This book opens one of the pages of the World War II - the episode of the fight on the East Front, the defence of Kyiv, the important centre of the Soviet Union, in summer of 1941. The edition is the first part of the series devoted to the topic "Kyiv. 1941 - 1945". Guided by archival documents, photographic stuff and their own archaeological investigations, the group of authors for the first time in the history of the problem has described in correct chronological order the stages of the city defence - from the first battles to the entrance of Vermaht soldiers to Kyiv. The particular attention in the book is paid to operations of infantry subdivisions and aviation. The next edition of the series is being planned to describe operations of armoured troops, Pinsk and Dniprovska flotillas, armoured trains and units commanded by major Vlasov. A separate chapter describes defensive works of Kyiv fortified area. Pill-boxes were inspected by authors personally. The chapter deals with types of defences, the history of their construction in thirties, modernization in 1941 and the present condition of pill-boxes. All the measurements are made by the authors and all the present-day photographs are taken by them. In the near future the separate volume devoted to Kyiv fortified area is to appear in print.
In subsequent plans of the publishers there is a book devoted to the liberation of Kyiv in 1943.
78 pages, 60 photos
