Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It seems that Glantz's work recieves either praise or damnation, never anything in the middle.

In truth, I may be a little unfair in awarding this book only two stars - I'll readily admit I didn't read it all - I started, and within 20 pages my brain shut down. Then I skipped bits just to confirm that the whole book followed the format.

The text is immensely dry; something I cannot overstate. If you're used to the more descriptive anecdotal works of Keegan or Holmes (or Ambrose or indeed anyone else in the arena) then the chronological statement of facts will lose your interest pretty quickly.

The Maps are very poor quality reproduced in print - it's simply impossible to determine any information from most of them. Squinting at a poor quality sub-A5 map printed with heavy ink on rough paper with black on black on black and all the information as you'd find on an OS map is not what I'd expect for the money.

I don't doubt that this weighty tome will find a happy home for those who like their facts cold and hard, but in reality it's a textbook and not really an enlightening or entertaining work.

Format: Hardcover
This study endeavours - and succeeds - in presenting an overview and operational-level account of the wave of Soviet offensives launched through the winter of 1942/43. It contains close to 120 maps, and is extensively annotated and referenced. It is presented in a similar vein to many of the author's other Eastern Front studies, and as such, if you like those, you will also find much in this of great value.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dave History Student on 22 Oct. 2011
Format: Paperback
This book covers the critical period of mid Nov, 1942 to early Apr 1943, and is the lynchpin that links the author's Stalingrad books and his Kursk book but unlike those books, this book covers action for most of the entire front and completes for Mr Glantz the battle coverage from spring 1942 to the end of August 1943.
Another reason for writing this book was to correct or expand on campaigns that were distorted or deliberately omitted in prior Soviet books and documents written since the war. There has been much attention given to Operations Uranus and Little Saturn but the author shows that during this time frame the Russians were busy along their entire front but fail to publicize some of it. The major offensive on the Rzhev salient and the siege at Demyansk are two examples where the Germans were able to repulsed a far superior force. Stalin did everything possible to hide these failures but Mr Glantz has worked hard to uncover the facts.
In the first chapter, Mr Glantz summarizes 4 pages of campaigns broken down by geographic sector, Front, axis of advance, and time frame that will be covered in the book. It includes campaigns at Rzhev, Demyansk, Voroshilovgrad, Mariupol, Orel, Voronezh, L'gov, Bryansk, Smolensk, Staraya Russa and Velikie Luki. The author spends the most time on the following campaign three areas: Orel-Bryansk-Smolensk, Voroshilovrad and Rzhev salient. The battle for Stalingrad or Hoth's relief attempt is mention only in passing.

There are nine chapters devoted to the above campaigns. The format is the same for each chapter: Introduction, Planning, the Offensive and Conclusions. The detailed Introduction and Planning stages were excellent and gave the reader a good understanding of the objectives.
