Re: NEW BOOK ON EASTERN FRONT BY CRAIG LUTHER

Hi Dr. Luther, Thank you for sharing your upcoming book "The First Day of War on the Eastern Front. Germany Invades the Soviet Union, June 22, 1941".

Re: We Will Not Go to Tuapse. From the Donets to the Oder with the Legion Wallonie and 5th SS Volunteer Assault Brigade

It is with sadness that the author of this memoir, Fernand Kaisergruber had passed away on 16th of March 2018. Fernand is probably the last veteran of the Legion Wallonie and one of the few survivors who managed to escape the Tcherkassy pocket in 1944. He is also the last living survivor of the Wall...

Re: New WW2 Eastern Front books 2018

Hello Klaus, I will be looking for Statiev's work as well. By the way, do you have Aleksei Isaev's Dubno 1941? Is it worth to get it? At the moment the price in Amazon had been reduced so I was wondering it would be worth to get it At least no more of Glantz' churning out Ostfront books ala Kurowski...

Re: New WW2 Eastern Front books 2018

I have Alexander Statiev's work on the Soviet counterinsurgency operations on the Russian western borderlands and it is a really good, free of those disguised Soviet propaganda as you typically found in the works of John Erickson, Gabriel Gorodetsky e.g. Statiev's work is very dry and heavy to read ...

Re: New WW2 Eastern Front books 2018

It's great to see a new generation of Russian military historians professional works being translated to English for the global market. It's high time that more studies from the Russian side are coming to the light. There are still a huge ton of undiscovered archives in Russian Federation with regar...

There is a new generation of Russian military historians such Igor Nebolsin, Alexei Isaev, Valery Zamulin whose works are being translated to English that gave us new perspectives of the Eastern Front from Soviet archives.

Re: New David Glantz book in 2018!

Can Glantz focus his research on something else instead regurgitating again and again battles of Moscow, Rzhev, Kiev, Vyazma, Bryansk, Smolensk, Kharkov, Stalingrad, Leningrad, Kursk? Its been done to death with regards to these so-called huge battles in the Eastern Front Glantz's earlier work on So...

Re: New Book on the German Armed Forces

Hopefully, this book contains information about the deserved retribution by the Greek partisans against the German invader.
