5.0 out of 5 stars Superb..., 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Take Budapest! The Struggle for Hungary, Autumn 1944 (Paperback)
More a quick note than a review.

Two factors standout when reading the book. Firstly the high quality of the writing. I read that English is not the author's first language. This may be the reason for the very clear, unfussy style.

Secondly the quality of the research is outstanding. The authors' previous book is a wonder of research from the German records and archives. Amazingly in Take Budapest the author demonstrates his skill in researching the Soviets is equally great. This ability to deliver the very highest quality of research from both sides of the hill is very rare. Indeed the quality of research coming from both sides in this book is so high I would rate it the highest I have ever come across in the hundreds of military history books and papers I have read. Many authors do an excellent job of research from one side or the other, not ever before from both sides to this degree.

Happily Kamen Nevenkin has a number of books in the pipeline; I will be buying them all.

Congratulations to him...
