5.0 out of 5 stars Another superb account by Clark., 20 Aug 2011
This review is from: Kursk: The Greatest Battle (Hardcover)
I have read and enjoyed LLoyd Clarks other two books on "Anzio" and "Arnhem"- but this one is even better.Clark is a good writer with a very readable style.Even a military history novice could pick up this book and be gripped by it.
Clark has the knack of being able to take the strategic overview , placing the battle in the context of the entire Eastern Front since 1941, but at the same time synthesising it with eyewitness accounts ,both Russian and German.The book moves easily from the "Wolfs Lair" and the Kremlin to the front lines.
Clark also analyses and attempts to answer the question of just why Hitler called off "Operation Citadel"- just as Mansrein and the southern prong of the German attack were beginning to make real progress.
This is likely to be the standard account of the "Battle of Kursk" for many years to come- highly recommended.
