I’m looking for a good book that covers the Eastern Front in WWII.
Ideally, the book:
- Covers the entire Soviet-German conflict, '41 to '45, rather than a single campaign (i.e., something that does not focus just on the siege of Leningrad, the battle for Stalingrad, Kursk, etc.)
- Covers the campaign in some operational detail, rather than just a strategic/grand strategic overview
- Is not just a personal memoir of an indivudual combatant, or a unit history (although if you know of something really exceptional, then by all means recommend it)
- Has some color or flavor, not dry as dust; an enjoyable read
Does such a creature exist? Or am I asking too much?
