Barbarossa : the Russian-German conflict, 1941-45 by Alan Clark( Book )

108 editions published between 1965 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 2,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On June 22, 1941, before dawn, German tanks and guns began firing across the Russian border. It was the beginning of Hitler's Operation Barbarossa, one of the most brutal campaigns in the history of warfare. Four years later, the victorious Red Army has suffered a loss of seven million lives. Alan Clark's analysis explains how a fighting force that in one two-month period lost two million men was nevertheless able to rally to defeat the Wehrmacht. The Barbarossa campaign included some of the greatest episodes in military history: the futile attack on Moscow in the winter of 1941-42, the siege of Stalingrad, the great Russian offensive beginning in 1944 that would lead the Red Army to the historic meeting with the Americans at the Elbe and on to victory in Berlin

"The time is late 1966 and early 1967, and the central character is Jack Lane. An American of 35, Lane volunteers out of warm, if vaguely defined, patriotism to serve as a Special Forces Officer, leaving behind him in Connecticut a thriving real-estate business, a wife and two young sons. ...
