    He uses only secondary sources, therefore the author can only offer a different interpretation on sources used in the previously published works and/or render opinions on alternative actions/decisions for the historical commanders which he does in his conclusion. Probably good overview book for someone looking for a good general read of the battle. Book has good schematics of the battles.

      Checked the author's background. His bio on amazon noted he is an avid reader and history buff. After his college degree, he began a managerial career in automotive industry. He wrote a previous book, "Race to Bastogne". His Bastogne book has a 3-star rating and Prokhorovka 3.5 star.

          Why is it that nothing from this thread turns up in an search?

          For example, searching for Prokhorovka does not bring up this thread.

            Could it be you need a minimum # of posts to use the search function ? Best check with a mod.
