5.0 out of 5 stars Another good primary source 23 Aug 2011

This series is really building well and at that price it's hard to beat. This is the best account I have read of the the escape of trapped German forces from the pocket at Velikeye Luki. Well you'd expect that as it consists of accounts by survivors . Indespensible stuff . Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic depth and sources 11 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Found this product to be a very interesting read, the survivors accounts from battles were especially informative, and in places quite touching. I would recommend this to anyone looking to glean a bit more knowledge on the subject, as I think you would struggle to find the soldier's recollections of the conflict anywhere else. Good stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Encirclement & escape 8 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Written as a "matter of fact" and how to get out of trouble! type manual. It would seem that sometimes it was tactically planned to cause one's self to become surrounded. Not sure the plan actually worked in Stalingrad (it didn't) but a good informative read, no regrets buying it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull as dishwater 29 Jun 2013
By Stephen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Gave up trying to read this book. I have a great interest in the second world war especially the battles that took place on the Eastern Front. But I have to say this book bored me to tears. I also read 'servants of Evil' by the same author and again found it a dull book. I couldn't 'dive in' and feel lost in it like other books it seemed very amateurish and no proper order to it.
