After the defeat at Stalingrad in January 1943, the German Army’s front lines were slowly smashed to pieces by the growing might of the Soviet Army. Yet these soldiers continued to fight gallantly. Even after the failed battle of the Kursk in the summer of 1943, and then a year later when the Russians launched their mighty summer offensive, code names Operation BAGRATION, the German Army continued to fight on, withdrawing under constant enemy ground and air bombardments. As the final months of retreat were played out on the Eastern Front in early 1945, it depicts how the once vaunted German Army, with diminishing resources, withdrew back across the Polish/German frontier to Berlin itself.

Drawing on a collection of rare contemporary German photographs covering the last two years of the war accompanied by in-depth captions, this latest book in the popular Images of War series provides an insight to the long and most bitter Eastern Front campaign. It reveals in detail how the battle of Kursk was the beginning of the end and led to the Red Army recapturing huge areas of the Soviet Union. In the face of the long awaited Soviet summer offensive of 1944, German forces were forced to withdraw under constant ground and aerial bombardments. Those German forces that survived the artillery barrages, the onslaught of the tank armadas and mass infantry assaults, streamed back westwards and fought vicious defensive battles through the Baltic States, Byelorussia and Poland. As the final months of the War were played out on the Eastern Front, the Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS, with diminishing resources, withdrew across a devastated Reich to fight their final battle around Berlin.

Auschwitz and Birkenau were separate from each other,by about a 45 minute walk. Auschwitz was adapted to hold political prisoners in 1940 and evolved into a killing machine in 1941. Later that year a new site called Birkenau was found to extend the Auschwitz complex. Here a vast complex of buildings were constructed to hold initially Russian POWs and later Jews as a labour pool for the surrounding industries including IG Farben. Following the January 1943 Wannsee Conference, Birkenau evolved into a murder factory using makeshift houses which were adapted to kill Jews and Russian POWs. Later due to sheer volume Birkenau evolved into a mass killing machine using gas chambers and crematoria, while Auschwitz, which still held prisoners, became the administrative centre. The images show first Auschwitz main camp and then Birkenau and are carefully chosen to illustrate specific areas, like the WomenÕs Camp, Gypsy Camp, SS quarters, CommandantÕs House, railway disembarkation, the ÔsaunaÕ, disinfection area and the Crematoria. Maps covering Auschwitz and Birkenau explain the layout This book is shocking proof of the scale of the Holocaust.
