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.

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.
