⁣Retreat from Moscow: a new history of Germany’s winter campaign, 1941 – 1942. Part One Of Three...


⁣Retreat from Moscow argues that this winter period, rather than a period of further unmitigated disaster and retreat for Army Group Centre (the central Germany military group in the invasion of the USSR), was, in fact, a story of German strategic success.

Facing oblivion at the hands of the Red Army, they managed to withdraw to defensive lines, launch damaging counter-offensives, and emerge in the spring ‘unbroken and best placed to recapture the initiative for another major summer offensive’.

It almost defies imagination, but Army Group Centre actually escaped the winter without losing an army, corps, or division.
