Bagration 1944 : The Destruction of Army Group Centre
(Osprey Campaign Series, No 42)
by Steven J. Zaloga
On June 22, 1944, three years to the day after Germany's 1941 invasion of the Soviet Union, the Red Army launched a massive offensive in Byelorussia. Codenamed 'Operation Bagration', this campaign climaxed five weeks later with the Red Army at the gates of Warsaw. The Wehrmacht's Army Group Center was routed, a total of 17 Wehrmacht divisions were utterly destroyed, and over 50 other German divisions were shattered. It was the most calamitous defeat of the German armed forces in World War II.

Blood Red Snow: The Memoirs of a German Soldier on the Eastern Front
by Gunther K Koschorrek
Paperback from Zenith Press
For the German soldier fighting under Hitler, keeping a diary was strictly forbidden. So Gunther Koschorrek, a fresh young recruit, wrote his notes on whatever scraps of paper he could find and sewed the pages into the lining of his winter coat. Left with his mother on his rare trips home, this illicit diary eventually was lost—and did not come to light until some 40 years later when Koschorrek was reunited with his daughter in America. It is this remarkable document, a unique day-to-day account of the common German soldier’s experience, that makes up the memoir that is Blood Red Snow.

The Forgotten Soldier
by Guy Sajer
A classic. Five stars. Some claim it is fictional; howenver, the veracity of the author is attested to in a letter by Lieutenant Colonel Douglas E. Nash
Book Description: This is the horror of World War II on the Eastern Front, as seen through the eyes of a teenaged German soldier. At first an exciting adventure, Guy Sajer's war becomes, as the German invasion falters in the icy vastness of the Ukraine, a simple, desperate struggle for survival against cold, hunger, and above all, the terrifying Soviet artillery. As a member of the elite Gross Deutschland division, he fought in all the great battles, from Kursk to Kharkov. Sajer's German footsoldier's perspective makes THE FORGOTTEN SOLDIER a unique war memoir, the book that The Christian Science Monitor said "may well be the book about World War II that has been so long awaited." Now it has been handsomely republished as a hardcover containing fifty rare German combat photos of life and death at the Eastern Front. The photos of troops battling through snow, mud, burned villages, and rubble strewn cities depict the hardships and destructiveness of war. Many are originally from the private collections of German soldiers and have never before been published. This is a deluxe edition of a true classic.

Hell's Gate : The Battle of the Cherkassy Pocket January to February 1944
by Douglas E. Nash
It was at Cherkassy where the last German offensive strength in the Ukraine was drained away, creating the conditions for the victorious Soviet advance into Poland, Rumania, and the Balkans during the summer and autumn of 1944. Eclipsed by a war of such gigantic proportions that saw battles of over one million men or more as commonplace, the events which occurred along the banks of the Gniloy Tickich river should have faded into obscurity. However, to the 60,000 German soldiers who were encircled there at the end of January 1944, this was perhaps one of the most brutal, physically exhausting, and morally demanding battles they had ever experienced. Thirty-four percent of them would not escape. The Publisher
