In the few months following June 22 1941, the German Wehrmacht stomped the
arrogance out of the
Red Army in about 20 amazing encirclements, capturing and
killing in the process, millions of the veterans of the
Red Army. Suddenly, those evil
commie imperialist transgressors and soul-takers of the Baltic States, Poland,
Rumania and parts of China no longer existed. Then things began to change. The
German traitor cartel went into high gear, sabotaging and revealing Germany’s plans
apriori. Now the propaganda rags spoke only of the
Soviet Encirclement of
. QuikManeuvers.com e-book Soviet Encirclement of Germans tells that
grim story, that so many did not live to tell themselves. The story’s told as only angry
hard men can tell it.
Soviet Encirclement of Germans is grown-up writing
impossible to re-enact.
Soviet Encirclement of Germans describes the characters
and techniques that matter in a crisp, carefully researched portrait of a body epic
maneuvered by treachery. The compelling history of that era is a saga of undercover
treason and violent, endless corpse production, which sometimes caused the world’s
most evil man, Joe Stalin, to blanche. The e-book
Soviet Encirclement of
goes into great detail to describe how to detect the clues that an
encirclement is possible, how to plan an encirclement, how to carry out an
encirclement correctly, and it offers a complete gestalt description of five major
Soviet Encirclements of Germans. Those examples are provided so that the
reader can understand the whole process as it flowed.  It is all there, read it for
yourself in

Review Table of Contents
"In the Demyansk operation, the Soviets failed to exploit their advantage in relative combat power, in comparison to the
German invaders. As a result, the Germans successfully extricated nearly 100,000 men from a very dangerous
encirclement in the dead of winter. Recognizing the operational shortcomings of its Red Army leaders and of its
operational art, Soviet Stavka decided to disseminate rapidly to field commanders periodic doctrinal and tactical revisions
learned from recent combat operations. One of those revisions addressed the phenomenon of encircled forces. The
destruction of encircled forces was determined to comprise two separate operations:
   (1) the prevention of link-up efforts by the enemy, and
   (2) the annihilation of the surrounded force.
That main revision was subsequently published in Voyennaya Mysl (Military Thought) a journal written by gifted higher
commanders. (The USA has never had enough talented high commander warfighters to produce such a journal). Stavka’s
review of the two primary features of promulgated methodology, were intended to enhance future Soviet leadership efforts
by first encouraging self-analysis and synthesis. Those processes were calculated as the first mental steps leading to
enhanced leadership on the frontline.
Importantly, the suggested revision distinguished operational from tactical encirclement. The condition for operational
encirclement was determined to be the joining of mobile arms deep behind the enemy's rear, which resulted in severing
his lines of communication. Tactical encirclement consisted of a solid ring all around, and in close proximity to, the enemy
force. Accordingly, a Soviet operational element was tasked to prevent the Germans from linking their relief and encircled
forces. The Soviet tactical element was given the mission of annihilating the encircled German grouping. Collectively,
those two important Soviet action correlates, referred to as the "internal" and "external" fronts or as the "inner" and
"outer" rings made up a Soviet-style encirclement of undiluted power."
