Synopsis

Objective: the Caucasus! The Luftwaffe Operations in the Southern Sector of the Eastern Front: May - August, 1942 by Marek J. Murawski

An invaluable reference tool containing lists of scores, pilot reports and portraits, colour profile artworks and maps Located on the peripheries of Turkey, Iran, and Russia, and rich in natural resources such as oil, coal and peat, the Caucasus has been an arena for political, military, religious, and cultural rivalries and expansionism for centuries. These resources were immensely important to Hitler and his war effort, especially as the war became global and much of his fuel supply was cut off. By February 1942, the Army High Command had begun to look to the Caucasus to solve its massive fuel shortage problems, and on 5 April 1942, Hitler unveiled his plan now known as Case Blue . Initially successful, the German army was eventually over-stretched by the vast area they had captured, and consequently the offensive was stopped by the Red Army in Chechnya in September during the North Caucasian Strategic Defensive Operation. This impressive, full-colour book examines the role the Luftwaffe played in this ambitious operation, providing ample material for modellers and information on this key campaign for historians and enthusiasts.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

Maggie Crane

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!
