While Moscow to Stalingrad is filled with detail it isn't boring to read. Mr. Ziemke's writing is compelling and brings the tension and horror through while maintaining a scholarly professional tone.
My usual gripe about all books on war is the lack of maps. I always want more and larger maps. There are never enough.
Excellent book about the most important fighting in WWII.
I went to the Soviet Union in 1976 for a college class during my sophomore year (I was in Moscow for our Bicentennial, LOL) and I was surprised at how obsessed the Russians still were with WWII or, as they referred to it, The Great Patriotic War. It had been, at the time, over 30 years since it ended so I thought their obsession was a little over the top--until I dug deeper into how horrific their suffering was at the hand of the Nazis. Over 20,000,000 Soviet citizens died during the war. I went to Leningrad, Moscow & Kiev. They purposely left bombed out buildings in every place I visited and treated them as shrines. I remember in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), there would be bullet holes in buildings with a little brass plaque next to them. Kiev was the same. We visited the newly-opened memorial at Babi Yar, the site of a horrific massacre of Soviet Jews & other citizens by the Nazis. Almost 34,000 people were killed there in a 24-hour period.
This book is filled with facts, readable, and it held my interest from beginning to end. I plan to purchase other volumes in this series. It was very much worth the extremely reasonable price of $2.00 for the Kindle version.
