Moscow to Stalingrad : decision in the east by Earl F Ziemke( Book )

7 editions published between 1987 and 2006 in English and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second of a three-volume history of the German-Soviet conflict in World War II. In this volume, the German and Soviet forces initially confront each other on the approaches to Moscow, Leningrad, and Rostov in the late-1941 battles that produced the first major German setbacks of the war and gave the Soviet troops their first tastes of success. Later, the pendulum swings to the Germans' side, and their armies race across the Ukraine and into the Caucasus during the summer of 1942. In the course of a year, the Soviet Command goes from offensive to defensive and, finally, at Stalingrad, decisively to the offensive--meanwhile, frequently in desperate circumstances, building the strength and proficiency that will enable it to mount the relentless thrusts of the succeeding years. --Foreword

Portrait of an army by Center of Military History( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Army Art Collection has over 10,000 pieces of art which, taken together, provide a wide-ranging visual record of the activities of the U.S. Army, with a clear emphasis on the human dimension of a soldier's life, both in peacetime and in war. Portrait of an Army is a representative selection of work from that collection. The focus of the volume, like that of the artists themselves, is on the composite reality captured in each image, and on the interplay between related images, regardless of chronology. The result is a portrait in its truest sense: a distilling of experience, as remembered in selected, telling details. But it is also a collective portrait, a commemoration of those successive generations of men and women who have served the Army and their country so well. --from publisher's description
