The rise of the Third Reich was one of history's most terrifying events. Reduced to rubble following World War I, Germany was literally in shambles and stripped of her army. Yet, less than twenty years later, the Wehrmacht was the symbol of German military might. How could Germany arm so fast and without detection? This book details the revival of the German armed forces and the assistance given to them by the Soviet Union. The authors reveal the contents of uncovered secret documents that prove that German forces trained and built new equipment, including tanks and airplanes, in a shroud of secrecy on Russian soil.The authors demonstrate how the foundation of Hitler's army was really put together by Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin. A cover-up that has lasted for more than sixty years, "The Red Army and the Wehrmacht" unravels the details of an unspoken alliance that changed the course of world history and remained a secret until now. The authors contend that had it not been for Soviet aid, Hitler's military build-up would not have been possible and World War II may have been prevented.
