The Battle of Kursk 1943: The View Through the Camera Lens

4.0 out of 5 stars Kursk, from a Soviet perspective., 18 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The definition of the battle of Kursk is much wider than I expected, ranging from February through August 1943, although I can understand the rationale which produced this. Whilst there are numerous photos, the proportion of individual portraits is higher than I like, but there are a number of excellent action/field shots for me to study and savour. The text is concise, but informative.
It is a worthwhile addition to my library.

5.0 out of 5 stars All you will ever need to know!, 30 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have not had time to study this book in detail, but I want to say that I am stunned by the breadth and depth of both the text and the photographic content of this work.
I long ago became jaded with the principal protagonists of World War 2, and began looking at the lesser national participants. Hitherto my library on the Bulgarian contribution was 2 slim tomes (also by this author), the first on Armored Vehicles the second on Softskin Vehicles, but with text in Bulgarian.
This new work combines the subject matter, and in unbelievable depth, covering the acquisition of vehicles, training of personnel, and operational use, chronologically, both as part of the Axis, and with the Allies. The text, although clearly translated, is easily comprehended, and indeed I have found it to be quite readable, not always the case!
My first measure of such books is the photographic content, and this work has 600, at least half of which were new to me. The captions are informative, and in my estimation correct
If you are interested in this relative backwater of military history this is an absolutely "must buy". It is not a cheap buy, but I doubt you will ever need to make another.

This review is from: Bluestone 42 [DVD] (DVD)
Brilliant - I fear that it is painfully accurate (even if some elements of the humour are exaggerated!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Once again a brilliant series is cancelled - see what you can on this DVD., 2 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Why, why was it cancelled?
This is possibly the most intelligent, and thought out SF series, ever!
The only explanation that I can imagine is that Senior Management are terrified that this series might actually make people think!
