Part of the Ballantine's Illustrated History of World War II.

Quick, factual read.
Jeff Dawson
Excellent work

Once again, Geoffrey Jukes delivers a very compelling tale revolving around one the greatest turning points of World War Two. With pictures and excellent analysis, readers are able to immerse themselves into the greatest conflict of ideologies the Twentieth Century ever witnessed. A great primer for readers who have never read about this battle.

Five stars

Ballantine books was the main source for WW2 books in the 60 & 70s and
this was part of an innovative illustrated series, a godsend to history
fans. The intro is by Liddel Hart to show you they had credentials.

My edition is 1968, have to update GR later. 160pgs w/b&w photos
and ample text telling the story.

Very difficult to read because the presentation of the text is downright awful. A more skeptical take on the fighting.
