By 1943, after the catastrophic German defeat at Stalingrad, the Wehmacht’s panzer armies gradually lost the initiative on the Eastern Front. The tide of the war had turned. Their combined arms technique, which had swept Soviet forces before it during 1941 and 1942, had lost its edge. Thereafter the war on the Eastern Front was dominated by tank-led offensives and, as Robert Forczyk shows, the Red Army’s mechanized forces gained the upper hand, delivering a sequence of powerful blows that shattered one German defensive line after another.
His incisive study offers fresh insight into how the two most powerful mechanized armies of the Second World War developed their tank tactics and weaponry during this period of growing Soviet dominance. He uses German, Russian and English sources to provide the first comprehensive overview and analysis of armoured warfare from the German and Soviet perspectives.
This major study of the greatest tank war in history is compelling reading.

"The book contains an interesting collection of 27 photos in black and white , good quality despite their small size."

"An objective and neutral view on the end of the war."

By 1943 after the German defeat at Stalingrad, their panzer armies gradually lost the initiative on the Eastern Front. Their combined arms technique which had swept Soviet forces before it during 1941-1942 had lost its edge. Thereafter the war on the Eastern Front was dominated by tank led offensives and, as the author of this new title – the second volume of his examination of the greatest tank war in history - demonstrates, the Red Army’s mechanised forces gained the upper hand, breaking one German defensive line after another.

The writer’s study offers fresh insight into how the two most powerful mechanised armies of WW2 developed their tank tactics and weaponry during this period of increasing Soviet dominance. He uses German, Russian and English sources to provide a comprehensive overview and analysis of armoured warfare from both the German and Soviet perspectives. In all 10 maps, 27 monochrome illustrations, six appendices, notes, a bibliography and an index are also included.
