"Nations Without Mirrors" by H.G. Kupke.

Hi Folks. Does anybody have a copy of the a/m for sale or willing to swop for an alternative Eastern front biography they may not have read in English (e.g. "The Outermost Frontier" by Helmut Pabst), I have a number of such biographies in English language if any member would like to exchange. With T...

Re: New books to be published!

At $23.55 for Jason D. Mark's history of the 24th Pz. Division at Stalingrad this is extremely good value by way of viewpoint, Amazon state copies of the original retail for $900 on browsing the ABE books website they have a 2003 copy selling for $2,796.47.... and that excludes postage.

Re: New Graf Strachwitz biography

I think you mean George Nipe's "Blood Steel and Myth." Yes, he tends to be rather critical of Strachwitz's performance during Kursk, and seems to side more with Decker. Of course I really don't know what the truth of the matter is. It is the same with General Hermann Balck. He is considered one of ...
