After failing to finish off the German Army in the 1941/42 Winter Counter-offensive and aware that Hitler was planning a new summer offensive in mid-1942, Stalin directed the Red Army to conduct a powerful blow in one sector of the Eastern Front in order to disrupt German plans. The sector chosen was Kharkov, and under Marshal Semyon Timoshenko the Stavka's remaining reserves were assembled and prepared to conduct a breakthrough attack intended to encircle the German Sixth Army.

However, the Germans were planning their own riposte at Kharkov, known as Operation Fridericus. The campaign developed into one of the Red Army's greatest defeats of World War II, contributing to the Wehrmacht's ability to push to the Volga River. This book describes the revival of the German Panzertruppen in the prelude to the Stalingrad campaign.
