I used to regularly visit Feldgrau and enjory (sometimes heated) debates/learning new information on all aspects of WW2 history.
Prit, Commisar, Sid Gutteridge, Phylo, Xavier and many more (and Jason!)- i hope you are all very well (and can remember me!).
My father has been battling cancer for several years and this situation came to a head on Thursday when he finally succumb to his illness. He was a true inspiration to all of my family.
In those final days and hours we sat there with my father and we would read. The hospice was very peaceful and i bought 'Stalingrad by Antony Beevors' from the on site charity book shop there to study.
I found this book exceptional. Maybe a little too 'author opinionated' in some places but the opening sequences regards the Barborossa operation (on the diplomatic front) i found riveting!
In this difficult time I found myself in this time reminiscing at the good times on the Feldgrau- and the classic 'Bonzai' thread of the Commissar's!
Is there any sources of information that solely concentrates on the diplomatic, behind the scenes situation regards the major campaigns of the second world war?
Many thanks, Jez.
