Franz Kurowski - Große Schlachten des Zweiten Weltkrieges - Buch
This book reads like a parcours ride through the history of World War II; for the author concentrates his attention on 25 dramatic battles that stand out from the general warfare: the conquest of Eben Emael by paratroopers in 1940, the Battle of Britain in 1940, the 3-week campaign to defeat Greece in 1941, the fight in the cauldron of Demjansk 1942, the battle of the mountain fighters for the Caucasus in 1942, the largest convoy battle in the Atlantic in 1943, the Battle of the Ruhr in 1943, the battle and sinking of the "Tirpitz" in 1944, the Battle of the Bulge in 1944, the defense of the Wroclaw fortress and the rescue of millions of Germans Refugees over the Baltic Sea in 1945 as well as 14 other battles and companies. In addition to the factual representation of the military events, the author always focuses on the people who fought bravely, were wounded or died - whether by the bullet on the battlefield, suffocated in the buried air-raid shelter or drowned in the icy waters of the Baltic Sea.
