One good thing about this, is it prompted me to go out and buy a couple books. I picked up Antony Beevor's Stalingrad, and Glantz's Clash of Titans.
First thing I notice is that Beevor seems to write at about a high school level of history. (Or history for the masses). Glantz is more a graduate level reference book. With greater detail, I suppose, comes a greater chance of error.
And I notice that Beevor uses these books in his bibliography:
Glantz, David, Soviet Military Deception in the Second World War, London, 1989 ———, The Role of Intelligence in Soviet Military Strategy in World War II, Novato, Calif., 1990 Glantz, David, and House, J. M., When Titans Clashed, Kansas City, 1996
So it seems Beevor at least appreciates Glantz's work.
Very nice :)
About 10+ years ao I got:
When Titans Clashed: How the Red Army Stopped Hitler (Modern War Studies) by David M. Glantz
and to accompany it
Russo German War, 1941-45 by Albert Seaton
