Editorial Reviews

Review

"This valuable study reveals the ideological dimensions of Hitler's five-week conquest of Poland in September 1939. Rossino argues that 'despite its brevity, the historical importance of the Polish campaign cannot be overestimated.' . . . With clear, vigorous prose and a significant thesis, Rossino's study gives us a new perspective on the German invasion of Poland as a 'dress rehearsal' for yet greater, perfected barbarities to come."--Central European History

"An invaluable introduction to a highly significant phase in National Socialist Germany's prosecution of its ideological policies during the Second World War. Specialists and novices alike will profit greatly from Rossino's work."--Journal of Modern History

"A signal contribution to Western knowledge about [the] German genocidal campaign in Poland."--Polish Review

"Haunting in its graphic descriptions and photographs of atrocities, [this] book deserves a wide audience."--International History Review

"Deeply researched and carefully crafted. . . . The amazing photographs that accompany his narrative recapture the sheer horror of the war's very first days."--Slavic Review

"Adds profoundly to the debate over the Wehrmacht's complicity in war crimes and crimes against humanity."--History: Reviews of New Books

"A powerful book and an apt documentation of an ethnic war of extreme brutality. . . . Essential reading."--Library Journal

"A significant contribution to our understanding of World War II."--American Historical Review

"An excellent and powerfully written book that every student of the war, the Holocaust, and Nazi Germany will have to read."--Omer Bartov, author of Mirrors of Destruction: War, Genocide, and Modern Identity

"Up to now, Operation Tannenberg, the Nazi assault on Poland, has been overshadowed by the enormous literature on Operation Barbarossa. Rossino's book more than corrects that imbalance with a gripping account that conveys a real feel for those grim times and places."--Michael Burleigh, author of The Third Reich: A New History

"Rossino's fine study provides the 'missing link' between the traditional German expansionism of World War I and the 'war of annihilation' against the Soviet Union in 1941."--Christopher Browning, author of Ordinary Men: Reserve Police Battalion 101 and the Final Solution in Poland

"An important work for anyone who wants to understand the war and the Wehrmacht's evolving relationship with National Socialism."--Geoffrey P. Megargee, author of Inside Hitler's High Command
