Goering clearly promised the aid without consulting any of his aids and with out knowing whether it was possible or not. Manstein has a couople of bios out, I justread one that wasnt that interesting for me. Paulus, I havent seen any specific, he may be in a complilation biography and I have seen a couple of Zhukov that was okay, but again not what I was looking for. I would try amazon for Ebooks. As far as Mansteins memoir, like Guderians second book, it is very self serving in that both say I was always right and everything was all Hitlers fault.
