    1. Review reprinted from my review as published at the Michigan War Studies Review:Operation Typhoon is the third in a series of books by David Stahel (Univ. of New South Wales), each exploring the operations of the panzer and motorized formations of German Army Group Center (AGC). It aims, first, to show 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 depended on the success of the October [...]


    2. Typhoon never had a chanceThis is an excellent operational history of the first phase of Operation Typhoon, the Nazi attempt to take Moscow. It is told primarily from the German point of view and is a follow-up to Stahel's excellent book on the battle of Kiev. He has also written books on the opening months of Barbarossa and on the final phase of Typhoon. Most of the action takes place during Oct 1941 and despite massive victories in the first 2 weeks at Viazma and Briansk, which may have cost t [...]


    3. Like Kiev 1941 before it, this book is part operational history, part defense of Stahel's thesis about the causes of Germany's defeat in Russia, rejecting the traditional Western view that Germany's defeat in Russia was the result of Hitler's meddling, the weather, and inexhaustible Russian manpower resources. Stahel contends (among other things) that Germany had no overall strategic concept of how to defeat Russia, and was totally unprepared for the logistic demands that fighting in Russia woul [...]


    4. Stahel continues his history of the war on the Eastern Front and now turns his attention to the German drive to take Moscow. He makes a convincing case that German generals were as much or more at fault for this ill considered drive that was far too late in the year to succeed as Hitler. Stahel also outlines the foolish over promising of the German propaganda machine that would be forever discredited by the failure to win the war before winter. He also begins to give more attention to the horrif [...]


    5. This is a long trudge of a book with little to add to Stahel's work. I understand and accept his premise that Germany's lack of preparation and their hubris about their ability defeated them before they ever set foot in the Soviet Union. This book offers little to that premise fully stated in "Operation Barbarossa". Now, on to the Battle for Moscow.


    6. Very interesting book, but the last half of the book tended to slow down with a lot of the same information that was already presented being gone over again. Overall, a good overview of Operation Typhoon.



    7. Who would have thought that a Kiwi would turn out to be the best Eastern Front historian of the modern era. Superb analysis presented in a very lucid manner.
