    One thought on “Total War: From Stalingrad to Berlin”

    1. If you think all the epic stories from WWII have been told, Mr Jones gives you a small sample of a vast repository of tragic stories from the eastern front in Total War From Stalingrad to Berlin I think it is fair to say, until recently, the western view of the eastern front probably considers the 2 theatres of war to be roughly equal in ferocity I remember being skeptical about the claims of the Great Patriotic War sacrifices because the Soviets always lied or exaggerated But now I am coming to [...]

    2. This book did a good job portraying the human side to the Red Army I ve read a decent amount of WWII literature, but most of it from the perspectives of people from other countries the US, Great Britain, France, New Zealand, Germany I haven t seen as much out there from the Soviet perspective, not in English I suspect that has to do with the closed nature of the USSR than with lack of effort by scholars This book used diaries, letters, and interviews to show what individual soldiers were thinki [...]

    3. In some ways this book reminds me of Timothy Snyder s Bloodlands Europe Between Hitler and Stalin A very difficult read because of the subject matter, but well worth the time it takes to read it This is a fairly short, appox 300 pgs, look at the war on the Eastern front from Stalingrad thru to the fall of Berlin While it is mainly told from the Soviet side, Mr Jones uses both Soviet and German sources to weave a very enlightening tale of the brutality of the Great Patriotic War He details the at [...]

    4. Looking through the books I ve read I realized I ve read two other Michael Jones books, Leningrad State of Siege and The Retreat Hitler s First Defeat I enjoyed both of these books So it should be no surprise that I enjoyed reading Total War From Stalingrad to Berlin Like Michael Jones other books the author takes a look at the humanistic element of war on the Eastern Front during WWII This time capturing the Russian impressions and emotions fighting the Nazi war machine from Stalingrad to the s [...]

    5. La guerra es brutalidad, no se enga en G nero Ensayo.Lo que nos cuenta Con el subt tulo Con el ej rcito sovi tico de Stalingrado a Berl n y con un breve repaso previo de lo que sucedi desde la invasi n alemana de la URSS hasta la lucha callejera en la ciudad a orillas del Volga, acercamiento a la experiencia de los militares sovi ticos y del desarrollo de las hostilidades en el Frente Oriental para que la URSS se haga con la iniciativa estrat gica en la Segunda Guerra Mundial Kursk y el posterio [...]

    6. Michael Jones traduz neste livro algumas das batalhas mais sangrentas da II Guerra Mundial, a forma dura como descreve Auschwitz choca o leitor, mas esse um objectivo do escritor que real a de uma forma muita eficaz as barbaridades praticadas quer pelo ex rcito sovi tico quer pelos nazis embora estes ltimos numa escala inigual vel O caminho de Estalinegrado a Berlim fica manchado por milh es de mortes Para quem se interessa pela Segunda Guerra Mundial esta uma leitura obrigat ria e que em muito [...]

    7. This account of the WWII invasion of Russia by Germany and the fight back and eventual defeat of the Germans was full of stories of horrifying brutality by the German army and equally vicious atrocities carried out the Russian army but was written in such a way switching between the big picture and individual soldiers stories that it was captivating.I thought this was an outstanding book and definitely worth reading if you are interested in WWII.

    8. The last pages about the Soviet army taking the Reichstag and the ex soldier commenting what was the worst for him just makes worthy all the reading.Maybe the book is not for people that already knows a lot about WWII but it is a great book for new comers or people who want to know from the Soviet side of the war.

    9. The undeniable outcome of this book is that war erupts unprecedented acts of humans We can only be grateful for living now at these times of peace.
