Excellent coverage of little known aspects and facts of slaughter on eastern front and causes of German loss. It wasn't just the winter weather as commonly believed by Americans.

Amazingly detailed account of the World War II Eastern front and the Battle of Kursk. The first part of the book goes into the circumstances that led to Kursk, and the second part goes into fine detail on the actual battle. The numbers of soldiers, aircraft and Tanks involved in this battle is staggering. I had no appreciation before reading this of how large this battle really was, and what the impact of the battle had on the rest of the war in that theater. The author presents the battle from both perspectives, even ending the book with a meeting of infantry soldiers from both sides that fought there. The battle essentially pitted technology & tactics versus numbers and the capacity to produce replacement weapon systems.
Without having a really good understanding of the army components for each of the combatants prior to reading this, some of the information I found to be a little too in depth. I think that people who are familiar with the battles of the eastern front will find the book fascinating.
The narration was excellent.
