Editorial Reviews

Review

...an outstanding and most comprehensive work on the history and development of the Russian campaign. -- Die Zeit

The great major work is that [this book] provides an excellent introduction to many major scholars and to their perspectives...this is surely a collection that will be of great interest to scholars in the field and an excellent introduction to the numerous issues central to an understanding of the titanic struggle on the Eastern Front, World War IIs main theater of military operations. Students, both graduate and undergraduate, will find this a most helpful book to turn to time and time again -- Journal of Military Studies

Thirty five contributors to this book are listed. Reading through them, their qualifications and their publications tells you that this is a serious book. It is not for casual reader, but clearly aimed at a person wanting to delve deeply into the subject...The editor had brought together well researched articles and put them in a five part book dealing with the German-Soviet policy, strategy, and warfare...If you are researching or reading about Germany and the Soviet Union, you need this book. -- Crown Imperial

Peace to War might look like War and Peace but its size and title belies its depth and breadth. Clearly, with a subject as large as German-Soviet relations 1939-1941, there is much it cannot cover in the detail but the essays are comprehensive, interesting and stimulating, generating a quest for further knowledge. It seems a tad pricey but I am thoroughly enjoying the intellectual challenge that is the fundamental component of this book, and I am glad I bought it.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The text is a collection of 35 essays covering the period before and during the great patriotic war. All of the authors are scholars in history with an interesting submssion of Major-General Juri Kirshin who provides the Russian (Soviet) view of the eve of the Great Patriotic war.
What gives the text balance are two essays: "Stalin and Hitler's attack on the Soviet Union" by Gabriel Gorodetsky and "The Soviet Union's offensive preparations in 1941" by Joachim Hoffmann. Both authors give the two sides of the contention that Barbarossa was a pre-emptive strike by Germany.

Each essay is supported by ample references with footnotes. The text is costly but covers a lot of ground. While some may lambast the work of Suvorov's "Ice Breaker", I believe is one of the many volumes (Gorodetsky, Glantz and others) that owe their existance to renewed interest in this area.

So worth the read that it pushed Read and Fisher's "Deadly Embrace" off my shelf.
