Overall it is an excellent book, at a strategic level describing a
crucial phase of the War. * Army Rumour Service *
The book's strength lies in its operational coverage, including Soviet planning, force ratios, ammunition expenditure, and equipment deemed necessary to break German resistance. * Miniature Wargames - Chris Jarvis *
