Hitler's Greatest Defeat is an amazing in-depth study into one of Hitler's greatest mistakes. With the world following the progress of the Normandy landings, the dramatic happenings on the distant Russian front were for many years destined to be ignored. Now 50 years later, a full length study of the defeat of Army Group Centre shows that a disaster greater even than the Allied invasion in France was inflicted upon the Germans many miles to the east. In this fine example of succinct analysis and accurate description, Paul Adair leads the reader through the build up to the campaign with studies of the German Army and its command structure and of the Soviet forces under Stalin.

Over 168 pages Adair charts the progress of the campaign, describing in detail the decision-making processes of both Stalin and Hitler and their respective high commands, the build-up for the campaign and then in excellent detail the actual day-by-day fighting that decided the campaign. Adair's narrative draws from a small but comprehensive bibliography which can certainly serve as a launch pad for deeper research into the campaign.
