Very good addition to the series,
This review is from: Moscow 1941: Hitler's First Defeat (Campaign) (Paperback)
This book does what the Osprey Campaign series does at its best. It takes a familiar subject, cuts it down to the nuts and bolts of the action, with clear and concise text, detailed maps and excellent illustrations. What makes this one stand out is the focus on the supply situation and the weather. The author has a good go at debunking the myths about the impact of the winter weather on the German forces and suggests that the real failure was one of logistics which were just stretched too far. The only thing that stops me giving this five stars is the short shift given to the Soviet counter-attacks. Hopefully the author will do a follow up on the Soviet offensives of early 1942.
