On first publication, this uncommonly concise and readable account of Soviet Russia's clash with Nazi Germany utterly changed our understanding of World War II on Germany's Eastern Front, immediately earning its place among top-shelf histories of the world war. Revised and updated to reflect recent Russian and Western scholarship on the subject, much of it the authors' own work, this new edition maintains the 1995 original's distinction as a crucial volume in the history of World War II and of the Soviet Union and the most informed and compelling perspective on one of the greatest military confrontations of all time. In 1941, when Pearl Harbor shattered America's peacetime pretensions, the German blitzkrieg had already blasted the Red Army back to Moscow. Yet, less than four years later, the Soviet hammer-and-sickle flew above the ruins of Berlin, stark symbol of a miraculous comeback that destroyed the Germany Army and put an end to Hitler's imperial designs. In swift and stirring prose, When Titans Clash provides the clearest, most complete account of this epic struggle, especially from the Soviet perspective. Drawing on the massive and unprecedented release of Soviet archival documents in recent decades, David Glantz, one of the world's foremost authorities on the Soviet military, and noted military historian Jonathan House expand and elaborate our picture of the Soviet war effort--a picture sharply different from accounts that emphasize Hitler's failed leadership over Soviet strategy and might. Rafts of newly available official directives, orders, and reports reveal the true nature and extraordinary scale of Soviet military operations as they swept across the one thousand miles from Moscow to Berlin, featuring stubborn defenses and monumental offensives and counteroffensives and ultimately costing the two sides combined a staggering twenty million casualties. Placing the war within its wider context, the authors also make use of recent revelations to clarify further the political, economic, and social issues that influenced and reflected what happened on the battlefield. Their work gives us new insight into Stalin's political motivation and Adolf Hitler's role as warlord, as well as a better understanding of the human and economic costs of the war--for both the Soviet Union and Germany. While incorporating a wealth of new information, When Titans Clashed remains remarkably compact, a tribute to the authors' determination to make this critical chapter in world history as accessible as it is essential.… (mais)

Reconozco un extraño interés por la guerra en el frente oriental de Europa durante la IIGM. La escala de brutalidad, los números involucrados y el sufrimiento escapa a la imaginación. Solo los sucesos que ocurrían más al oriente, en China, podrían eclipsar el drama de Polonia, Ucrania, los países bálticos y todas las personas que vivian entre Berlín y Moscú, en ese tiempo a cargo de dos los tres mayores asesinos de la historia, junto con Mao.

Debe ser el libro más completo con el detalle de las operaciones en el eastern front. Como bien Detalla como fueron los revolucionarios cambios en el mando, estado mayor y técnicas operacionales y tácticas sovieticas las responsables no que Alemania perdiera sino que la URSS ganara.
Interesante que los sovieticos comenzaron con conceptos rígidos, siendo frecuentemente embolsados, pero luego los papeles se invirtieron y los sovieticos aprendieron rápidamente las lecciones, haciendo maniobras dinámicas y retiradas tácticas cuando era necesario. Por el contrario, Hitler comenzó a insistir en defensas estáticas.
Stalin comenzó la guerra desconfiando de su mando y tomando las decisiones, para luego delegar y confiar. Hitler hizo lo contrario.

Glantz es posiblemente el principal autor occidental acerca de la guerra en el frente este y este libro resume las principales conclusiones de sus estudios. ( )

Really well-researched and detailed account of the Soviet side of the Eastern Front. Could have done with a scorecard, or at least a few more maps. Names and units were flying fast and it was difficult to keep up at times. Overall, a terrific addition to this field. ( )

Viewing the English language literature about WWII, the Americans do not leave much room both to the crucial British and Soviet contribution to victory. Great Britain for holding out single-handed in 1940 and the Soviets for absorbing and wearing down the Nazi offensive capability. Victory was mostly paid with Russian blood.

Glantz and House, former US army officers, try to redress the balance. They divide the Eastern Front in three periodes (6/41-11/42; 11/42-12/43; 1/44-5/45). During the first, the Germans were dominant and only their logistical limitations prevented a Soviet defeat. The second period resulted in a standstill while the third period saw a Soviet juggernaut rolling over the crippled German army.

Glantz and House concentrate on military formations and leadership. Readers looking for more human interest (esp. suffering) should consider Werth's classic Russia at War. One difficulty, they solve not so well, is the Soviet custom of calling corps or even division-sized formations armies which results in one German army or corps fighting half a dozen Soviet armies. Readers should also supplement the printed maps with the excellent online West Point Atlas. Overall, a good contribution to a neglected topic. ( )
