This book deals with NOT general history of Russo-German
War. It is more close to the technical document of military
tactics -- if you want to understand the situation in this book,
you first should have some knowledges about the entire war.
But, for the reader who have it, 'The Anvil of War' will be
an exciting supplementary reading account. It deals with
the very moment of Russo-German War -- mainly from personal
experiences of Generaloberst Rauss who was the commander of
6th Panzerdivision, 4th Panzerarmee and 3rd Panzerarmee.
And it also includes the bitter encirclement of 56,000 Germans
in Cherkassy and the bloody Belikye-Luki fighting, etc.
