"Robert Forczyk's Tank Warfare on the Eastern Front 1941-1942: Schwerpunkt is an excellent analysis of the first 18 months of armored warfare on the Eastern front during the Second World War.

Quite agree. Excellent book. Well researched and well written.

The author is not shy to give us his analysis and conclusions, so it is more than a dry recounting of statistics and timelines and maps. But his analysis is always accompanied by the facts from his research.

The follow-on (second in the series) is equally good.
