Operation Barbarossa 1941
Army Group South Pt. 1
Operation Barbarossa 1941 by Robert Kirchubel
Book DescriptionGermany's surprise assault on the Soviet Union in 1941, Operation Barbarossa, aimed at nothing less than complete destruction. Hitler saw this as the answer to establishing 'Lebensraum' for the German people in the East. The Soviets believed that a German attack would take place in the Ukraine. As such, Germany faced the Soviet Southwestern and Southern Fronts, containing many of the best equipped, trained and commanded units in the Soviet order. Nevertheless German superiority began to tell and the Soviet Army was encircled and destroyed at Uman. By the beginning of October 1941 it appeared that the Red Army was in the final stages of collapse and nothing could stop the German juggernaut.

When Hitler ordered the start of Operation Barbarossa, millions of German soldiers flooded into Russia, believing that their rapid blitzkrieg tactics would result in a victory similar to the ones enjoyed by the Wehrmacht over Poland and France. This book examines how the failure of the invasion contributed to the final defeat of Nazi Germany.
