  • Highly Recommended WWII Eastern Front Read

    I'm currently reading Fighting In Hell The German Ordeal on the Eastern Front which is taken from a collection of books written by ex-Heer officers for the US Army. Despite some bias (though not much) it offers some interesting insights into the Russian Armed Forces at the time. Really they come off in a respecting tone and that was one of the problems of the German Army that they overestimated the Russians in so many ways.

    Great book...head over to the WW2 section & I posted my "must" reading list for the German Side on Wodin's thread.
    The muffled drums sad roll has beat the soldier's last tatoo. No more on life's parade shall meet that brave and fallen few.
