Well, this has to be the best book on the the Battle For Kharkov available at this time. I already have "Ubootwaffe" and "The Essex Class Carriers" from the same Publishers, so I knew this latest would not disappoint.
The first thing that jumps out at you on opening the book is the huge number of Colour Profiles, 2D, and 3D, of every type of vehicle imaginable, usually from nearby pictures, these must be in every other page, dominating the book. This really gets your attention to go on browsing the book again and again..
The pictures are first class, one can almost feel the bitter cold whilst looking at them, they are so sharp and informative, and the captions remain close to the action, all printed on high gloss paper.
The only minor down side for me, is that the book is printed in both English and German which "halves" the amount of text within, but to be honest it's done in a way which does not intrude at all, halving the page, English left column, German right column, and at the end of the day, it's a book crammed full of pictures, maps, and profiles, with enough text to get you through this winter campaign in a most informative and interesting manner.
This book is a must for everyone interested in the war in the east, and of special interest to modellers, those Profiles are just so awesome, even some with the odd human presence for good measure.....
Such a well rounded book, one could easily need to buy two or three books to get what you have within this huge tome.....
Every time I open this book it's like seeing it for the first time as the pictures and Profiles just seem to go on and on...
