News from David Glantz
Colonel Glantz, never one to rest on his laurels, sends news of some of his latest self-published projects (due in July) now that Zhukov's Greatest Defeat is behind him:
The Red Army in 1943: Strength, Organization, and Equipment. (245 pages, including 107 figures). Contains data on the strengths, organization (establishments and TO&Es, [shtat]), and weaponry of virtually all Red Army and NKVD combat, combat support, and combat service support forces, and the Red Army as a whole. Includes data of such specialized forces as NKVD, air defense, chemical, road, railroad, construction, and penal [disciplinary] troops.
Red Army Combat Operations
Forgotten Battles of the Soviet-German War (1941-1945): This new eight-volume series provides detailed coverage and archival documentation related to a wide range of forgotten, covered up, or ignored Red Army operations of strategic or operational-strategic scale. Every volume incorporates numerous hitherto unavailable Stavka directives, front and NKO orders, and transcripts of conversations between Stalin, representatives of the Stavka, and Red Army field commanders. Contains full documentation and a wide range of German and Soviet archival maps and operational summary maps. Each volume focuses on one of the war's eight campaigns as defined by the Soviet General Staff.
