Title: THE BATTLE FOR MOSCOW 1941-1942

About this title

Synopsis:

A German capture of Moscow in 1941 would have knocked Russia out of the war; a riveting narrative of this crucial battle by a British officer with a deep knowledge of the East European sources.

Review:

When Germany invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941, it seemed as thought the hopes and fears of both dictators were correct. Entire Soviet armies disintegrated before the military skill of the Germans. Three million prisoners were taken in the first six weeks. By early October, the Germans were on open roads to Moscow and the Soviet government had already begun to evacuate to the interior. The course of human civilization has turned on the outcome of a select few climactic battles throughout history, but never more so than when Stalin's enigmatic Soviet Union desperately rallied its resources to stave off Hitler's armies in the "Battle for Moscow". Albert Seaton captures the tension and excitement of one of the most harrowing events in history. From the drama in the command posts to the plight of the infantry and armor in the mud and snow, The Battle For Moscow illuminates the titanic struggle which was the pivotal battle of World War II. Riveting reading from the very first page, The Battle For Moscow is a kind of "window on the past" and superb military history. -- Midwest Book Review
