Publisher: Neue Paradies Verlag/Prairie Books; October 1994
Dimensions (in inches): 1 x 9 x 6
The German invasion of Russia in June 1941 began one
of the most savage conflicts in all of human history, much of which,
even today, remains almost entirely unknown to the outside world.
Western readers are familiar with the name of Stalingrad, but few
are familiar with the names of other battles of equally Homeric
proportionsDemyansk, Cherkassy, the Volkhov River, to name
only a few. Schneider confronts the mystery of the Russian Front
in fiction so close to historical detail that even the most ardent
student of the time will be satisfied.
These highly detailed accounts
are told from the points of view of the Waffen-SS, the German
Landsers, Soviet fighter pilots, Danish SS volunteers, and others.
You see close-up views of Tiger Abteilung 502 at Lake Ladoga, Arctic
fighting in Finland, partisan hunting in the Pripyat Marshes, SS
armored battles at Charkow and in the Narew bridgehead.
from the Introduction
. . . in the West, and particularly in America, the war
in Russia remains even today almost entirely unknown. I think it
is not an exaggeration to say that for Americans the Russo-German
War is the single most under-reported event of modern times.
From the Book Jacket
No, dear reader, these are no supernatural tales of horror.
No need. The horror of these tales arises from one of the most terrible
wars ever fought. It was the biggest armed conflict of all time,
fought with a savagery that may have been equalled during other
dark periods in history, but certainly never surpassed.
The author has spent many years studying the Russo-German
War. Even afficionados of the period are often still discovering
new horrors from the war, new details from the seemingly endless
battles. These stories are fiction, but the close attention to historical
detail will hopefully suit even the most ardent student of the time.
These then are tales of the SS, of the Wermacht and
the Red Army, of the partisans, of the great armored battles; of
coolness under fire, of savagery, of utter degradation; tales from
the trackless forests and steppes of the Russian wilderness, otherwise
know as the Eastern Front. . . .
Eastern Front Books
Fascinating new release containing fictionalized first-person
accounts and small unit actions based on fact from the Russian Front.
These stories help illustrate the bewilderment and horror experienced
by German soldiers as they entered into bitter combat in a dark
and largely unknown country.
