"The launch of Operation Typhoon heralded the opening of one of the biggest German offensives of World War II. Indeed it is surpassed in scale only by the German operations to invade France and the Low Countries in May 1940 (Case Yellow) and the Soviet Union itself in June 1941 (Operation Barbarossa). Although the fighting on the Eastern Front is arguably best known for Hitler's 1942 offensive to reach and conquer the oil fields of southern Russia (Case Blue), culminating in the battle for Stalingrad, Army Group South's 1942 summer offensive involved only half the number of German troops employed for Operation Typhoon"--

In just four weeks in the summer of 1941 the German Wehrmacht wrought unprecedented destruction on four Soviet armies, conquering central Ukraine and killing or capturing three quarters of a million men. This was the Battle of Kiev - one of the largest and most decisive battles of World War II and, for Hitler and Stalin, a battle of crucial importance. In this book, David Stahel charts the battle's dramatic course and aftermath, uncovering the irreplaceable losses suffered by Germany's 'panzer groups' despite their battlefield gains, and the implications of these losses for the German war effort. He illuminates the inner workings of the German army as well as the experiences of ordinary soldiers, showing that with the Russian winter looming and Soviet resistance still unbroken, victory came at huge cost and confirmed the turning point in Germany's war in the East.

For decades after 1945, it was generally believed that the German army, professional and morally decent, had largely stood apart from the SS, Gestapo, and other corps of the Nazi machine. Ben Shepherd draws on a wealth of primary sources and recent scholarship to convey a much darker, more complex picture. For the first time, the German army is examined throughout the Second World War, across all combat theaters and occupied regions, and from multiple perspectives: its battle performance, social composition, relationship with the Nazi state, and involvement in war crimes and military occupation. This was a true people’s army, drawn from across German society and reflecting that society as it existed under the Nazis. Without the army and its conquests abroad, Shepherd explains, the Nazi regime could not have perpetrated its crimes against Jews, prisoners of war, and civilians in occupied countries. The author examines how the army was complicit in these crimes and why some soldiers, units, and higher commands were more complicit than others. Shepherd also reveals the reasons for the army’s early battlefield successes and its mounting defeats up to 1945, the latter due not only to Allied superiority and Hitler’s mismanagement as commander-in-chief, but also to the failings—moral, political, economic, strategic, and operational—of the army’s own leadership.

"This study exploits a wealth of Soviet and German archival materials, including the combat orders and operational records of the German OKW, OKH, army groups, and armies of the Soviet Stavka, the Red Army General Staff, the Western Main Direction Command, the Western, Central, Reserve, and Briansk fronts, and their subordinate armies to present a detailed mosaic and definitive account of what took place, why and how during the prolonged and complex battles in the Smolensk region from 10 July through 10 September 1941 ... The series will consist of a detailed two-volume chronological narrative of the course of operations, accompanied by a third volume, containing an extensive collection of specific orders and reports translated verbatim from Russian, and a fourth (atlas) volume containing newly-commissioned colour maps"--Dust jacket.

Volume 3, the Documentary Companion to Barbarossa Derailed, contains the documentary evidence for the two volumes of narrative. In addition to key Führer Directives issued by Adolf Hitler to provide direction to his forces during the Barbarossa Campaign, as well as vital orders issued by German Army Group Center, this book includes the daily operational summaries of the participating Soviet fronts, armies, and some divisions and many if not most of the orders and reports issued by the struggling Soviet armies. Precise translations illustrate not only the capabilities and states-of-mind of key Soviet commanders as they dealt with crisis after crisis but also the characteristics (such as aggressiveness, passivity, brutality, and despair) of their varied styles of command. They also demonstrate how an army, which lost the bulk of its experienced troops during the first several months of the campaign, attempted to use its operational directives and tactical orders to educate its soldiers and officers in the basics of waging war in the midst of active and bloody operations.

In welchem Verhältnis stehen die deutschen Massenverbrechen zur Kriegführung und Hungerpolitik während des Zweiten Weltkriegs? Von den etwa 13 Millionen Opfern deutscher Massenverbrechen zwischen 1933 und 1945 starben die meisten während des Zweiten Weltkrieges. Der regionale Schwerpunkt dieser Verbrechen lag in Osteuropa. Der Band fragt nach dem Verhältnis von Kriegführung und Massenverbrechen. Da ein wesentlicher Teil dieser Verbrechen während des Krieges eng mit Hunger und selektiver Nahrungsmittelpolitik verknüpft war, wird der Faktor Hunger in diesem Band besonders betont.

Mit der ersten sowjetischen Stalin-Biographie nach dem Tod des Diktators von Wolkogonow wurden die Quellen der jüngeren sowjetischen Geschichte endlich der Öffentlichkeit zugänglich gemacht. Zum ersten Mal war es einem Autor möglich, alle vorhandenen Zeugnisse über die Stalin-Zeit auszuwerten. Auf sie gestützt, gelang ihm ein atemberaubendes Porträt. Alle bisherigen Versuche, den Diktator zu charakterisieren, verblassen angesichts der Tatsachen: Die Dokumente aus dem Politbüro, aus dem Exekutivkomitee der Kommunistischen Internationale, aus den Sicherheitsorganen oder aus dem Volkskommissariat für Äußeres sprechen eine erschütternde Sprache. Dimitri Wolkogonows voluminöse Biographie ist ein Schlüsselwerk, das nun endlich wieder zugänglich ist!
