1 Seaton, Albert, Col. THE BATTLE FOR MOSCOW.
Sarpedon, New York, 1993, reprint. 
294 pp, 9" H, soft cover. ISBN 096276132X B&w photographs, maps. "When Germany invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941, it seemed as though the hopes and fears of both dictators were correct. Entire Soviet armies disintegrated before the military skill of the Germans. Three million prisoners were taken in the first six weeks. By early October, the Germans were on open roads to Moscow and the Soviet government had already begun to evacuate the interior. The course of human civilization has turned on the outcome of a select few climactic battles throughout history, but never more so than when Stalin's enigmatic Soviet Union desperately rallied its resources to stave off Hitler's armies in the Battle of Moscow. This book captur e s t h e tension and excitement of one of the most harrowing events in history. From the drama in the command posts to the plight of the infantry and armor in the mud and snow, Albert Seaton illuminates the titanic struggle which was the pivotal b at t le o f W ord War II." Interior - clean and tight with no previous owner's marks. Exterior - clean and bright. Near Fine

"By the midsummer of 1943 the Wehrmacht had fallen back behind the Straits of Sicily in the Mediterranean and had begun to build, with fe verish haste, the Atlantic Wall in the west and the East Wall in Russia - in fact to construct their Fortress Europe, with the intention of defending it to the last. Here the author sets out simply and concisely the political, economic an d m i l i t a r y organization of the Third Reich, its strength and its weaknesses. He traces the almost unbelievable chain of events within Germany during the last two years of the Second World War that saw the Fortress liberated or overrun, and t h e wh ol e of t he R eich engulfed, and then inundated, by the invading armies of the allies. This authoritative account is based mainly on German materials, although other language sources, particularly Russian, Italian and Anglo-American, h ave a ls o b een u sed in co mpi ling this intriguing narrative."
