5 out of 5 (1 rating)


The classic! This new edition of Paul Carrell's eastern front study picks up where Hitler Moves East left off.

Beginning with the battle of Kursk in July 1943, Carell traverses the vast expanse of the Russian War, from the siege of Leningrad and the fierce battles of the norther front, to the fourth battle of Kharkov, and the evacuation of the Crimea, a withdrawal forbidden by Hitler.

The book ends in June of 1944 when the Soviet Armies reach the East Prussian frontier.

Hundreds of photographs, situation and campaign maps, complete index, and comprehensive bibliography, add to this impressive account.

This edition includes a new preface by the author.

Review by

Carell brings the reader the war on the Eastern Front through the eyes of Germans like no other author. Fantastic first-hand account as told by the people who were there. If you are looking for an apologetic German account of the war then look elsewhere. If you want to know what service in the German military was like then this is a must read.
