Abstract:

"Operation Barbarossa - as this campaign is famously called - was arguably the greatest land campaign mankind has ever fought. Hitler named his assault after the twelfth-century Frederick I Barbarossa, an emperor of the First Reich. Although he succeeded in capturing almost 40 per cent of European Russia, Hitler was defeated there. Exploiting newly available Soviet archives, David M Glantz challenges the time-honored explanation that poor weather, bad terrain and Hitler's faulty strategic judgement produced the German defeat. He reveals how and why the Red Army thwarted Hitler's seemingly inexorable progress."--Publisher's description.
