'A gripping account of the opening stages of Hitler's war of extermination against the Russians. Michael Jones shows how the Wehrmacht nearly captured Moscow, which would have won the Second World War for the Nazis, and why they were eventually flung back at the cost of over 900,000 casualties. In many ways this was even more of a fulcrum moment of the war than the battle of Stalingrad, and Jones tells the story of the struggle with verve and scholarship' (Andrew Roberts)
