Very believable: I genuinely could not put it down!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Disaster at Stalingrad: An Alternate History (Hardcover)
Brilliant "what-if" book written in a style reminiscent of Tom Clancy's Red Storm Rising with a view of the war on the Eastern Front from the perspective of real and interesting historical characters e.g Ulrich Rudel (great autobiography by the way)
I was totally gripped by this booked and literally finished it in two sittings (very unusual for me).
Author clearly has an excellent knowledge of the subject and nicely includes the known personalities of those involved like Manstein and Paulus.
Very believable account and nicely written.
If I have any negatives it would be that it's a little too tidily sewn up at the end (although the pedant in me baulks at Messerschmitt Bf109's being called Me109's...grrrr)
As a student of WW2 military Ostfront history I enjoyed it immensely.
Must get some more of this guy's books!
