Roger Bender, Jost W. Although written before the release of some Soviet archives, Carell’s narrative of war on the Eastern frontin an excellent translation, provides unforgettable coverage of this part of a bloddy conflict.

Please try again later. It may not be a scholarly effort for it doesn’t have Footnotes but Mr Carell wrote in an engaging and informative style. Working for the government at the time, he had access to many documents and knew many influential people that he interviewed after the war. He writes from a German perspective, bestowing much praise on the German soldier but there were times in the book that he would also praise the Russian soldier’s ingenuity and bravery.
The book begins with the opening weeks of Operation Barbarossa and ends with the demise of 6th Army at Stalingrad. In between these two points, the author covers all three Fronts and will include the fighting at Smolensk, Uman, Kiev, Vyazma, Bryansk, Rzhev, Tula, Moscow, the approach to Lake Ilmen and to Leningrad and the attempt to take it. The German pockets near Kolm, Demyansk and the Vlasov affair are covered.
Even the cwrell of Norway is included. The advance on Kharkov, Stalino, Rostov and the battle for the Crimea especially Sevastopol are also given priority. The difficult time in the Caucasus follows.
The book closes with a major section on Operation Blue and the fight for Stalingrad and the failed relief attempt by Hoth to free Paulus.
It further discusses the Russian change in tactics of falling back instead of standing and getting encircled which fooled Hitler into thinking the Russians were finished. There are chapters on the importance of taking the capital in and the debate to advance on Moscow first before Hittler as well as the Soviet superiority of the T34 and KV series tanks. The impact of Siberian reinforcements for the defense of Moscow is also mentioned.
There is coverage on Stalin, Hitler, Manstein, Guderian, Model and many others but to a lesser degree. The author’s “Scorched Earth” is a sequel that finishes the war. The tactical coverage is not as comprehensive as a David Glantz book in that not every battle is described but its sufficient to give the reader a good understanding of the ordeal and accomplishments made by the German Army and the determination of the Russian Army not to give up and to fight on despite prior losses.
The battles mention specific combat units and their commanders and key personnel. The author goes on to describe background information, the battlefield conditions and any other special circumstance that will carll the reader’s understanding and appreciation of the engagement.
Carell also adds individual anecdotal experiences to add the personal touch to the war and weaves the tactical with the personal in a interesting way. There are 36 simple but effective maps. I like hit,er for they were small area maps that covered just the topic currently being discussed.
The map showed the axis of advance, important towns or terrain features. In addition to the maps of the above battles, maps were also provided for Staraya Russa, Klin, Sukhinichi, Vitebsk and Volkhov.
Hitler moves east, Paul Carell: : Books
On the German side troop disposition down to division and on the Russian side down to Army level were presented. Cxrell maps really helped in following the narrative.
There are battlefield photos that were interesting and added to the book.
The book closes with a Bibliography and an Index. I’ve read four of the author’s books and they’re all good but this is his best. I would think most people interested in the war on the Eastern Front and don’t mind the German bias would enjoy hotler learn from this book and is highly recommended.
Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. This was the only East front book when i was growing up. This book explained how Germany lost, and set the standard for stories from individuals as well apul the big picture. Now that the Soviet side is out it is no longer “The Book”. It is still a keeper i think. Incredible but true – A true Soldier’s diary of the Eastern Front. Mobes can perhaps bitler feel sorry for the Soldiers who somehow came under the spell of a Madman with an unmentionable name and perished in the unforgiving Russian Winter.
If you can only buy one book about the Eastern Front in WW2, this is the book to get. It captures the feeling of being there like no other book has. Yes, it is written from the German point of view, but there is little to find from the Soviet point of view for the English reader, because so little of it has been translated from Russian.
One person found this helpful. I got this book to replace the paper back one I wore out reading,I will wear this one out too the real story or the germany on the easten front paul Carell writes other book that are just as good in fact other books ues paul book as referance.
A classic that is hard to find. I have most of Carell’s books on the war, and they are great insight into the German side of the conflict. I am very pleased with my purchase of this book. It is everything that the seller claimed. I was very glad to find this book ppaul I am a history buff. Full of great little stories of individuals that personalizes the narrative and makes it more interesting. See all 25 reviews. There’s a problem loading this menu right cwrell.
