“This book will benefit any person carrying out serious research into Hitler's failure to subjugate Russia.” • Crown Imperial

“This serious study is a must for all interested in the history of World War Two.” • British East-West Review

“…one of the best jobs of integrating Russian, German, American and British writing on the subject… most students wishing to write a paper would find everything they need in the way of bibliographical materials by referring to this book.” • Slavic Review


This volume provides a guide to the extensive literature on the war in the East, including largely unknown Soviet writing on the subject. Indispensable for military historians, but also for all scholars who approach this crucial period in world history from a socio-economic or cultural perspective.

Rolf-Dieter Müller is Senior Research Fellow at the Militärgeschichtliches Forschungsamt, Potsdam.

Gerd Ueberschär is Senior Research Fellow at the Military Archives and University of Freiburg.
