This critical examination of the final Soviet strategic offensive operation during World War II seeks to chip away at two generally inaccurate pictures many Westerners have of the war. Specifically, Westerners seem to think that only geography, climate, and sheer numbers negated German military skill and competency on the eastern front, a view that relegates Soviet military accomplishments to oblivion.


'…two compelling books on an overlooked but important campaign. For those interested in the Pacific War or the Soviet Experience in World War II, or the Russian military in general, these books are an absolute revelation.' - World War II
