Stalin's Defectors

How Red Army Soldiers became Hitler's Collaborators, 1941-1945

Mark Edele

  • The first systematic study of the phenomenon of frontline defection from the Soviet army to the German army during World War II
  • Shows that most attempts to cross the frontline stemmed from a wish to survive this war, rather than a desire to support Hitler's regime
  • Investigates the extent, the context, the scenarios, the reasons, the aftermath, and the historiography of Soviet frontline defection
  • Combines social, cultural, and military history with the history of migration, historiography, and intellectual history
