Contains 92 illustrations and 45 maps of the Russian Campaign. A brilliant modern history of the German invasion of Russia to their bloody crushing defeat by the re-invigorated Russian forces at the siege of Stalingrad. During 1942, the Axis advance reached its high tide on all fronts and began to ebb. Nowhere was this more true than on the Eastern Front in the Soviet Union. After receiving a disastrous setback on the approaches to Moscow in the winter of 1941-1942, the German armies recovered sufficiently to embark on a sweeping summer offensive that carried them to the Volga River at Stalingrad and deep into the Caucasus Mountains. The Soviet armies suffered severe defeats in the spring and summer of 1942 but recovered to stop the German advances in October and encircle and begin the destruction of the German Sixth Army at Stalingrad in November and December. This volume describes the course of events from the Soviet December 1941 counteroffensive at Moscow to the Stalingrad offensive in late 1942 with particular attention to the interval from January through October 1942, which has been regarded as a hiatus between the two major battles but which in actuality constituted the period in which the German fortunes slid into irreversible decline and the Soviet forces acquired the means and capabilities that eventually brought them victory. These were the months of decision in the East.… (mer)

Started reading August 22, 2010, and finished reading on September 3, 2010.

This book is the middle book in the three volume series on the German-Soviet conflict during World War II. It focuses on the period between the Soviet counter offensive from Moscow (December 1941) through to the end of the Stalingrad siege (December 1942). It pays particular attention to the period from January to October 1942. It is primarily at the level of Corps, Armies, Army Groups and Theaters. It occasionally covers divisions and smaller units. It seems to be mainly written using the writings (memoirs) of surviving generals.

I am very pleased with the other books that are cited in the various foot notes.

It was well paced, but some of the sentences were overly long. Thankfully there are a lot of maps. In the maps, the use of red ink (or what ever) for the Soviet units would have been a big help at times. In the text, Soviet units are in italics, thankfully. Considering that there were several separate engagements occurring at the same time, I feel that the book flowed quite well. ( )
