Hitler's Nemesis: The Red Army, 1930-1945 (Hardback)Walter S. Dunn, Jr. (author)
- We can order this
This book traces the development of the Russian Army in reaction to the rise of Hitler. Caught by surprise in 1941, the Red Army had achieved superiority over the Germans by 1943, and had no real need for Western military assistance. The Russians, as this book establishes, won because they had better organization and equipment--i.e., a better and more effective army. By delaying the second front, the Allies gave Stalin the opportunity to enslave Eastern Europe.

"This book is an outstanding basic reference on the formation, organization, structure, and equipment of the Red Army before and during the Second World War. It is clearly and smoothly written, well-organized, and a pleasure to read. A must-read, and should be standard reference work for anyone interested in the history of the Soviet military." - The Military & Naval History Forum
"Hitler's Nemesis is a book that military historians of this titanic struggle will want to read and own. Walter S. Dunn has provided Soviet and German military historians with a well written and well-researched book that will serve as a main reference source on the Red Army of World War II for quite some time to come." - The Journal of Slavic Military Studies
