David M. Glantz and Jonathan M. House have collaborated on numerous volumes of military history, including The Stalingrad Trilogy and The Battle of Kursk.
Praise for the first edition:
"Now, Western readers can learn for the first time the full extent of the Soviet achievement. Essential reading for anyone wanting to know the true story of how the Red Army snatched victory in 1945 from the jaws of defeat in 1941." Washington Post Book World"This major advance will supplant John Erickson s two massive volumes on the war in the east, The Road to Stalingrad and The Road to Berlin, as the standard reference book for nonspecialists." Foreign Affairs"Simply put, this is the best book yet published on the epic Russo-German War of 1941 1945 and the first written entirely from the Soviet point of view." World War II"Easily the best operational account of the eastern front to appear in the West." American Historical Review"Required reading for all who seek to understand the Second World War and its aftermath."Journal of Military History
