Scritto poco dopo la fine del secondo conflitto mondiale descrive le tattiche adottate sia dalle unità corazzate tedesche che sovietiche sul fronte dell’est. Raus, comandante della 6° Divisione Panzer partecipò a numerose battaglie e fu tra i primi a condurre una “guerra lampo” contro le unità sovietiche, rivela alcune tattiche segrete impiegate durante i primi mesi dell’operazione Barbarossa.
General Erhard Raus was one of the German Army's finest panzer generals and a leading exponent of blitzkrieg in the east. German panzers were witnesses to the incredible onslaught that was the first few months of Barbarossa, then the gradual strengthening of Russian resistance, counterattack and, ultimately, the long and drawn-out German retreat. Raus and his panzers were tested in every conceivable tactical situation and, inevitably, Raus became highly versed in all aspects of mobilised warfare. This account by Erhard Raus, edited by leading Eastern Front expert Peter G. Tsouras, concentrates on German efforts to relieve Stalingrad. Raus, as commander of 6th Panzer Division, was in the thick of this bitter action, urging his panzers forward in a massive effort to break the Soviet strangle-hold. These journals were orginally written to brief the US Army at the height of the Cold War.
