“Operation Barbarossa and the Eastern Front 1941” is an illustrated record of the German Invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941. Across a stretch of land of over 1800 miles long, over 4.5 million troops from the Axis powers marched to deliver what they thought would be a resounding blow to Soviet power in what was and still is the largest invasion in the history of warfare. After enjoying success after success and securing the capture of over 3 million Soviet troops, many whom died in Nazi work camps, the German-led assault was eventually curtailed and repulsed by a mixture of Russian determination, abhorrent winter conditions and over extended lines of communication.
Using an extensive collection of photographs together with detailed captions and accompanying text, Operation Barbarossa and Eastern Front 1941 provides an unique insight into the troops, tanks. weapons, uniforms and battlegrounds used during this bitter and costly campaign.
