A strategical and tactical account
on 27 March 2017
"Tomb of the Panzerwaffe" is about the German offensives in Transdanubian Hungary in 1945 and the respective Soviet counter measures. Despite the subtitle, which alludes to operation "Frühlingserwachen" in March of that year, the preceding German attacks to relieve Budapest are covered as well.
Being an introductory strategical and tactical account, you'll hardly find any tanker's or rifleman's report in here (accordingly, the plight of the population is left out, too). Yet, there are lots of details, especially with regard to the strength and equipment of the combatants.
It is hard to get books like this in German. Taking into consideration the impressive (for me mostly new) photographs, the authors' systematical approach and the publisher's splendid layout, "Tomb of the Panzerwaffe" gets my full marks.
