Thunder on the Dnepr : Zhukov-Stalin and the defeat of Hitler's Blitzkrieg by Bryan I Fugate( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It has long been thought that the failure of Germany to defeat Russia in 1941 was due primarily to interference in the plans and operations of the German armed forces by Adolf Hitler, and ultimately, that it was Field Marshal "Winter" and General "Mud" that stopped Army Group Center at the gates of Moscow. Certainly, the STAVKA (Soviet High Command) and the Red Army had little or nothing to do with it
Alien wars : the Soviet Union's aggressions against the world, 1919 to 1989 by Oleg L Sarin( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, researched from previously secret archives, details the Soviets' military follies, from revolutionary times when Ukraine was added to the new USSR to the final disaster of Afghanistan. In rapid order, the authors tell of Stalin's decision to become a participant in the Spanish Civil War, the overt and stupid aggression against tiny Finland, the immoral pact with Hitler that led to the German/Soviet dismemberment of Poland, the joint North Korean and Soviet attack on South Korea in 1950, her participation in the second and third Vietnam wars, the ignoble adventures in the Middle East and Africa, her arming of Cuba that almost resulted in World War III, the brutal suppression of nationalist reforms in Hungary and Czechoslovakia, and the final blow against the Afghan people in 1979

Thunder on the Dneper : the end of the Blitzkrieg era, summer, 1941 by Bryan Irven Fugate( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in Czech and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If there is any lesson to be learned from studying the German efforts at developing a plan for war against the Soviet Union, it is that the absence of harmony among the military and political leaders, and among the various military branches as well, produced a situation where the formulation of a smoothly coordinated program of action was quite impossible. It would be easy to single out one or more individuals ... as blameworthy for this regrettable circumstance, but to do so would be an oversimplification. The entire social, political, economic and military system of the Third Reich can be viewed as an assortment of personal empires and spheres of influence which existed in a state of eternal and sometimes ferocious competition with one another. The Army High Command was one of many organizations which had to struggle for a measure of autonomy against the growing spheres of interest of Himmler, G?ring and Borsman. The Army High Command was also pitted in a struggle against a rival military organization, the Armed Forces High Command, which rightly or wrongly was regarded merely as an extension of Hitler's ego ... The real test of the wisdom and good sense of the Army High Command and its leaders would come on the banks of the Dnepr, Dvina and Desna in the summer of 1941, at Smolensk, Yelnia and Kiev. By then enough would be known about the enemy and his tactics for them to make an honest appraisal of a situation which had proven to be a good deal more complex and perilous then they had originally conceived. By drawing the correct conclusions after reaching the Dnepr, the Germany Army could have been spared a catastrophe for another year. Precious time could have been won for gearing the country and its economy for total war, but this was not to be"--Page 50-52
