Verlorene Siege
Verlorene Siege
By Generalfeldmarschall Erich Von Manstein
Athenäum, 1955, 664 pp

An important work in military history, not only for the German campaigns of the Second World War but for a general study of military planning, strategy and tactics. Field Marshal von Manstein, an exceptionally able staff officer, played an important rôle in the Polish and Western operations and later as commander of Army Group South on the Russian front.
