The Eastern Front 1941-43

A Ladybird Expert Book


Formats & editions


An accessible, authoritative and entertaining introduction to The Eastern Front for adult readers.

Part of the new Ladybird Expert series, The Eastern Front 1941-1944, is a clear, simple and entertaining introduction to the brutal confrontation between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union along a 1,200 mile front.

Historian, author and broadcaster James Holland draws on the latest research and interviews with participants to bring colour, detail and a fresh perspective to the story of the largest military campaign in history.

Inside, you'll discover how tactics, organisation and new technologies were brought to bear, about the different challenges faced by both the Axis and the Allies, and, above all, the skill, bravery and endurance of those engaged in a contest that was of critical importance to the outcome of the war.
