    I was slightly underwhelmed by this book to be honest It clocks in rather modestly at just over 300 pages, of which 40 or so are devoted to a very brief precis of the early stages of Operation Barbarossa, much of which really falls outside the scope of the Molotov Ribbentrop Pact Ofinterest is the lasting legacy of the pact, particularly in the Baltic States, but again this is dealt with rather perfunctorily in the epilogue The body of t
