The Road to Stalingrad: Stalin's War With Germany, Volume 1
By John Erickson
Harper & Row, 1975, 594 pp

An eminent British expert on the Soviet military carries the story of the war on the eastern front from its origins to the surrounding of General Paulus' army in late 1942. Drawing on a great mass of material from both sides, he looks at the campaign primarily from the Soviet side. Heavy with detail, but still a model of military history.
