Might make an interesting companion with David Glantz's "Red Storm Over The Balkans: The Failed Soviet Invasion of Romania, Spring 1944" which covers the April-May time period.

Another book to add to my wishlist :)

Wasn't the battle of Jassy a smashing German defensive victory that stabilized the Balkan front for months? Is this The Twilight Zone version?

The battle in August 44 certainly was not a "smashing German victory". Perhaps you refer to the earlier battles? One major offensive failed in June.

The first battles for Iasi (Jassy) were in May and covered in Glantz's book. This book covers the operations at the end of August some 3 months later. So, as I said, might be a great companion.

@ Puster and Marc: yes, you are right. I was not aware the soviets tried their luck in the same place 3 months later.
