Seaton, Colonel Albert. The Battle for Moscow. New York: Sarpedon, 1993.
Introduction; maps; photos; glossary; notes and sources; selected bibliography.
It's nice to see Seaton's The Battle for Moscow back in print. His books are among the finest Western works on the Russian front in World War II and his Russo-German War remains the best single-volume account of the entire campaign.
The Battle for Moscow is a well-written account of Operation Typhoon, the final German lunge against the Soviet capital at the end of 1941; it is also well-researched from the German and, given the restrictions on use of their archives at the time, Soviet perspectives. Along with Turney's Disaster at Moscow and Parrish's Battle for Moscow, this book is part of a very strong trilogy on what some commentators consider the decisive battle of the war.
This softcover edition has eliminated the acknowledgements, lists of illustrations and maps, and -- most importantly -- the index, but remains a very strong title for readers and researchers.
Thanks to Sarpedon for providing this copy.
