Eastern Front expert Jonathan Trigg provides a comprehensive account of one of the largest single military campaigns in history, Operation Barbarossa – the Nazi invasion of Russia in 1941 – through the eyes of regular German soldiers. Drawing on a wealth of letters and memoirs from the lowliest riflemen to the highest-ranking generals, Trigg comprehensively details Barbarossa from its initial planning stages all the way through to its withering demise mere kilometres from the gates of Moscow. Vividly recounting all the major day-to-day operations, Trigg’s work does not hold back from detailing the various grim aspects of the invasion.
