Dr Craig Luther, author of the highly-acclaimed "Barbarossa Unleashed. The German Blitzkrieg through Central Russia to the Gates of Moscow, June-December 1941," has just completed a new book due for publication early this fall.
The title of the book is: "The First Day of War on the Eastern Front. Germany Invades the Soviet Union, June 22, 1941."
The book addresses the first 21 hours of Operation Barbarossa (the Germans attacked at just after 0300 hours on Sunday, 22 June) in granular detail. It is based on a broad range of both German and Soviet official military records, as well as graphic accounts by participants on both sides. The book is ca. 450 pages, not including 60 b/w photos (many never before published) and 18 maps.
It is now available for purchase at amazon.com or Stackpole Books.
Anyone interested in reading a graphic excerpt from the book is welcome to visit my web/blog site:
Very truly yours,
Dr Craig Luther
