  • News Isaev's book about Stalingrad

    Here is the FREE link on Isaev's book about Stalingrad battle (in Russian)

    http://militera.lib.ru/h/isaev_av8/index.html

    Very good, as usually

    He mentions Order #181 by Minister of Defence Serdiukov according to which ALL the data about WWII became OPEN!!!

    New Stalingrad Book

    I found this book about a week ago and have been translating parts of it.

    I agree it's very good and gives ration strength data for Divisional and in some cases Brigades units within the 62th, 64th, 1st Tank Army and so on.

    If you are studying the battle of Stalingrad this is a must read.

    I wish there were more books like this one.

        Retired Colonel David Glantz has been doing a lot of research on the Stalingrad battle and the German 'Blau' Operation leading up to it for at least the past two years. He is giving a set of lectures on Stalingrad at this year's ORIGINS and HISTORICON gaming conventions this summer in the USA. I highly reccommend them, because he has gotten access to individual divisional and brigade daily unit status reports for many of the Soviet units in the Stalingrad battle, in addition to Army orders, directives, reports, etc. It looks at first glance as if Isaev got access to some of the same material, so if you want it in English, try to make it to one of those two conventions. I'll be there, and I plan to ask him specifically if his Stalingrad research is in the 'pipeline' yet to be published.

          Isaev used 6th Army War Diary with appendices:

          http://dr-guillotin.livejournal.com/44790.html#cutid1

          Ibid, You can see the Stalingrad Front War Diary

          P.S.
          It is Isaev's livejournal - http://dr-guillotin.livejournal.com/

            I actually spoke to David about this topic via e-mail a few days ago. I noticed that Helion was putting out a new volume by him which encompasses the Stalingrad period and was wondering what it was all about. He said that they've apparently taken his volume 4 of his 'forgotten battles' series and this is a 'cleaned up version'. In regards to his, now trilogy, on Stalingrad, he estimates we might see the first volume in print next spring.

                    Glantz's study was to be in two volumes and he is writing the second volume this year, according to his Christmas card. However, it sounds like Kunikov has an update.

                      Sorry for the late reply, but yes, specifically David said volume one would encompass 28 June - 3 September 1942 and is 500 pages while volume two would be from 3 September - 18 November 1942 and is 600 pages. Volume has yet to be written, so it'll be a while until we see it.
