Germany Smashes Soviet Command and Commo
250 pages; 7 chapters and 5 appendices
Barbarossa Breakthrough is a unique e-book about World War II on the
Eastern Front. Barbarossa Breakthrough describes the fantastically
well-plan pre-emptive German invasion of the USSR in 1941 in a unique way.
Barbarossa Breakthrough emphasizes the fantastic unfolding of the
German assault, spearheaded by a fleet of very light and obsolete panzers,
on Soviet Army Command and Communications, which was actually the
primary target of surgical German Luftwaffe and special operations assaults.
German warfighting, far ahead of anything before or since, presents a
remarkable model for future warfare. Barbarossa Breakthrough is one of
the few books about World War II on the Eastern Front that reveals
precise aspects of the initial invasion that most military writers tend to ignore
or barely mention.
"Extensive effort produced detailed targeting information, which the Luftwaffe divided into several categories, such as
military objectives, industrial objectives, transportation facilities, and communications facilities. Air reconnaissance
assisting the targeting effort began during the winter of 1940-1941 after Hitler personally ordered such activity in October
1940. The General Staff prepared comprehensive target dossiers from the various target categories and these dossiers
were so meticulously organized as to include large and small-scale maps, air photos, and even relief maps when required.
Targets were additionally classified as those which would appear only after war began and those present before
hostilities. By doctrine, air planning attached higher priority to those targets existing before the attack and to the planning
and intelligence gathering activities conducted during peacetime."
