9780711034686: Kharkov 1942: Anatomy of a Military Disaster Through Soviet Eyes

In May 1942, the powerful German Wehrmacht and the massive Soviet Red Army were engaged in a bitter struggle. The initially rapid advance of the Wehrmacht deep into the Soviet Union against the Red Army had been halted by the spring of 1941. Red Army counter-offensives had stopped the German advance at Moscow by the spring of 1942 the Soviet leadership was convinced the Wehrmacht was fatally stretched. A counter-thrust by the Red Army at the southern end of the front line, near the town of Kharkov, would, they imagined, be a vital step in pushing the German Army back. The reality was very different. Soviet over-confidence meant that hundreds of thousands of their soldiers were to lose their lives in one of the most catastrophic offensives in Russian military history. For over half a century, the Soviets kept the scale of their defeat secret. Their victory at the second battle of Kharkov the following year also enabled them to obscure this event. Only in the last decade were the documents made generally available for the first time to reveal the true story of the battle. David M. Glantz, a leading expert on Soviet military strategy and operational art has drawn on contemporary reports and later documents to present a detailed analysis of Soviet military techniques and the scale of the Soviet defeat.
