Barbarossa: How Hitler Lost the War

Drawing on hitherto unseen archival material, including previously untranslated Russian sources, Jonathan Dimbleby puts Operation Barbarossa, Hitler’s Invasion of Russia in June 1941, into its proper place in history for the first time. From its origins in the ashes of the First World War to its impact on post-war Europe, and covering the military, political and diplomatic story from all sides, he paints a full and vivid picture of this monumental campaign whose full nature and impact has remained unexplored. Described as a masterwork, told with verve and elan, Dimbleby argues that Barbarossa was a colossal mistake that lost Hitler the Second World War. Jonathan will be in conversation with Professor David Reynolds FBA, the author of The Kremlin Letters.
