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

96 editions published between 1965 and 2005 in 6 languages and held by 2,014 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 had suffered a loss of seven million lives. Alan Clark's incisive analysis succeeds in explaining how a fighting force that in one two-month period lost two million men was nevertheless able to rally to defeat the Wehrmacht."--Page 4 of cover

"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. ... Though in no sense a comment upon United States policy, The Lion Heart nonetheless exposes in strong narrative the corruption - in some instances, the beastialities - of the Vietnamese war and, by extension, of all wars in our time."
