The narrative is sparse, but I appreciated the authors pointing out details in many of the photos that would have easily escaped me.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Photos 21 Feb 2013
    By Rich in Florida - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Very interesting photos that I have never seen before, particularly the armor. Only drawback was that many of the photos had basically unknown subject matter or accurate documentation so the authors had to give an educated guess, which is understandable. Some photos were not commented on and I detected only a few errors. I'm sure the print version of the book is superior to the Kindle version, but I still recommend it.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but pro-german 30 Jan 2014
    By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    It was very intriguing to see the German invasion of Russia from the German point of view, through photographs made by German soldiers. I learned a lot about German and Soviet weapons and tactics. I wish more attention was paid to genocide and atrocities committed by the German army.
