Days of Battle: Armoured Operations North of the River Danube, Hungary 1944-45

Price: £2.25

3.0 out of 5 stars Days of battle, 23 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Enjoyed the book and found it enlightening but the lack of maps made it hard to visualize the combat also can't understand why the names of divisions wasn't abbreviated but overall the combat was described well ,huge losses for the Germans emphasised the desperation of hitler to hang on worth a read .

Excellent read if slightly dramatically written with western bias and very cheap ,if your interests in the fallshirmagers it's defiantly worth a perusal .

A good read will follow up the story of the keaton brothers.illustrates how so young and ignorant men or should I say boys were of the war situation ,no doubt real situations like this did exist .

5.0 out of 5 stars Waffen ss armour in normandy, 28 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastically informative book for a very cheap price ,read quite a lot regarding normandy combat including the 12ss but found a lot more information than in other larger historical books about the combat in normandy .The only gripe I have is the sparse use of maps which are of poor quality anyway and the annoying use of the appendix which had a lot of useful extra info of personnel and units but one had to constantly flick to the allotted numbered appendix and then back to the main text .it should have just been in the main text itself but in spite of that a great book enjoy.


Stalingrad Battle Atlas: Volume I

Price: £3.51

4.0 out of 5 stars Stalingrad battle atlas, 7 Feb. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fascinating aerial photos ,not perhaps as detailed as one would like but for the time period still interesting,will definitely buy the second volume as it helps one with other stalingrad battle works like the death of the leaping horseman or Anthony beevor book stalingrad gives you s better perspective of the vastness of the conflict.

Gave the book 3 stars it was a very brief account of the hitler jugend division ,quite a few decent photos ,some I'd not seen .found the captions repeated far too often though ,but the book was priced very cheaply so one cannot complain too much.

This review is from: Hitler's Triumphs (Kindle Edition)
Very different version of history that is taught in mainstream education,thought provoking it is indeed Will the truth ever be allowed to be revealed ,who knows very readable maybe not for everybody's taste but I thought it was fascinating.

A very enlightening explanation of the luftwaffe rise and fall,strange that the terrible bombing of Dresden wasn't featured.a very through account of air strategy across the board which is very interesting well worth a read
