Operation Typhoon - Hitler's march on Moscow, October 1941

David Stahel

In October 1941, Adolf Hitler launched Operation Typhoon - the German drive to capture Moscow and knock the Soviet Union out of the war. David Stahel's groundbreaking account of Operation Typhoon captures the perspectives of both the German high command and individual soldiers. It reveals that despite success on the battlefield the wider German war effort was in far greater trouble than is often acknowledged. Germany's hopes of final victory relied on the success of the October offensive, but the autumn conditions and the stubborn resistance of the Red Army ensured that the capture of Moscow was anything but certain.
