The final volume in the "Barbarossa" trilogy, this title completes the account of the strategic intricacies of the German campaign against Russia. Robert Kirchubel examines the causes behind the German failure, including the inability to resupply troops or provide reserves, as well as the lack of decent German winter uniforms and transport. Full-colour artwork, maps and bird's-eye-views illustrate the campaign in detail, revealing how, despite lapses and flaws in Soviet defences, the Red Army was able to capitalize on every German weakness.

Review quote

"Robert Kirchubel's Operation Barbarossa 1941 (3): Army Group Center outlines the command strategies, tactics and battle experiences of the Barbarossa campaign of 1941 and represents the concluding volume in the trilogy on the subject. Military libraries that already have other volumes will find it an essential probe of the causes behind the German failure." --The Bookwatch (February 2008)

"[The book is] enhanced by quality period photographs and the superb illustrations of Peter Dennis, whose work has appeared in countless Osprey editions. In this one his maps, charts and illustrations further enhance an already interesting and inciteful edition. It is a book that I found to be interesting and eye-opening. I know you will as well and can highly recommend it to you." --Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (August 2007)
