    Crimes_Against_the_WehrmachtBy Professor Franz W. Seidler. This book is intended to provide a picture of the dangers posed to every German soldier by the Red Army’s conduct of partisan warfare in violation of international law.

    The book provides full documentation of over 300 Soviet war crimes committed in 1941–1942, accompanied by exact descriptions, many of them proven in detail by eyewitness statements and photographic evidence.

    Even Goebbels’ propaganda ministry was compelled to keep silent about these atrocities for fear of their possible effects on the morale on the war front and the domestic front. Only now is the full truth of the matter revealed.

    The photographs—more than 100 of them—were carefully compiled to prove every accusation against the Soviets. The book is a scholarly indictment of Stalin’s Red army, which committed these truly horrifying—and as yet unpunished—war crimes.

    Franz W. Seidler is a Professor of Modern History at the University of the Bundeswehr, Munich. Dr. Seidler’s principal field of research is World War II. Translated by Carlos Porter.
