Overview
-

After the Soviets trapped the German 6th Army at Stalingrad, Field Marshal Erich von Manstein and his Army Group Don orchestrated a dramatic reversal of fortune between November 1942 and March 1943, enabling Germany to regain the initiative on the Eastern Front and continue fighting for two more years. Sadarananda relies on an in-depth analysis of war diaries to piece together the course of this pivotal campaign and shows how Manstein brilliantly anticipated Soviet moves and effectively handled an indecisive Hitler.
