1944 winter campaign/Vistula-Oder operation

Recommended Posts

Glantz does not have a separate book on the period. "Titans" covers it in 14 pages, at front to army level. Gives an OOB and describes a little of the Russian thinking between the successes in January and the stall from then to March, but pretty high level and thin.

A better treatment in a general history is in Erickson, second volume, chapter 7. He has 100 pages on the January to March fighting, although about a third of it is devoted to the high level politiking among the allies and a bit to the Hungary stuff. It is still 5 times the length and depth of "Titans", and you get typical operational scale narrative from the Russian side (armies and tank corps movements and objective switches, occasional strengths, etc).
