The photographs are the main backbone of the book although the text is very informative especially the excerpts from the "Taschenbuch für den Winterkrieg" (Paperback for the Winter War}.
The photographs show the extremely harsh conditions the German army had to face during Operation Barbarossa with the weather making it a logistics nightmare.
The troops only started to get decent winter clothing in late 1941 and there was never adequate supplies, ammunition, food or clothing.
As usual for the Images of War series, some stunning photographs.
