This book, and its twin Stalingrad to Berlin, are the must have books for anyone interested in the Russo-German conflict, unbeatable for not only facts and figures but also the way in which the characters involved are portrayed. The two volumes should be in every war buff's library.

HASH(0x91effda4) out of 5 stars Illustrated account of WWII history good book for history buffs. 7 Sept. 2013
By forlotto - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book has a balanced and comprehensive view of the second World War. Up to, and including, a key turning point in the war. This key turning point was in the East at the battle of Stalingrad. From about 1941 - 1942 accenting on early to mid 1942 during the aggressive offensive. It is rather fast paced but easy to read the illustrations help you plot out what is happening as you travel through this piece of history. From what I can tell the author has researched his materials exhaustively, perhaps making it one of the best values for this historical incident.

HASH(0x91efffcc) out of 5 stars Great Insights and Good Reading 22 Jan. 2014
By Alan Dale Daniel - Published on Amazon.com

Moscow to Stalingrad by Ziemke is an excellent book on the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union in WWII. One of the books best features is the disclosure of how very hard it is to get accurate information about the Russians. Even recently released documents are not consistent and often purposefully fog errors of Stalin and the Soviet high command. What the book is full of is the Nazi reasoning for the invasion and for the various strategic decisions made during this critical era of WWII. The German Army certainly had different ideas about warfare than Hitler, and those differences come through in this excellent rendition of the war in the east. The arguments between the generals themselves and Hitler were captured in writing and the author makes excellent use of this resource.

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.

HASH(0x91f0124c) out of 5 stars Just the Facts 30 Dec. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

If you want to know in excruciating detail what happened on the Eastern front in 41 and 42, right down to the daily weather and temperature, this has to be the definitive work. Don't look to be entertained, and keep a map handy as Mr Ziemke pours out the data. And he takes GREAT pains to point out where his beliefs differ from other accounts of the same battles. And unbelievably well documented source book.

HASH(0x91f01588) out of 5 stars Detailed and long but not "illustrated" 17 July 2014
By San Juan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Well-researched and well-written, but very long. Long is not bad, especially with such a large subject, but the lack of maps, photos and anecdotes of soldiers' experiences to give the story more detail and interest hampers the book as a whole. Digital version maps are at the end of the text, necessitating a lot of back and forth with the text, and they are small and hard to read on Kindle.

I'm not a military history buff, but I have been interested in WWII since I was a kid because of my dad. He dropped out of high school, lied about his age, and enlisted in the Marines on December 8, 1941. He ended up in the 1st Marine Division, and was a Marine Raider and was in the first wave at Guadalcanal. He participated in some of the most horrific & bloody battles in the Pacific. He was an avid hunter before the war, but never killed another animal after he received an Honorable discharge in 1947. He said that he saw and participated in enough killing to last him a lifetime. He was always interested in the European theater. I think it's because he just didn't want to relive his experiences fighting the Japanese. Also, his closest cousin was in the Air Force & flew missions in North Africa against Rommel & the Afrika Korps.

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.
