    i have been following ww2 and all aspects of it for years and have lurked here for some time. i dont think i have seen this discussed here so i guess i will start the topic. thank you for your help.

    what happened to the soviet army in poland on june 22 1942? i know that the pact between stalin and hitler split poland into two parts shared by both there armies and ussr occupied the eastern part of poland shortly after the german invasion. so my question is when barbarossa happened and hitler unleashed his armies on the ussr what was the situation in poland? were they encircled and wiped out easily from lack of supplies/logistics from the soviet high command? or did they hold out or retreat or surrender? i always wondered what happened? can someone a little more knowledgeable please explain this to me? the situation there and result of the german invasion to the soviets in poland? thank you. take care. :)

    Hello Arbeit….
    I do sincerely wonder about your choice of name…..maybe you could try Auschwitz or Euthanasia as well??:rolleyes:
    As in regards to your question, try to read “Operation Barbarossa” by Paul Carell, it covers the topic quite well.

    Hello W. W,
    It’s been a long, long time since I read Paul Carell’s Barbarossa. I remember it had a bit of a “what if” touch when it came to explaining setbacks on behalf of the Wehrmacht.
    How is Glantz’s book comparing in that matter?
    Regards
    Kruska

    Hm,Paul Carell is a good writer,but he is as reliable about Barbarossa,as Karl May about the Indians in North America.:D

    I agree - I have Vol 1 & 2 of Hitler's War on Russia by Paul Carell - very good. At least it has maps, unlike The Road to Stalingrad by John Erickson.

    is that book any good? I was planning on getting a hold of it, it was mentioned in 'Absolute War', which I'm reading now, and Bellamy says it's one of the best books on Stalingrad and the Eastern front.
