Editorial Reviews


"Jacobsen is a brilliant story-teller."
Solgunn Solli, Altaposten

"Miracle at the Litza is written with presence and suspense and takes the reader on a tour-de-force of the battlefield."
Guri Hjeltnes, VG

“Miracle at the Litza proves to be an outstanding book about an interesting subject. It becomes the go-to resource in English on Operation Platinfuchs, and stands as one of the best new books of 2017.”
Stone & Stone Second World War Books

“Authors Jacobsen and Stewart provide thrilling and detailed information about Hitler's first defeat on the eastern Front, and the entire book reads like the premise for a new blockbuster film. An amazing tale, mde all the more enthralling by the fact it remained untold for more than three quarters of a century.”
Books Monthly

“The author does a good job of weaving the various parts of the thread together; German feuding, Britain’s concern that the Russians might collapse and the Soviet Union’s vulnerability to Stalin’s delusions.”
Army Rumour Service

Miniature Wargames

"Jacobsen’s analysis and presentation of this previously underrepresented aspect of Operation Barbarossa is a nuanced, balanced and thoroughly readable work. Highly recommended."
Chris Buckham, Australian Naval Institute
