German Infantryman Versus Soviet Rifleman uses first-hand accounts, color maps and artwork, and vintage black and white photos to capture the first three battles of the Barbarossa campaign of 1941, and is a recommended pick for any military history collection. It assesses combat performances, considers how the battles set the course of the Eastern Front's events, and creates a powerful survey key to any in-depth military analysis of the times.
James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review
Author David Campbell assesses a battle at Zlobin, the struggle for the destroyed city of Smolensk and the prolonged clash along a dangerously sketched German defensive perimeter at Vas'kovo-Voroshilovo. The book compares the highly skilled and veteran motorized German infantryman and the often ill-trained and poorly equipped Soviet rifleman.
