lots of unit details
By iraqiwildman August 20, 2015
The author offers a very detailed and well researched order of battle. His descriptions of the opposing commanders of the major units are very interesting. The main Russian commander, Rokossovsky, was imprisoned during Stalins purge of the Red Army in the late 1930s and had all his teeth knocked out by the Russian secret police. Model was the German commander and was one of Hitlers favorites, so he got away with doing what was militarily needed, and not what Hitler wanted, which lead to massive causalities on the Russian side. This shows how well the German military would have performed without Hitlers constant interference. The author used the German names for the military formations, but used English for the Russians formations. This made it kind of hard to read while trying to pronounce German words, but it did help me keep the units straight as to what side they belonged to.I liked the chapter that dealt with Operation Kutusov, the Russian offensive to clean up the Orel salient. This battle receives very little historical attention, since the Russians lost so many resources to take the same area. I really like these kind of book, they are story and easy to read in a 3-4 hours. But are loaded with factual information.
