About the Authors
  • The reasons behind Hitler's invasion of the Soviet Union are well known, but what about those of the other Axis and non-Axis powers that joined Operation Barbarossa? Six other European armies fought with the Wehrmacht in 1941 and six more countries sent volunteers, as well as there being countless collaborators in the east of various nationalities who were willing to work with the Germans in 1941. The political, social and military context behind why so many nations and groups of volunteers opted to join Hitler's war in the east reflects the many diverse, and largely unknown, roads that led to Operation Barbarossa. With each chapter dealing with a new country and every author being a subject matter expert on that nation, proficient in the local language and historiography, this fascinating new study offers unparalleled insight into non-German participation on the Eastern Front in 1941.

    • This study offers a concept never written about before – why so many countries, both Axis and non-Axis powers, opted to take part in Operation Barbarossa
    • With every chapter grounded in usually inaccessible languages, and some not yet covered in Anglo-American discourse, this study offers a completely new slant on the well-known aspects of 1941
    • It presents many new interpretations of Operation Barbarossa, none of which follows the usual German-dominated perspective
