Reviews

Valuable reading for anyone with a serious interest in the Second World War. WWW.HISTORYOFWAR.ORG It is to this new, edited collection's great credit that it succeeds in pushing the boundaries of scholarship in this area so significantly. [. . . ] The scope and quality of this book, and its ability to interrelate such an array of complex topics, is extremely impressive. [. . . ] By any measure, then, this book is a highly valuable addition to the literature on this area. --Ben Shepherd, Glasgow Caledonian University This amazing book is a valuable gift to all those interested in the history of Nazi warfare in the east.... It not only updates English-language readers on the most recent developments in German and post-Soviet historiography but also introduces new archival materials and makes important statements bound to produce a powerful impact in various fields. CANADIAN JOURNAL OF HISTORY The volume contains groundbreaking new contributions and valuable overviews of topics that have already been researched. It also has the special advantage of making primary and secondary sources from other countries, especially Russia and Germany, accessible to the English-speaking world. WAR IN HISTORY The collection is an important contribution to [scholarship on] German wartime policies in Russia. --Alexander Prusin, associate professor of history, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology There can be no doubt about the topic's significance. Seventy years after the beginning of "Operation Barbarossa," misconceptions still prevail among the general public as well as among scholars about the nature and consequences of the German attack on the Soviet Union. . . . The editors of the volume attempt to cover a broad spectrum of German policies, decisions, and reactions as they unfold in and beyond what Christopher Browning has called the "fateful months" in the second half of 1941. All contributors to the volume are experts in their own right and represent a group of young scholars that has the potential to shape the future of the field. --Juergen Matthaus, historian A superb collection that materially enhances our understanding of the broader Nazi effort in the East; anyone interested in the Soviet-German conflict or the Holocaust will profit from it. JOURNAL OF MILITARY HISTORY It is most useful to have such expertise bound together in one volume. This is a major work of scholarship. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW
