Operation Barbarossa and the Easternt Front 1941 is a highly illustrated record of the German Invasion of the Soviet Union, which began on 22 June 1941.
Across a stretch of land over 1,800 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 of 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Using an extensive collection of rare and previously unpublished photographs together with detailed captions and accompanying text, Operation Barbarossa and the Easternt Front 1941 provides a unique insight into the troops, tanks, weapons, uniforms and battlegrounds used during this bitter and costly campaign.
It is an ideal reference for Second World War enthusiasts, scholars and modelers alike.
