5.0 out of 5 stars German Defeat in the East, 24 July 2009

This review is from: German Defeat in the East, 1944-45 (Stackpole Military History) (Paperback)
Another great book from the Stackpole Stable.It chronicles the Russian Army's defeat of Army Group Centre in Operation Bagration from the
aftermath Kursk to the gates of Berlin. Good points, very clearly & concisely written with separate appendices at the end of each chapter giving a detailled thumbnail biography of the main characters involved. Clear & easy to follow maps.

Not so good, the author's modern Americanisations in the text where T34's are "blown away" and the Russian Army is constantly referred to as "the Reds".

Appendix 3 also has an unfortunate missprint where,in detailling the major tanks of the period, each has 100mm added to it's gun calibre so that a T34 has a 176mm gun & the Tiger a amazing 188mm weapon.

That said, it is still a fine effort & well worth adding to my eastern front collection.
