THE WAR ON THE EASTERN FRONT: The Soviet Union, 1941-1945 - A Photographic History
The RIA-Novosti press agency - now known as Sputnik in the West - has one of the best archives of WWII Soviet photographs. This book selects 360 black and white images to record the Eastern Front and the extraordinary experience of the soldiers and civilians.
Every aspect of the struggle is depicted - the fighting on the front lines and behind the lines, aerial combat, naval warfare, the ordeal of living under German occupation, the war industries and Lend-Lease, and the massive sacrifices made at every level of Soviet society to defeat the Germans.
The photographs and captions take the reader through the entire course of the war, from the Nazi-Soviet Pact and Soviet expansion into Poland, Finland, and the Baltic Republics, through Operation Barbarossa and the German advances of 1941 and 1942, to the momentous battles at Stalingrad and Kursk and the sequence of massive offensives mounted by the Red Army that drove the Wehrmacht back to Berlin.
