Product description

Review

-With bold, powerful brush strokes, Tunstall paints a picture of horrendous death in the Carpathian Mountains. Austria-Hungary and Russia each lost about one million men, making the battle more costly than the better known ones of Verdun and the Somme 1916. Meticulously researched and well written, this is military history at its finest. A must read.---Holger H. Herwig, author of The Marne, 1914 -Snow falls on the mountains, wolves howl in the distance, and two doomed armies learn the truth of the old adage, 'there is no enemy more formidable than nature.' An essential book for all World War I libraries.---Robert M. Citino, author of The German Way of War -A must read for anyone interested in the Great War's Eastern front.---Richard L. DiNardo, author of Breakthrough: The Gorlice-Tarnow Campaign, 1915

"The book is a detailed case study, based on extensive primary source research, of an attempt to devise a viable strategy to meet drastically-changed, unforeseen conditions with impending crisis--and with an increasingly domineering ally."--Parameters

"In giving a full account of the winter war, Tunstall has rendered a vital service to our understanding of World War I. This is a must book for experts and novices alike."--NYMAS Review, New York Military Affairs Symposium
