A superb photo coverage of the German recapture of Kharkov in early 1943. Most of the exceptional photos have never been published before or are rare. They showcase the German armor, uniforms or other equipment, many are full page. Starting in Dec 1942, they take the reader through the many small actions across the Russian countryside and small villages, culminating in the street fighting for Kharkov in March of 1943. Their panoramic scope will surprise and please all readers. If you enjoy looking at photos of German armor, uniforms, equipment and known personalities, this book is for you. The 32 pages of artwork from Mr. Restayn reflect his usual superb quality, showing the various German and Russian vehicles and aircraft which were employed in the fighting. This volume should herald the first of a number of excellent photo albums by Jean Restayn which we will publish in the coming years (at this time he is preparing one on Kursk).
