The core of this book is the author's examination of the Soviet army's force structure and mobilization in World War II, and how this linked to the ebb and flow of combat on the Eastern Front. One can't help but come away being impressed by the level of information collected and coalated. However, as has been noted, the editing leaves something to be desired. My favorite gaff is the reference to "Operation Barbarous" at the head of Chapter Five, instead of "Operation Barbarossa;" there are limits to editing by computer spell-checking. Still, if this book probably wasn't worth fifty bucks in hard cover it is worth your time in the economy paperback version. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811734234, Paperback)

When Hitler invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941, the German Army quickly annihilated a major portion of the Red Army. Yet the Red Army rebounded to successfully defend Moscow in late 1941, defeat the Germans at Stalingrad in 1942 and Kursk in 1943, and deliver the deathblow in Belarus in 1944. Dunn examines these 4 battles while explaining how the Soviets lost a third of their prewar army yet returned to beat one of the most highly trained and experienced armies the world has ever seen. A detailed look at how the Soviet Union created more new divisions in a few months than the U.S. did during the entire war. More than 60 tables list losses, tank and weapon production, and unit formation, with special emphasis on rifle and tank divisions and brigades.
