Where the Iron Crosses Grow
In this remarkable work, acclaimed author, academic and ex US staff and armour officer Robert Forcyzk has diligently assembled new research to investigate the intense and sometimes barbaric fighting for the Crimea region in World War II, where first a German and then a Soviet army were surrounded and totally obliterated. This definitive work deals with the many unique characteristics of the conflict, such as the naval and amphibious actions of supply, attack and evacuation. It also explores the historical context of the region and the appalling policies of ethnic cleansing practised by both sides. Featuring over 50 black and white images and maps of the campaign, the volume draws on a wealth of archival and secondary study to examine all the major operations of this immense and terrible conflict.
