5.0 out of 5 stars This is THE Stalingrad book!, 21 Jun. 2003
This review is from: Stopped at Stalingrad: Luftwaffe and Hitler's Defeat in the East, 1942-43 (Modern War Studies) (Paperback)
This is the only Stalingrad book I recommend without any qualifying "but"s. It is based almost exclusively on unpublished German military archival sources, which are translated perfectly, it is stunningly original in its approach and focus, and it is written in an engaging way for such a thick and detailed book.
Who knew before this book the scale and nature of the Luftwaffe's contribution to German eastern front victories during 1942 and the first half of 1943? NO-ONE!
Kharkov, Kerch, Sevastopol, the Don bend, Stalingrad, the airlift, the battles for the Kuban, Manstein's 1943 counteroffensive: all these battles were decisively shaped by the Luftwaffe and not merely as army-support. In many of these battles, Hayward teaches us for the first time, the army served as airforce support!!!!
This story is gripping and dramatic, but also analytical and very, very accurate.
Outstanding and essential. If you can only afford one Stalingrad book this month, make it this one.
