  • Help with book: Battle for Berlin: Final battle of the Great Patriotic War

    I found a copy of a book in Russian, called Battle for Berlin: Final battle of the Great Patriotic War. It's part of a series on the war with Germany. Has anyone read it? Is it worth looking for other titles in the same series?

    Thanks

    If so, this is a series of research works of the General staff devoted to a set of battles. I myself have the same kind of books for the MOscow and Kursk battles and some others.
    I think it's good enough study containing many useful info.
    However, modern edition of it contains battle schemes in black and white, while original maps were in color. I bought a rare edition of the Berlin operation study book with album of schemes in color. I'm silent how much money it cost me, but now I'm happy to have it in my library

    Also draw attention many archival materials for the Berlin operation is now available on podvignaroda site.
