This review is from: Hitler's Panzers East: World War II Reinterpreted (Paperback)
This book contains excellently researched supportive material. The eastern front of WWII has been described as one of the most extrodinary wars of all. Labelled 'The Great Patriotic War' by the Russians, much of the USSR statstics have been altered by that government. Mr.Stolfi takes another look at this great and terrible conflict. Statistically and realistically the author examines both The Wehrmact and Red Army's capabilities from the beginning of 'Barbarossa' to the end of 1941. Could Army Group Center of the German Army have marched on Moscow in August, 1941? What would have been the ramifications of this strategy? What are the misconceptions of this conflict? All of these questions are elaborated on in sufficient detail.
