The illustrated history of Germany's Eastern European campaign documents a four-year struggle of epic proportions, beginning with Operation Barbarossa-Germany's surprise attack on the Soviet Union in June 1941-and ending with the fall of Berlin in 1945. A year-by-year history, along with archival photography and color maps and drawings, dissect SS tactics along the 2,000-mile front, while illustrating the strategies and comparing German weaponry and equipment with that of the Red Army. Major events like the siege of Leningrad, the trek to Moscow in the dead of winter, the Soviet push to Berlin, and more are all examined in detail, as are leading figures in the campaign. An essential and complete look at the eastern half of Nazi Germany's flawed two-front strategy. '
