Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Moscow 1941: Hitler's first defeat (Campaign) (Paperback)
A very good book, very detailed on the German attempt to seize Moscow.
I particularly like the 2d maps of these books. They are simple and give you a good idea of what is going on.
On the other hand, I have never found the 3D maps very useful. Most of the time the action is located in the middle of the map and therefore in the book binding. They may be useful for battles like Monte Cassino for example where the relief justify the use of 3D.
Said that, that is just one point of view.
Another good thing is that the photograph captions are meaningful. I mean by that that other Ospreys have very poor and meaningless captions.
Another good thing is that the author does just enough to set up the battle. Countless of other books waste nearly half of a campaign book into background narration.
Overall, a very good book that is well worth a read.
