...its conclusion will have a profound impact on future books written about the Eastern Front in World War II. * Bowling Green Daily News * ...such a thorough and scrupulous account of these battles is long overdue. By closely examining these early battles, the author shows how the weakened Soviet military leadership studied their early mistakes, regained their balance, and struck back with deadly fury.
