Synopsis:

The full story of this epic battle has never been told because it undermines the sanitized Soviet accounts of the war, which portray Stalin as a military genius. In actuality, Stalins blunders, incompetence, and brutality made it possible for German troops to approach the outskirts of Moscow. But Hitlers blunders--such as sending his troops to attack the Soviet Union without winter uniforms and insisting on an immediate German reign of terror--would soon loom even larger. In the end, Hitlers mistakes trumped Stalins mistakes.
