9780764343766: Barbarossa Unleashed: The German Blitzkrieg Through Central Russia to the Gates of Moscow June-December 1941

This book examines in unprecedented detail the advance of Germany's Army Group Center through central Russia, toward Moscow, in the summer of 1941, followed by brief accounts of the Battle of Moscow and subsequent winter battles into early 1942. Based on hundreds of veterans accounts, archival documents, and exhaustive study of the pertinent primary and secondary literature, the book offers new insights into Operation Barbarossa, Adolf Hitler s attack on Soviet Russia in June 1941. While the book meticulously explores the experiences of the German soldier in Russia, in the cauldron battles along the Minsk-Smolensk-Moscow axis, it places their experiences squarely within the strategic and operational context of the Barbarossa campaign. Controversial subjects, such as the culpability of the German eastern armies in war crimes against the Russian people, are also examined in detail. This book is the most detailed account to date of virtually all aspects of the German soldiers experiences in Russia in 1941.

About the Author:

Dr. Craig Luther is a former Fulbright Scholar (Bonn, West Germany, 1979-80) and recently retired Air Force historian. The preparation of this book took more than a decade of almost daily work, as well as five trips to Germany and one to Rzhev, Russia, to conduct archival research and meet with German veterans of the campaign in central Russia in 1941/42. His other books include, Blood and Honor, a history of the 12th SS Panzer-Division, Hitler Youth, 1943-45, and a new edition of the SS-Commando Otto Skorzeny s memoirs.

Review:

By exploiting a wide range of new sources and fresh archival-based interpretations, Craig Luther s new book offers refreshingly new perspectives on Hitler s Operation Barbarossa through the eyes of German soldiers and their commanders. This book is one of the first, if not the first one, to show the war through the prism of soldiers eyes. --Col David Glantz

To understand Operation Barbarossa and the generation that fought it, one must read this book. Craig Luther tells a story that uniquely balances history from above and history from below by pulling together existing literature, original archival material and a mass of private sources. This is high-class operational history full of illuminating details and stimulating ideas put in its proper political and strategic context. A work of outstanding scholarship. --Dr. Juergen Foerster, University of Freiburg

Craig Luther does everything everyone else covering Barbarossa's early days has done -- only, in more detail, and with a strong comparative analytical element. He integrates aspects that are increasingly compartmentalized by other authors of the Russo-German war. In particular, Luther balances admirably the Wehrmacht as an instrument of war and an instrument of genocide. And he documents the war's human face as well -- again without the pathos of a Paul Carell or the self-exculpation of so many Landser memoirs." --Dr. Dennis Showalter, Colorado College
