Operation Barbarossa

The History of a Cataclysm

Jonathan Dimbleby

  • Written with an historian's sense of the big picture and a journalist's sense of narrative.
  • Unfolds the tactical military aspect of Barbarossa but also maps out the strategic decision-making process that led to the invasion in the first place.
  • Vivid, even visceral, the book makes effective use of primary documents--memoirs, autobiographies, letters, and diaries--that illuminate the experiences of men and women both at the front and behind the lines.
