Detailed, informative and clarifying 22. Juni 2014
Von F. Carol Sabin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
As expected, this book, based on a wide range and rarely available Soviet and rediscovered German operational documents, contains the archival supplemental documentary evidence for the volume III - Endgame at Stalingrad, thus achieving an unprecedented degree of precision and clarification in describing the historical reality of this major battle. No doubt, this last tome of Glantz&House “Trilogy” can be used as a reference manual for searchers, as well as a guide for those who want to know the basics of this titanic battle.

At the heart of the book are, in my mind, 20 appendices. The term appendix is somehow deceiving; actually these are genuine chapters of operational history, combining archival documents with skillful analysis, ranging between 12-81 pages. All appendices and other documentary materials support the narrative books of the third volume and authors’ conclusions and judgments. I’ll try a brief analysis of all appendices below.

Appendix (App.) 1 (81 pages) focuses on “Opposing Orders of Battle” at six key dates throughout period 19.11.1942-01.02.1943.
App. 2 (23 pages) is a nice detailing of the Soviet strategic planning and the genesis of plan Uranus. Based on eight extensive excerpts from Stavka’s directives, reports or orders, the authors revealed the chronology of Soviet decision making.

“The Uranus Force and Plan” and “The balance of opposing forces” are presented in the next two appendices (3 with 21 pages and 4 with 12 pages). App. 3 contains eight Stavka combat directives or orders. In my opinion, app.4 is one of the most interesting. No less than 9 tables are showing the evolution of “The Soviet view on the Correlation of Opposing Forces in Operation Uranus”, at different moments between 1956 and 2008. This speaks a lot about Soviet-style in history-manufacturing!

These are followed by app. 5 (50 pages), which is dedicated to “The Penetration battle and Encirclement, 19-23 Nov. 1942”.
“Reducing the Stalingrad Pocket and Forming the Outer Encirclement Front”, 24-27.11.1942 and “Reducing the Stalingrad Pocket and Forming the Outer Encirclement Front”, 28-30.11.1942, are detailed in Appendix 6 and 7.
App. 8 speaks about “Competing German and Soviet Dilemmas” (28 pages), while app. 9 is detailing “The Southwestern Front’s battles along Krivaia and Chir rivers, 1-15 Dec 1942” (20 pages).

App. 10 is devoted to “The Stalingrad’s Front’s Defense against Operation Wintergewitter, 1-19 December 1942” (44 pages), while the next one speaks about “The Don and Stalingrad’s Fronts’ battle for the Stalingrad Pocket, 1-15 Dec. 1942” (36 pages).
“Operation Little Saturn and the Soviet Tormosin Offensive” are both detailed in the next 38 pages of app. 12, while app. 13 provides interesting details about “The end of Wintergewitter and Donnerschlag and the Stalingrad Front’s Kotelnikovo Offensive, 16-31 Dec. 1942” (45 pages).

The situation in “The Stalingrad Pocket, 16-31 Dec 1942” is the subject of app. 14 (29 pages), while “Sixth’s Army’s Situation, preliminaries and the Don’s Front’s Plan, 1-9 Jan. 1943” is debated in app. 15 (13 pages).
The destruction of the Sixth Army is fully detailed in the next 3 appendices (113 pages) and, finally, app.19 speaks about “62nd Army’s Struggle in Stalingrad City, 19.11.1942-2.02.1943”, no doubt, inspired completely from combat journal of this army. This chapter maintains a continuity with volume’s two account of the fighting in Stalingrad.

The “Conclusions” is the last appendix containing just 14 pages. Inside you can discover a chronology of significant actions between 28 June 1942 and 2 February 1943, Red Army’s operations conducted within the context of operation Ring (8 offensives), plus 5 tables with both sides’ losses and German operational tanks at key moments.

Compared with previous books, this one has a very different dedication: “To my lord and savior, Jesus Christ...”
Companion has 54 tactical/operational-level situation maps/sketches; concerning the quality, some are difficult to read, some are sketchy, simple, but few are good (8-10).

Another major pillar of this book is represented by its 50 tables. They provide useful statistical info about casualty rates in selected divisions, Soviet assessments, reports, losses, tonnage delivered in the aerial supply of Sixth Army, reorganizations, etc.
A pleasant surprise it was to see, apart the classic part dedicated to Soviet commanders (8 photos), a very nice collection of 33 b&w photos taken by Stephen Duncan in Stalingrad (Volgograd today), showing current state of different locations/places of the battle (grain elevator, Pavlov’s house, Railroad Station no.1, the entrance to Paulus’s HQs in the basement of the Univermag, etc).

The book concludes with an Index to orders of battle, documents and tables.
Finally, don’t bother about the book’s missing jacket: it’s just a minor minus of a grand masterpiece that you won’t see soon in the near future. The book is recommended mainly for serious students who want more details, careful analysis or clarifications about this titanic battle and are accustomed with authors’ style.

Great work inside a poor book. 11. Juni 2014
Von TruthSeeker - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I finally received the Companion of the Stalingrad Trilogy, and I am disappointed. Again. Same poor maps as in the other volumes. Some of this volume refer to Volume 2, not just Volume 3 as advertised.
No dust jacket as per the remainder of the set. If this is a cost saving measure it is a large negative to the buyer.
I also received Stephen Barratt's latest work in the same package, and on the back cover is a blurb from David Glantz. I suggest Mr. Glantz look inside the book at a professional work with color maps the reader can actually read; the covers of the set match; the work is great.
Now, that said, I have all of Colonel Glantz's works and I appreciate his life's work. I would love to peek into his office to see how he keeps all of his information organized. I congratulate him on the effort.
But, the negatives I mentioned of the actual books drag his effort down.

No dust jacket??? Poor maps. 12. Juni 2014
Von M. Nagle - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I was very mift disappointed with the last volume of David's great study in the battle of Stalingrad. Great order of battle and all sort of figures you need to no but no dust jacket and poor maps are a real let down. I have Barbarossa Unleashed and in the back of the book are great maps you can remove and fold out on a table and see every town and road. There even in color. Maps are 2 sides and are 10.

Purely for research 18. August 2014
Von Thomas Reiter - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This volume is obviously intended for research purposes and I strongly recommend not to buy this work for your reading pleasure--you'll be sorely disappointed!

I'm OK with the absence of a dust-jacket, which I consider purely cosmetic, but was very disappointed to find that there is not a complete, detailed, listing of the contents of this volume. The book consists of 20 appendices, which are listed in the table of contents; each appendix covers a specific topic (eg, Appendix 3: The Uranus Force and Plan; Appendix 4: the Balance of Opposing Forces, Appendix 10: The Stalingrad Front's Defense againast Operation Wintergewitter, etc.). The problem is that each appendix includes many, generally dozens, of individual documents, reports, orders, etc., and there is no complete listing of these specific documents. While there is an index at the back of the book which provides such a detailed list, it only continues through the first few documents in Appendix 13, so almost 8 (out of 20) appendices are not covered.

Presumably this was some sort of printing error, I'd be rather disappointed if the publishers simply decided that the page count was already too high...

This kind of volume is very welcome and useful, but its utility is much reduced by the lack of a complete document index, so I would hope that the publisher and/or author would at least provide a link to a complete index for readers' use.
I am glad I purchased this final volume of the Stalingrad series 5. November 2014

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This volume is not needed to understand what happened at Stalingrad but for someone who wants to be a true student of the battle, this book is invaluable. Additionally, the book show the depth of Glantz's research. The only way to get any closer to the documents shown would be to travel to Russia .and look at the originals! I am glad I purchased this final volume of the Stalingrad series, it helps to truly understand the battle
