• Eyewitness accounts of the German 3rd Panzer Division on the Russian Front

This is Operation Barbarossa as experienced by the soldiers of the 3rd Panzer Division and reported on the German homefront. After smashing its way deep into Soviet territory during the summer of 1941, the tanks of the division encountered difficulties as they got closer to Moscow, eventually being halted not far from the Soviet capital. Written by eyewitnesses to the invasion, these accounts chronicle the Division's exploits as the pace of advance slowed and the ravages of winter began to be felt. Two panzer experts have provided commentary, placing these events in their historical context and providing details about commanders, vehicles, and more.
