    A Comprehensive Operational Account In its three hundred plus p

    A Comprehensive Operational Account

    In its three hundred plus pages this book packs quite a detailed opertional account of the four years of conflict on the Eastern Front during the Second World War. The background to, and causes of the war are discussed briefly in the first chapter and a couple of other chapters later in the book are given over to explaining the development and production of weapon systems and to the development of force structures and tactics, but the bulk of the book is concerned with events on the battlefield.
    These events are described in a balanced way, and all the significant campaigns are covered, from the Arctic to the Caucasus. Because the narrative covers the war chronologically, and because major events on different parts of the long frontline occurred concurrently, the narrative tends to switch back and forth between events in the Ukraine and battles further north. However, a comprehensive set of maps helps in following a narrative that involved hundreds of locations, armies, corps and divisions over a thousand miles of frontline and over four years of intense conflict.
    Covering the war from north to south and from first to last, this is by far the most comprehensive overview of the ground fighting on the Eastern Front that I have read.

    Too Much Narrat Tive Too Much Narrative Too Little Analysis

    This is a rambling chronological narrative of the war on the Eastern Front with little pause for analysis or reflection. It is far from balanced devoting insufficient attention to the critical first six months of the war. Overall a grest disappointment.
