Excellent narrative of the battles on the Eastern Front,
This review is from: The Road To Stalingrad: Stalin's War with Germany v. 1 (Paperback)
John Erickson is most certainly one of the best historians when it comes to the Eastern Front. "The Road to Stalingrad" portrays the Red Army’s struggle to come to terms with its own deficiencies and the overwhelming forces of the German army. This is definitely a must have for, not just those interested in the Eastern Front, but for all of those fascinated by the second world war. The only thing that I really miss is detailed maps over the operations. As it is, it is quite cumbersome to have a atlas in your lap while reading.
