Operation Barbarossa, 1941 by Robert Kirchubel

Book Description

Of the German Army Groups that attacked Soviet Russia, Von Leeb's Army Group North, tasked with seizing the Baltic States and Leningrad, was the smallest and weakest. Fortunately, General Kuznetzov's Northwestern Front was in an even weaker state. When Army Group North attacked on 22 June, it soon smashed through the Dvina River Line, and the Stalin Line, and flooded into Latvia. Despite brave counterattacks and defense by the Soviet forces, the Germans pressed on towards Leningrad, which by 9 September was encircled. This book examines the German offensive, and also the courageous Soviet attempts to halt the German spearhead, defending every possible line against overwhelming odds.

Atlas of the Eastern Front by Robert Kirchubel Atlas of the Eastern Front, Hardback (November 2015)

The Eastern Front was the most significant theatre of World War II. Here the bulk of the Wehrmacht was committed and eventually shattered by the Red Army in a campaign of unmatched intensity. With detailed pieces of cartography, this book explains the fighting and physical challenges faced by Axis and Soviet forces alike.

Operation Barbarossa by Robert Kirchubel Operation Barbarossa, Hardback (August 2013)

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.
