Author: Richard Overy
It is easy for us in the West - considering the influence of Hollywood - to forget that the brunt of the fighting against the German war machine took place on the Eastern front with the Soviet army taking extremely heavy casualties. Professor Richard Overy tells the story of "The Great Patriotic War", as it was known by the Soviets, from the Nazi-Soviet Pact in 1941 to the fall of Berlin in 1945. The book was produced in conjunction with the TV documentary of the same name and was produced around 1995 with the benefit of Russian Glasnost.
