Interesting to know more about an important time in our history.

A rather dry writing style made for a heavy going read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 178076829X, Hardcover)

Operation Barbarossa, Hitler’s invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, led to one of the most brutal campaigns of World War II: of the estimated 70 million people who died in the war, over 30 million died on the Eastern Front. Although it has previously been argued that the campaign was a pre-emptive strike, in fact, Hitler had been planning a war of intervention against the USSR ever since he came to power in 1933. Using previously unseen sources, acclaimed military historian Rolf-Dieter Müller shows that Hitler and the Wehrmacht had begun to negotiate with Poland and had even considered an alliance with Japan soon after taking power. Despite the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, at the declaration of war in September 1939, military engagement with the Red Army was still a very real and imminent possibility. In Enemy in the East, Müller takes us behind the scenes of the Wehrmacht High Command, providing a fascinating insight into a lesser known story of World War II.
