It was the beginning of Hitler's Operation Barbarossa, one of the most brutal campaigns in the history of warfare. Four years later, the victorious Red Army has suffered a loss of seven million lives. Alan Clark's incisive analysis succeeds in explaining how a fighting force that in one two-month period lost two million men was nevertheless able to rally to defeat the Wehrmacht.

The Barbarossa campaign included some of the greatest episodes in military history: the futile attack on Moscow in the winter of 1941-42, the siege of Stalingrad, the great Russian offensive beginning in 1944 that would lead the Red Army to the historic meeting with the Americans at the Elbe and on to victory in Berlin.

I love this book. Others have done a fantastic job of describing its pros and its cons (yes, there are a few flaws). But the reason I consider this book to be THE DEFINITIVE WORK on the Eastern Front during WWII is because Alan Clark, a Western historian, boldly declared in 1964, in the middle of the Cold War, the following (hereafter an excerpt from Clark's Preface, p. xxi):

"From this study is one left with any general conclusions? I believe the answer is yes, but they are not of a kind from which we in the West can derive much comfort. It does seem that the Russians could have won the war on their own, or at least fought the Germans to a standstill, without any help from the West. Such relief as they derived from our participation - the distraction of a few enemy units, the supply of a large quantity of material - was marginal, not critical. That is to say, it affected the duration but not the outcome of the struggle. It is true that once the Allies had landed in Normandy the drawing-off of reserves assumed critical proportions. But the threat, much less the reality, of a 'second front' became a factor only after the real crisis in the East had passed."

Writing this in 1964 took a lot of courage. And it speaks to why this book is such a worthy read for anyone studying World War Two - the author obviously has made sincere and fervent attempts to speak the truth as much as he could perceive it, which in the final analysis is the duty of all true historians.

Read it in 1965 and recently again. A well written take on the enormous conflict that was the Russo-German War. In my opinion, both nations are given a balanced assessment. The book also holds your attention. This would be an excellent first reading on the subject, along with such books as "Ivan's War."

Wonderfully written and full of insights contrary to the conventional wisdom - that it was Hitler's refusal to retreat after his defeat before Moscow in winter 1941 that saved the German Army from the fate suffered by Napoleon 150 years before; that Hitler's refusal to allow the 6th Army to withdraw from Stalingrad was essential in saving the Germans from and even bigger disaster, the loss of all their forces in southern Russia; that the single most important reason the German Army failed to defeat Russia in 1941 was the primitive nature of the Soviet road system. If Russia had roads comparable to France, Hitler would have been in Moscow by September 1941. A must read for anyone interested in the story of history's most cataclysmic military campaign.

This very well written history of the German assault into the Soviet Union and the ensuing war along the Eastern front represents a kind of landmark in being one of the earliest of the many histories of that conflict to emphasize the enormous contribution of the Russians to the Allied effort. It was considered controversial in its time because of its emphasis on Soviet strengths and attributes as central to the eventual result. Most other historians had argued that blame for losing the war belonged to Hitler, the Wehrmacht and the well-debated arguments and disagreements among the German General Staff regarding the specifics of the waging the total war Hitler had envisioned must be fought to annihilate the Russian army.

All the basics are here; the tragic misinterpretation of Soviet strength, especially as it applies to Soviet reserve and manpower resources, which were 300 percent higher than believed, the belief that by simply crushing the troops massed between the border and the Leningrad-Moscow-Crimea salient they would crush the communist government and send the country into anarchy, chaos, and ruin, and their own uniform arrogance in believing they could master and quickly dominate this gargantuan nation of several hundred million in a single season. Hitler and the German General Staff were shocked and amazed again and again by the tenacity, resourcefulness, and staying power of an army they had presumed to have already beaten in the opening weeks of the campaign. The author masterfully explains how the Russians, after losing two million men in a single two-month period could rally itself, reorganized, re-outfit, and send another two million into combat so quickly. This is truly one of the most maligned, misunderstood and mysterious aspects of the war in Europe.

Alan Clark has succeeded in this book, which was first published in 1965, in providing an entertaining, edifying, and accurate overview of what the Russians referred to as the "Great Patriotic War". He centers in on four aspects of the more than four year long struggle; first, on the futile and badly coordinated attack on Moscow in the early winter of 1941-42; second, the siege at Stalingrad, a Wehrmacht blunder of catastrophic proportions; third, the Kursk offensive in 1943, which was the largest and most dramatic tank battle in history; and finally, the great Soviet offensive beginning in 1944 that drove the Wehrmacht to its knees, sending it crawling back inch buy inch and yard by yard all the way to the ashes and ruins of a ravaged Berlin. My recommendation is to combine this excellent book with "When Titans Clashed", a more recent tome, which provides an amazing nuts and bolts perspective that is even more strictly written from the Soviet perspective. With the two books combined, you will have a much better understanding of the war along the Eastern front and better appreciated how the Russians did so much to win the European theater of the Second World War. Enjoy!

Excellent read, very glad I bought it. Blends the political story with the military story (in great depth) and even includes personal, on the ground experiences at points. Highly recommend

I consider myself reasonably well read on the Eastern Front... this book has a unique perspective in the evaluation of personalities and circumstances affecting the Eastern Front war from beginning to end. A careful study is made of the events leading to the war, the conduct of it and the effect of many decisions. Old Man Winter does not get the simple credit for the defeat of the German Army, and the three separate major defeats of the German Army (Moscow, Stalingrad and Kursk) are examined in relation to the surrounding battles, the decisions impacting each defeat, and the effect personalities played in those consequences.

I recommend it.
