    Hitler invaded Russia in 1941 but the initial successes of Operation Barbarossa turned into a nightmare as a combination of stretched lines, dogged opposition and the Russian winter turned the tide. This collection of rare photographs from the campaign, with detailed accompanying captions, provides an insight into the realities of the fighting, showing the troops, tanks, armaments and battlegrounds. An additional colour section reviews the weapons and uniforms of the Wehrmacht and Red Army soldiers.
