Overview
-

• Complete battle report of the actions in Hungary, including the bitter Siege of Budapest

Following the dramatic destruction of Army Group Centre and overshadowed by Koniev’s and Zhukov’s rush on Berlin, this particular theatre of operations in Hungary, 1944-45, including the devastating Siege of Budapest, which was one of the bloodiest sieges of the war, has been substantially overlooked by most historians.

This fully detailed, highly illustrated monograph is a key opportunity to chronicle the full events of these clashes between the Red Army and German and Hungarian troops - whose last convulsions only one month and three weeks before the German capitulation at Reims were definitely the Panzer’s last lunge at the enemy.

REVIEWS

…packed with original photos, maps, drawings and uniform photos…an inspiring book …
Military Modelling.com

… great colour profile photographs of the various aircraft, Amour as well uniforms that the combatants used during this battle for Hungary. There is also an abundance of black & white photos of this period to keep most modelers happy especially if you are into German Armor…. vast amount of interesting images and maps that go along with the outline of this battle…


...definitely recommended as a good summary of this important, but little known, chapter of World War II.
