- by R.H. Stolfi



"Stolfi makes an excellent case...His book is a work of scholarship, backed to the hilt by contemporary sources."--Rapport If you believe most experts, Germany's chances of winning World War II effectively ended with their invasion of Soviet Russia in June 1941. They claim that Russia was simply too vast, its army too huge, its weather too forboding. ...In this intriguing book, R.H.S. Stolfi, Professor Emeritus of Modern European History at the Naval Postgraduate School, offers a fascinating new hypothesis: the German Army had the men, the materials, and the generalship to achieve a complete and total victory in the East by October 1941. It was Adolf Hitler's inability to leave the World War I siege mentality behind or to fully understand blitzkrieg tactics that cost his army its momentum toward Moscow and doomed Operation Barbarossa. ...Stolfi looks at the battle for Russia as it might have been, backed by original Wehrmacht operational records and other documentation, using detailed overlay maps to illustrate that distance was not a major reason for defeat. He shows how the Germans could have captured Moscow and the transportation hub of Gorky to effectively throttle Soviet re-mobilization. A truly fascinating "what-if" scenario!

D-Day, 6 June 1944, saw the largest amphibious landing operation in history. From ports and harbors on the southern coast of England, an armada of troopships and landing craft launched the Allied return to mainland Europe. This assault was preceded by airborne landings at key sites and accompanied by massive air support. Stephen Badsey provides a concise account of "Operation Overlord", from the fiercely contested landings, to the struggle to capture Caen, the "Cobra" offensive and the dramatic pursuit of the Germans to the Seine River.

The role of Allied naval forces in World I War 11 was decisive. The invasion of Europe in 1944 could only have been made possible by the maintenance of a continuing flow of food and war materiel across the Atlantic. Germany almost won the Battle of the Atlantic with the U-Boat campaign by March 1943. If the flow of goods to Britain had been cut off, the opening of a second front in Europe would have been impossible. But the convoys, destroyer escorts, and cruisers of the Royal Navy and the US Navy won out, making the amphibious assault on Normandy possible. To an even greater extent, in the war in the Pacific the American Navy, having stopped the Imperial Japanese Navy at the battles of the Coral Sea and Midway, slowly and inexorably, through naval and aerial actions and amphibious assaults, broke through the ring of islands forming the defense perimeter of Japan. Once the Philippine campaign had been launched the attack on the Japanese home islands was possible, an attack only halted after the effects of two atomic bombs forced Japan to surrender. In Navies of World War 2 - An Illustrated History, Antony Preston, a distinguished naval historian, brilliantly and dramatically tells the story of the ships, weapons, and men that stopped the advance of the Axis powers and then destroyed them, in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Mediterranean theatres of World War 2.
