Russia at War 1941-45, Karpov, Vladimir
4 Karpov, Vladimir Russia at War 1941-45
UK Stanley Paul 1987 Hardcover Very Good/Good Very Good/Good 29cm 
256 crisp pp, 1.5 kilo to post, masses of photos. Fault? upper right corner creased. About the author > Karpov was born in Orenburg, he graduated from the Tashkent Military academy in 1941 when he was also middleweight boxing champion of Uzbekistan. He was repressed in 1941 and transferred to a punishment battalion on the Kalinin Front in 1942. He was rehabilitated due to bravery in the face of the enemy in 1943 and promoted to lieutenant. He was awarded the Hero of the Soviet Union in 1944 for capturing 79 prisoners. After the war, Karpov attended the Frunze Military Academy (1947) and served in Central Asia, retiring as a regimental commander and chief of staff of a division in 1966. Karpov started writing in 1945 and graduated from the Maxim Gorky Literature Institute via a correspondence course in 1954. From 1966 he was editor of the magazine Oktyabr in Uzbekistan and became editor of the magazine Novy Mir between 1981 and 1986. From 1986 to 1991, he was 1st secretary of the USSR Union of Writers. The book > The blurb on the inside flap of the dust cover pretty well sums up the importance of this book: "World War II was won on the Russian Front. It was here that the Germans incurred 80 per cent of their losses, and it was here that they suffered their first serious defeats. The Russian winter, the skill of the army and the endeavors of the people halted the Blitzkrieg forever. But the Soviet Union paid a staggering price for its victory. More than a quarter of the country's property was destroyed. By the end of the war, 25 million people were homeless, 30 million were wounded and 20 million had been killed.... This is not a military history of the war, but an attempt to to tell the story in human terms." & a review >> The photos in this book reflect all aspects of that nation's experiences during World War II. They mesh effectively with the text, which is predictably patriotic but not stridently so. Though there are numerous photos of military history, this is not a military history per se but, rather, an account of a nation under severe stress. Women's roles, for example, are amply recorded. This excellent collection uniquely captures its subject. In its words and photos lurk the character and values of an extraordinary people.

5 Nikolai I. Obryn'ba Red Partisan: The Memoirs of a Soviet Resistance Fighter on the Eastern Front
UK Pen & Sword 2006 Hardcover Very Good Fair to Poor 24cm 
228 crisp pp, 700g packed for post. The author of this excellent book was a very ordinary individual who was just setting out on his career when the Germans invaded Russia in 1941. As a result, he immediately volunteered for service in the Red Army, however when the enemy advanced, it was not long before he was taken prisoner. In this volume , he tells of the brutality of the invader and recalls horrors and atrocious conditions in their prison camps and his subsequent struggle for survival as he escaped and later fought with the partisans behind the German lines in Belorussia. Of course, many volumes have already been written about the campaign on the Eastern Front and both the German and Russian armies, however this is an uncompromising account of the human side of the conflict and life in the Red Army and as the readable text is supported with some excellent black and white photographs. Faults? something has caught the dj & it has a smallish ruffled hole, hence low price for this highly readable hardcover.

7 Tsouras, Peter G The Great Patriotic War An illustrated history of total war: the Soviet Union and Germany 1941 - 1945
UK BCA 1992 Hardcover Excellent Very Good 30cm 
255pp & heading towards 1.5 kg packed to post. An illustrated history of total war: the Soviet Union and Germany 1941 - 1945 review/synopsis > The German invasion in 1941 led to a series of staggering defeats for the Russians. In the first five months of fighting, the Soviets lost about four million men, amounting to 80 per cent of the total strength of the ground forces at the time of the outbreak of the war. Yet the Red Army managed to hold on. The Soviets had been steadily growing throughout in capability and effectiveness, and after the smashing of the German offensive at the battle of the Kursk salient, they were never again seriously checked, advancing to the ruins of Berlin itself. and >> WWII the eastern theater, the colossal war between Natzi Germany and Soviet Russia where 2 out of every 3 German combatants fought and 20 million Russians died. Yet it can be very hard to find a good book about it in English and usually these tend to be writen with a German prespective. Well this book is a lot different, it focuses on the war from a Russian standpoint. Lt. Col. Peter G. Tsouras, USAR is a military historian who recently retired from the Defense Intelligence Agency, where he served as a senior intelligence officer. He also served at the National Ground Intelligence Agency (NGIC) and with the 1st Battalion, 64th Armor, in Germany. Tsouras is the author or editor of twenty-two books on current military operations, military history, and alternate history. Book's consulting editor is Vladimir Fiodorovich Grib.

8 Ure, John The Cossacks
UK Constable and Company 1999 Hardcover Excellent Very Good/Good 24 Cm 
256 crisp pp, 2 illustrated sections, (pics & maps) 800g packed to post. The word "Cossack" conjures up different images to different people. To some, these ruthless riders from the steppes of Asia are the romantic embodiment of dash and daring; to others, they are horsemen from hell - alternately rebels against the Romanovs and vicious instruments of Tsarist repression. Ure examines of the Cossacks from the time of Ivan the Terrible, factional revolt of the Volga Stenka Razin, imperialist use of the Cossacks for the Tsar. Ure recalls their actions in Napoleon's retreat from Moscow and their struggled against the British Raj in Central Asia. Further they suffer at Stalin's hands & on to their post-communist renewal.

10 Wieder, Joachim and von Einsiedel, Heinrich Graf. Translated by Helmut Bogler Stalingrad: Memories and Reassessments
UK Arms and Armour Press 1993 Hardcover Excellent Fair 24 Cm 
320pp, 700g packed to post - faults? dj has a sunned L shape, book o/w in great order. Stalingrad: Memories and Reassessments >>> Hitler's greatest blunder, many experts agree, was his attempt to conquer Stalingrad and deny Russia the Volga River as a trade route. The most famous analysis of these ill-fated events, translated into English for the first time, features new revisions. Much more than a routine account of battle, here is a stunning review of the motivations, misplaced principles, and misguided claims that led to one of the most disastrous defeats in history. Reviews>>> I would highly recommend this book. Of 300,000 German soldiers trapped in the Stalingrad pocket only 91,000 were alive when they were finally overun by the Russians. Of these only 5000 made in back to Germany years after the war ended. The author was one of those survivors, who at the time was a junior officer.
