Product Overview

Most military historians have difficulty comprehending the miracle that took place in late 1941 and early 1942 in the Soviet Union. In the summer of 1941, the German Army routed the Red Army as it had routed the Polish, British, French and other armies in 1939, 1940, and early 1941. None had been able to withstand German might more than a few weeks. When Hitler invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941 and his legions quickly overcame the Soviet divisions they met, it appeared to most that Hitler would succeed as he had before. A major portion of the prewar Red Army had been completely annihilated, millions of prisoners taken, and the most populous and developed provinces of the Soviet Union were occupied the Germans and their allies. After the Germans surrounded and captured a huge bag of divisions east of Kiev in September, they were surprised when they encountered a flood of new Red Army divisions when they redirected their intentions on Moscow. In short order the Wehrmacht broke through this line and approached within sight of the outskirts of Moscow only to be surprised by a massive offensive mounted in December by even more new divisions. While other countries had surrendered after losing one army, let alone two, the Soviets came back with a third which sent the Germans reeling to rear. How was this possible?
