Osprey's third and final volume in the Barbarossa trilogy, this title completes the account of the strategic intricacies of the German campaign against Russia. Detailing the final Nazi push for Moscow, Robert Kirchubel examines the causes behind the German failure, including the inability to re-supply troops or provide reserves, and the lack of decent German winter uniforms and transport.
Full-color artwork, maps and bird's-eye views illustrate the campaign in detail, revealing how the Red Army capitalized on every German weakness in spite of its own flaws.
"Robert Kirchubel's Operation Barbarossa 1941 (3): Army Group Center outlines the command strategies, tactics and battle experiences of the Barbarossa campaign of 1941 and represents the concluding volume in the trilogy on the subject. Military libraries that already have other volumes will find it an essential probe of the causes behind the German failure." -The Bookwatch (February 2008)
"[The book is] enhanced by quality period photographs and the superb illustrations of Peter Dennis, whose work has appeared in countless Osprey editions. In this one his maps, charts and illustrations further enhance an already interesting and inciteful edition. It is a book that I found to be interesting and eye-opening. I know you will as well and can highly recommend it to you." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (August 2007)
