Books Info:

The Eastern Front Day by Day, 1941--45 free pdf It was a campaign that Hitler believed would be over in four months. However four years later 35 million Soviets and five million Germans had been killed in a campaign that had ripped out the heart of the western USSR and Eastern Europe. The land was left gutted, the infrastructure was destroyed, and millions of civilians were homeless. Taking a chronological approach, the author allows the reader to see at a glance key battles, such as the great encirclement engagements of 1941 - Minsk, Smolensk and Kiev - the sieges of Leningrad and Stalingrad, the Battle of Kursk, and Operation Bagration in June 1944. The book includes information on all the central Soviet commanders who led the German and Soviet armies, such as Guderian, Zhukov, Manstein, Vatutin, Rokossovsky, and Model and Konev- examines the political events that influenced the war, such as the activities of the SS and Einsatzgruppen murder squads- and discusses anti-partisan activities and warfare propaganda. In addition, the technology of the conflict is also covered, with detailed accounts of the Ju-87 Stuka dive-bomber, the T-34, Tiger and Panther tanks, and the "Stalin's organ" Katyusha rocket launcher. This sophisticated text provides a comprehensive narrative comprising of social, technical and political aspects, essential knowledge for any student of the war on the Eastern Front.
