4.0 out of 5 stars War Without Garlands, 10 July 2010
An interesting analysis of the opening year of the German - Russian conflict. Creates substantial suspense in the lead up to H-Hour through the stories of soldiers on both sides who were preparing for it. Addresses the subject matter on a more individual level to 'Barbarossa' (which remains the seminal work on the subject in my view) which is interesting, and gives a better indication of the conditions that the combatants faced.

However, it does repeat itself often - evidence, perhaps, that the book was written in separate sections and assembled - by giving explanations of points in duplicate or triplicate. Additionally, the author refers to points he has made previously. Unfortunately, I don't believe that those points were enunciated sufficiently clearly earlier on and this makes it harder to follow his reasoning - though with consideration the points were nevertheless perfectly valid.

On the whole, I would certainly recommend this book, though not as a first foray into the German eastern front. I would still recommend reading 'Barbarossa', by Alan Clark, first.
