In this new release HITLER VERSUS STALIN: THE EASTERN FRONT 1941-1942, a series of rare photographs of the eastern front is presented covering the early stages of operation Barbarossa.
What makes this book truly unique is the diversity of themes discussed focusing not only on German but also on Soviet armies, armor and artillery. The photographs give the reader a live impression of the war which was rolling on in the eastern front with the multitudes of tank versions and variants, infantry uniforms and artillery involved.
As with all the IMAGES OF WAR series, the captions are lively and rich in detail presenting the reader with a wealth of information about the history and status of the characters and vehicles depicted in the photographs. The quality of the photographs is also extremely good.
This book offers the modeler a decent number of diorama ideas, from marching infantry, to destroyed tanks and ruined buildings. Highly recommended.
