Since, there has been some controversy over the author whosereal name is Paul Schmidt and worked at a high level in theGerman propaganda departments during the days of the Third Reich.

I say who better to tell the tale? Knowing the source doeshelp you judge the angles. He held several positions in the Nazi Student Association. During the same year, he became the chief press spokesman for forei Outdated history by a discredited author. During the same year, he became the chief press spokesman for foreign minister Joachim von Ribbentrop. The author is a former PR man for the Nazis and any reader should evaluate any of his books with this in mind.

The book ends with the destruction of the German 6th Army in Stalingrad in early I really liked this book. It is told from the German perspective and there are a lot of personal accounts and events, that happened during this time frame. Usually from the account of a landser or key officer. This book may be dated, but I feel for the East Front grognard this account is one of the best from This book begins with a classic account of the German invasion of Russia in , Operation Barbarossa.

This book may be dated, but I feel for the East Front grognard this account is one of the best from the German side. I have been reading military history for years. My favorite interest has always been World War 2, and the East Front in particular. This book is in my top 10 of East Front histories.

No matter the date. January 1, Tyler This book details invasion of the Soviet Union with a level of description immensely satisfying to fans of World War II history without becoming too technical. The overall perspective is from the German side, but avoids getting exuberant about that angle, focusing more on the collapse of the Red Army.

I strongly recommend this book. January 1, Lew I read this book back in the seventies. I have had a fascination with the Eastern Front ever since. January 1, Neil This is thorough and lively history. Yet that is what happened. Inevitably one would desire to destroy the other and it was Hitler who struck first. One can understand why Soviet soldiers fought to the death in defense of their homeland. But what compelled the average German soldier to fight so tenaciously in a foreign land for an immoral cause despite hunger, cold, and shortage This is thorough and lively history.

But what compelled the average German soldier to fight so tenaciously in a foreign land for an immoral cause despite hunger, cold, and shortages of clothing, supplies and ammunition? The book does not answer this question. It testifies to the superior training and skills of the German military. Written by a German historian, the tale is told from a German perspective. At times it is very difficult to keep track of division and battalion and corps identifying numbers, but that is true of every military history.

Fortunately there are interesting anecdotes about both the Germans and Soviet soldiers. Since this was published over forty years ago, there are probably more updated histories of Operation Barbarossa available now. January 1, Mansoor Azam This one is a classical account of German eastern campaign. I really enjoyed reading this one. Author takes from the very start and builds the operation logically.

One feels the hard ships, the adventurism and the excitement of German soldiers and commanders moving east that summer and feels a part of them. It has a lot of detail and accounts that I found fascinating. It is written during those years, with a slanted view towards the Germans. January 1, Steve I read this a long time ago, but I was able recently to find an old copy at a used book story.

I have no idea how this now holds up as history, but at the time I remember being blown away by the sheer scale of the Nazi attack. Also, Carell is never boring.

January 1, Captain Sir Roddy, R. I finally was able to obtain hardcover copies of both volumes and look forward to rereading them soon. January 1, Well told by a writer at the heart of the Third Reich. January 1, Guido Costantini Immense, engrossing, detailed, filled with human stories and One of the best books on this theatre of war ever written, but to be taken wih a grain of salt, possibly while reading in parallel a non nazi-German which is what Carell was, without any doubt historian.

Carell brings forward not alone in that the theory that Barbrossa was a pre-emptive attack to avoid the Soviet one which was undoubtly coming. That has been confirmed by several soviet historians. January 1, Shawn Luca This is an interesting, complex work of history. This is a serious academic study, but highly recommended in my opinion.

Hitler moves east, 1941-1943.

He held several positions in the Nazi Student Association. During the same year, he became the chief press spokesman for foreign minister Joachim von Ribbentrop. Schmidt chaired the daily press conferences of the ministry, and was thus one of the most important and influential propagandists for National Socialism during World War II. Recent studies confirm that his influence was at least on the same level as that of Otto Dietrich Reichspressechef of Adolf Hitler and of Hans Fritzsche Pressechef of the Reichspropagandaministerium. Schmidt was also responsible[ clarification needed ] for the German propaganda magazine Signal , which was published in several languages to tell the German side of the story in neutral and occupied countries during the war.

Hitler Moves East 1941–1943

Jan 08, Mark Lisac rated it really liked it A vivid panorama of a colossal conflict, told at the strategic, tactical and personal level. Tales of savage fighting and unimaginable hardship. Strictly a military history. That allows the author to ignore all the horrendous killing going on in the rear areas. The studious avoidance is hardly surprising.
