I found this book entertaining in some respects but in others a little slow. I did not like the personal "battle" between the individuals and found the story thin. I did like the technicla descriptions on the uses and limitations of the Stug which enhanced my understanding of its capability so in this respect it was worth the read. The defence of the fortress parts was as far as possible factual taking the Germans weeks to finally capture it after leaving it surrounded.
Not a great book but okay, worth a read if you like the German perspective as well as the other side...

A prequel to tiger command this time set in the initial stage of attack on Russia. All characters are there from tiger command plus a new baddie.

Not as good as Tiger Command, but still an enjoyable Story. The translation from german to english was obviously difficult.

I found this novel started out well with the writer really trying to get the atmosphere of suspense as the German force wait to unleash Barbarossa. Unfortunately not long after this the book becomes muddled and messy and it quickly becomes hard to identify one character as the main protagonist as we are shown events from more and more perspectives this leads to the main characters story becoming diluted.

Another problem I have is that for a book with this title I'd expect a fair amount of armoured combat to be included, but It seems that this is not the case as it features only a handful of times, what there is good and enjoyable to read but I would of liked more.

My main complaint however is that the book doesn't seem to know what it is, a historical journal or a piece of fiction set in WW2. This is due to the multitude of characters I mentioned all having their perspectives referenced which gives an overall/strategic view to the conflict you'd expect to find in a reference book not a personal account you want in a piece of fiction. Another example of this is the amount of name dropping there is which started to get a bit ridiculous.

**** SPOILER ALERT ****

Himmler, Heinrich Himmler and Canaris all feature in the book and Goering and hitler are also mentioned. All this together meant i reached the end of the book feeling confused as to what i had just read and waiting for some sort of conclusion which never came.
