This is a "trade
edition" reprint of Campaign 42 so if you have that one don't bother to
read further. If you don't have the
Campaign edition and are interested in the Russian offensive of Summer 1944 that
broke the back of the Wehrmacht, this is the book for you.
As usual with the series it begins with notes on the opposing commanders,
their armies and their plans, plus orders of battle.
The actual offensive and the German efforts to halt it are then described
in fair detail. The book has a lot
of good photographs of the tanks as well as the men - even a Hungarian Turan in
Galicia. The plates seem to be
taken from other Osprey titles but are still worth looking at.
