Reviews - What do customers think about III. Pz. Korps at Kursk?

III Pz Korps At Kursk  Dec 17, 2007
This is an excellent book, full of day to day text and photos on IIIPz Korps (6, 7 and 19 Pz Divs) at Kursk. This Korps held the southern wing of the SS Korps and if they hadn't met such hard resistance they would have been able to protect the SS divisions flank and let the SS drive deep into Soviet territory but such is war and the SS were forced to cover their own flank. Most of the photos I have never seen before. Printed on glossy paper for ultimate quality and in hardback but unfortunately for myself only about 140 pages. Some of the photos are excellent for you modelers out there. The writing is also clear and full of detail on this little written about subject (IIIPz Korps not Kursk itself)If your interested in the battle of Kursk add this to your list.
Good Text & Photo Album of III.Pz. Korps at Kursk  Jul 20, 2007
This book focuses on the role of III Panzer Korps (including 198 I.D., 7.Pz.D, 19.Pz.D, 6.Pz.D, 168.I.D., S.Pz.Abt.503 & the relevant regiments within these divisions) in the battle of Kursk. The author covers the movements, intentions and fighting engagements in each of the above divisions sectors, including the stiff Soviet opposition on a day-by-day analysis over the eight days 5th July to 12th July 1943. The author also draws on the personal experiences from the men that fought there that helps recreate a feel for the battle and conditions that they went through. There are many photos throughout the book that are well researched and captioned in detail including some biographies of individuals. Many of the photos are from two German reporters who were present at the battle and have captured some superb real life images. Also included are several colour profiles of the fighting armour (both German & Russian) that participated in the battle. The author also makes some use of maps, however I found some of them not to be detailed enough to accompany the sometimes detailed text. E.g. the text may describe the fighting for a specific Hill or Village, but these are not located on the map. In conclusion the author shows the Germans were able to inflict tank losses on the Russians in III Pz Korps sector of 7:1. All in all this is a fine book and photo album and the introduction by Guy Sager (author of "The Forgotten Soldier") is a nice touch.
