Bernd Wegner, ed. From Peace to War: Germany, Soviet . From Peace to War: Germany, Soviet Russia and the World, 1939-1941. Providence and Oxford: Berghahn Books, 1997. The 1939-1941 period contains most if not all of these elements of modern German-Russian relations. However, what makes these years endlessly fascinating is their singularity. The book is part of a ongoing series of publications-of both sources and scholarship-on the history of World War II sponsored by the German hes Forschungsamt. Without being comprehensive, or laying any claims to this, the book covers a wide variety of topics.

Soviet War Preparations The Soviet ability to deny victory to Germany in 1941 was rooted in prewar preparations.

High military spending and continual preparation for war were already ingrained in Soviet military-economic policy in the 1930s.

The German attack on the Soviet Union in June 1941 represents one of the major caesuras in European history. Its consequences could still be felt fifty years later. Thirty-five historians from nine different countries (including the former Soviet Union) offer a comprehensive survey of the origins, course and long-term impact of this event. The volume is not merely concerned with political and military history, but also with the experiences of ordinary soldiers and civilians.

The text is a collection of 35 essays covering the period before and during the great patriotic war. All of the authors are scholars in history with an interesting submssion of Major-General Juri Kirshin who provides the Russian (Soviet) view of the eve of the Great Patriotic war.
What gives the text balance are two essays: "Stalin and Hitler's attack on the Soviet Union" by Gabriel Gorodetsky and "The Soviet Union's offensive preparations in 1941" by Joachim Hoffmann. Both authors give the two sides of the contention that Barbarossa was a pre-emptive strike by Germany.

Each essay is supported by ample references with footnotes. The text is costly but covers a lot of ground. While some may lambast the work of Suvorov's "Ice Breaker", I believe is one of the many volumes (Gorodetsky, Glantz and others) that owe their existance to renewed interest in this area.

So worth the read that it pushed Read and Fisher's "Deadly Embrace" off my shelf.

Peace to War might look like War and Peace but its size and title belies its depth and breadth. Clearly, with a subject as large as German-Soviet relations 1939-1941, there is much it cannot cover in the detail but the essays are comprehensive, interesting and stimulating, generating a quest for further knowledge. It seems a tad pricey but I am thoroughly enjoying the intellectual challenge that is the fundamental component of this book, and I am glad I bought it.
