The author recreates the course of the Great Patriotic War from the point of view of the military and ordinary Russians, from the Hitler Stalin Pact through to Operation Barbarossa and the Soviet victories which led to the capture of Berlin.
Richard Overy recreates the course of the Great Patriotic War from the point of view of the military and the ordinary people. From the Hitler-Stalin pact through the unleashing of Operation Barbarossa, to the great series of Soviet victories which led to the capture of Berlin, Overy brilliantly recreates this apocalyptic struggle. Drawing on the most recent research, illustrated with unique Russian cine stills, RUSSIA'S WAR proves conclusively that however significant the Anglo-American role in defeating Hitler's armies, this was fundamentally brought about by events on the Eastern Front.
