    Im looking for book recommendations on a variety of subjects, any advice on which ones to get would be appreciated. Im looking for books that are historically accurate and not dull to read, but still informative on these subjects:

    --The collapse of Army Group Center in 44
    --Initial successes of Barbarossa
    --German infantry and tank tactics with pictorial examples.

    From reading on other threads I think im going to buy Tank Killers and am waiting on a review of Grenadiers my Panzer Meyer, but ther then that Im looking for some good reading material this summer.

    Hello Gibson, do you live anywhere near a Barnes and Nobles bookstore? I ask because they have several great new books in stock on what you want.

    For instance: Stalingrad, By Anthony Beevor

    The Last Days of Berlin

    One by James Lucas which is pretty good and I think its called: The collapse of Nazi Germany, or something like that.

    There is another good book on Stalingrad, called: Stalingrad. I don't remember what the authors name is.

    Another good book about tactics, is: The German Soldier in ww2.

    Ospreys book on the Kursk battle, is well done.

    I know of other great titles, but do not recall their names. I will try to remember to write them down for you and post them here.

    PS: "Tank Killers" is a good book, but I just wished it had more individual histories with indepth writing on the actions involved. The descriptions are just a sketch, and should have been longer.

    The person you will see a color photo of and who wrote the forward to the book, Prof. Dr. Bodo Spranz, just sent me his reply on his service and command of a Battalion of Sturmgeschutzes. If you would like to write to him--let me know, I have his address.
