“Mercatante knows the current literature on the German army as well as anyone… and offers a new interpretation of Operation Barbarossa (usually seen as the great German blunder of the war) as, in fact, Germany’s last and best hope actually to win the war. A book filled with fresh argumentation of this sort, should generate a fair amount of discussion and even controversy… I know I would pick up a book of this sort as soon as I saw it, and I am fairly certain that I will not be alone.”
