Walter Dunn reports - for the first time in English - the details of a battle on the Eastern Front that was perhaps the largest of all time and certainly one of the most significant of World War II. Nearly three million soldiers (two million Soviets and almost a million Germans) participated in a campaign in which five Soviet breakthroughs advanced 275 kilometers in two weeks over bad roads and marshy terrain, destroying 50 German divisions and capturing 50,000 German troops - an event celebrated by marching the prisoners of war ignominiously through the streets of Moscow. Hitler would never again have the wherewithal to launch a major offensive in the east. ""Soviet Blitzkrieg"" demonstrates convincingly that by the summer of 1944 the Red Army had mastered the German style of warfare and was capable of turning the tables on the Germans. Using recently declassified Soviet Orders of Battle and his own monumental files of German and Soviet unit histories, Dunn traces each of the Blitzkrieg offensives from the initial breakthrough to stalemate.
