This is a very good history of the first day of Barbarossa, with description of the planning, conditions of the armies, and personal accounts from soldiers on both sides.  That said, I only gave this book four stars instead of five for two reasons:

  1.  The book doesn't really add much that is new; and
  2. Restricting the account to the first day of the are on the Eastern Front seems a bit artificial and exclusive to this reader.

Overall, a good book but I would recommend reading another book by this author instead:  Barbarossa Unleashed, a more comprehensive account of the Barbarossa campaign.

Good Treatment of June 22, 1941
