6 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of this book are the author's vivid memories of service as a company commander in a Red Army officers' penal battalion on the Eastern Front 1944-45. During this time, he and his unit participated in the 1944 Soviet summer offensive Operation 'Bagration', the Vistula-Oder operation into eastern Germany, and the final assault on Berlin. The stories of penal companies and battalions in the Red Army gave birth to legends about men who rushed to the attack across minefields against German machine-guns with one rifle per three men. The author of this book knows from his own experience what

Panzer killers : anti-tank warfare on the Eastern Front by Artem Drabkin( )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What was it like to confront the German panzer armies as an anti-tank gunner on the Eastern Front during the Second World War? How could you hope overcome of one of the best-equipped, well-trained and tenacious armoured forces of the time? And how did the Red Army's tactics and skills develop over the course of the war in order to counter the threat posed by the elite troops of the Wehrmacht? The vivid personal narratives of Red Army anti-tank men selected for this book give a fascinating insight into these questions - and into the first-hand experience of anti-tank warfare seventy years ago. Their testimony reveals how lethal, rapid, small-scale actions - gun against tank - were fought, and it shows how such isolated actions determined the outcome of the massive offensives and counter-offensives that characterized the struggle on the Eastern Front
Red road from Stalingrad : recollections of a Soviet infantryman by Mansur Abdulin( Book )

8 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mansur Abdulin fought in the front ranks of the Soviet infantry against the German invaders at Stalingrad, Kursk and on the banks of the Dnieper. This is his ... story. His vivid inside view of a ruthless war on the Eastern Front gives a rare insight into the reality of the fighting and into the tactics and mentality of the Red Army's soldiers. In his own words, and with a remarkable clarity of recall, he describes what combat was like on the ground, face to face with a skilled, deadly and increasingly desperate enemy. The terrifying moments of action, the discomfort of existence at the front, the humorous moments, the absurdities and cruelties of army organization, and the sheer physical and psychological harshness of the campaign - all these aspects of a Soviet soldier's experience during the Great Patriotic War are brought dramatically to life in Mansur Abdulin's memoirs. Of special interest is the insight he offers into ordinary operations and daily life in the lower ranks of the Soviet army. As he tells his story he reveals much about the thinking of the men, their attitude to the war and their loyalties. He also sheds light on the tense relationships between the disparate national groups that were thrown together to create a huge fighting force. But most memorable are his honest, horrifying descriptions of combat, of being bombed and shelled, of trench warfare, of enduring tank attacks and friendly fire, and of coping with the wounded and the dead"--Publisher's description
Barbarossa and the retreat to Moscow : recollections of fighter pilots on the Eastern Front by Artem Drabkin( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The onset of war in the summer of 1941 was a disaster for the Soviet Air Force. In a few weeks, faced by the onslaught of the Luftwaffe, most of the Soviet frontline aircraft were destroyed, and the casualty rate among the pilots was cripplingly high. Yet the surviving few gained precious battle experience and they formed the core of the fighter force that turned the tables on the Germans and eventually won air superiority over the Eastern Front. Many of these Soviet pilots are still alive today and in this book they vividly recall the air battles of 60 years ago. In their memories, they recollect the chaos of the first moments of war - the nightmare of retreat and the overwhelming numerical and technological superiority of the Luftwaffe which wiped out fresh Soviet squadrons in days. But they also remember how their battle experience rapidly grew and how, with modern warplanes and new pilots, they confronted the Luftwaffe and eventually reversed the course of the war in the air. Looking back, they relive the terrifying dogfights they took part in, the exhilaration of shooting down an enemy, and the shock and bitterness of losing a friend. Most of the fighter pilots who contributed to this book were shot down at least once. Some were taken prisoner, escaped and joined partisans fighting behind the German lines. Some of these men were aces, with many victories to their names, and others were ordinary pilots. But they all have remarkable stories to tell"--Jacket
Barbarossa through Soviet eyes : the first twenty-four hours by Artem Drabkin( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"22 June 1941 changed the direction of the Second World War. It also changed the direction of human history. Unleashing a massive, three-pronged assault into Soviet territory, the German army unwittingly created its own nemesis, forging the modern Russian state in the process. Thus, for most Russians, 22 June 1941 was a critical point in their nation's history. After the first day of 'Barbarossa' nothing would be the same again -- for anyone. Now, for the first time in English, Russians speak of their experiences on that fatal Sunday. Apparently caught off guard by Hitler's initiative, the Soviets struggled to make sense of a disaster that had seemingly struck from nowhere. Here are generals scrambling to mobilise ill-prepared divisions, pilots defying orders not to grapple with the mighty Luftwaffe, bewildered soldiers showing individual acts of blind courage, and civilians dumbstruck by air raid sirens and radio broadcasts telling of German treachery."--Publisher description
The Red Army at war : rare photographs from wartime archives by Artem Drabkin( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What was life in the Red Army like for the ordinary soldier during the Great Patriotic War, the fight between the Soviet Union and Germany on the Eastern Front? How far is the common perception of Red Army heroism and sacrifice borne out by historical reality? And what was the daily experience of the individual soldier caught up in this immense and ruthless conflict? The 200 contemporary photographs from the Russian archives that have been selected for this book give a striking insight into all sides of wartime service for the Soviet soldier. The whole range of military experience is portrayed here, from recruitment and the rigors of training to transport, marching and the ordeal of combat"--Page 4 of cover
