The Planning And Preparations of the Battle of Kursk: Volume 1. The first volume of a projected two-volume set takes a close look at the condition of the German and Soviet forces following the winter campaign. Analyzing first the German side, the author demonstrates that the Germans were in a woeful condition, especially with respect to the number of serviceable armored vehicles and the lack of infantry. Examines the German plans for the summer of 1943 and the process of rebuilding its forces. The data shows that the Germans struggled to replenish Army Group South and Model's Ninth Army in the north. The latter was also hampered almost right up to the launching of Operation Citadel by the need to conduct a major anti-partisan operation in woods and thickets in the German rear with divisions earmarked for Citadel. Also examines the Soviet side and discusses the planning for the summer campaign, including the decision to adopt a defense of the Kursk salient and create a multi-echeloned system of defense (though incomplete in depth). Demonstrates that the Red Army was able quickly to replenish its forces and create a large mobile reserve, the Steppe Front. Includes 79 black-and-white illustrations, 39 tables, and seven color maps. $60.00 USD
