This review is from: Barbarossa: The Russian German Conflict: The Russian German Conflict, 1941-45 (CASSELL MILITARY PAPERBACKS) (Paperback)
I came across this book having previously read Stalingrad Berlin and Moscow 1941. It is an excellent read which is easy to follow and understand. Further it addresses the questions that seemed to arise from the other books previously mentioned in that it gives you a good oversight to the whole battle along the Eastern Front. My only issue with this book is that having originally been published in 1965 Alan Clarke did not follow this up with reference to any of the new information which have may have come to light especially since the changes in the Soviet Union. Unfortunately now he is dead we will have to wait for another author to take up the mantle. (He does address this question in 1985 in the book however so much has come to light since then.)
Overall an excellent read and a good insight to Hitler, his Generals, the Third Reich and The Eastern Front.
