 Operation Typhoon - The Assault on Moscow 1941

ISBN : 9781612006710

Casemate Illustrated - Casemate UK




Operation Barbarossa initially went very well for the German High Command and by the end of September 1941 they turned their attentions to the main prize of Moscow. It was hoped that by capturing Moscow this would end the war in the East.  On paper the Germans it would seem had far more men and equipment on hand to accomplish this against that the Soviets had to defend with. However like many areas of warfare this initial assessment would not help them. Marshal Zhukov had now begun to get more reinforcements and supplies. The Germans on the other had were now at the end of a long supply line. The Russians were also prepared to fight to death to defend their capital something the Germans may have under estimated. 




This book in the Casemate Illustrated series combines text, pictures, and maps to bring us the Germans Assault on Moscow and the Russians defence. The book goes into details of the planning, and execution of their mission, and subsequent actions until they the Germans withdrew. There are profiles of the tanks, vehicles and aircraft which took part. The book is A5 in format, 128 pages long and contains many contemporary photographs.






If you're interested in the war in the east, and where the Germans were finally stopped then this is a good read.


Highly Recommended.
