you mean Paul Carell, right?

I have "Schorched Earth" by Paul Carell, but by different publisher and not in english.

And I'm planning to buy "Operation Barbarossa in Photographs : War in Russia as Photographed by the Soldiers" in the distant future.

And how can I get them without paying ?:confused:

@alephh :

Hi !
so...I have several questions for you :

1. Does the book Operation Zitadelle and Operation Bagration ?
2. Which are the starting/ending dates of the book ? e.g. : 5 July 1943 - 22 June 1944
3. Are there any pictures from the battles ?
4. Any maps too ?
5. Is it fully detailed when talking about divisions, regiments, corps, battalions, ... ?
6. What does it describe ? Is it structured in chapters that describe several battles from that period or the timeline ?
7. Did you enjoy it ?

1. Does the book Operation Zitadelle and Operation Bagration ?
+
6. What does it describe ? Is it structured in chapters that describe several battles from that period or the timeline ?


Book is about: Post Stalingrad situation, Kursk, Post-Kursk, Bagration... And north-sector during that time.


2. Which are the starting/ending dates of the book ? e.g. : 5 July 1943 - 22 June 1944

From unsuccessfull soviet attempts after Stalingrad (early 1942) to June/July 1944.


3. Are there any pictures from the battles ?

Something like 80 photos in 40 pages, couple of those are colour photos.


4. Any maps too ?

40+ small mostly local maps/drawings/whatever you call them.


5. Is it fully detailed when talking about divisions, regiments, corps, battalions, ... ?

What do you mean by "fully detailed"? It's a book about battles, not book about units/formations. Units are mentioned when they are significant to the story/situation.


7. Did you enjoy it ?

I do like his books, this one is easily in the top 25% of WWII related books.

It explains the bigger picture, and then zooms in the large battle, and then into a smaller battles inside that large battle, and details couple of individual level experiences. Somebody might say it's a pro-german book, but aren't most books in the west.
