Another masterpiece by Prit Buttar: the history of the Baltic States 1918-1945 and much more.,
This review is from: Between Giants: The Battle for The Baltics in World War II (General Military) (Hardcover)
It is better to explain immediately that this book tells you much more than the battle for the Baltics in WW2, indeed it tells you a complete history of the Baltic States since the Russian Revolution until the end of WW2, including also the history of the persecutions against the Jews there, during WW2, and the history of the Baltic partisans that fought against the Soviet Union after the end of WW2
To be more detailed these are the main contents:
a) History of the origins of the Baltic populations and history of the Baltic States 1918-1939.
b)Consequences of the Moltov-Ribbentrop Pact.
c) German preparations for Operation Barbarossa and the subsequent administration of the occupied territories.
d) Operation Barbarossa in the Baltic States on 1941.
e) The persecutions of the Jews in the Baltic States.
f) The fightings in the Baltic States : from Narva on January 1944, to Curland until the end of WW2.
g) The complete history of the Baltic partisans that often fought against the Germans during WW2 and after the Russians after WW2.
Prit Buttar's style is wonderful , every chapter of the book is full of first hand accounts and the reader feels to be with the German Panzergrenadieren running for thier lives or with the lithuanian jews hiding in the weapon factories.
If you read the previous books written by Brit Puttar or you are interested to know almost everything about the fights in the Baltic States on WW2, you can't miss this book.
