Marquo -

I think you are correct. Beevor writes more to the mass audience - or at least the books that get to the US are targeted that way. Many of Glanzt's books and articles are "university press" - or at least started that way. These usually run about 1,000 volumes or less and are targeted for the hard core fan interest or a researcher. Small runs, published without a lot (if any) staff support (like editors) and usually not well circulated.

Due to Glanzt original research, a lot of his stuff - even though still published by the university press - runs a lot higher runs. He's just struck a "hot spot".

I suspect both Beevor's and Erikisons volumes sold at least was well as Glanzt best - and Erikison much better if I had to bet. Beevor usually doesn't have much to interest me due to his target audience; Glanzt does but he's hard to read and many times boring. Erikson, when I first read him, was excellent (its been awhile).

OK turtlefang, you're driving me crazy...you seem very intelligent and reasonable, but it is GLANTZ, not GLANZT.

Whew, had to get that off my chest...

Erickson's books were based on interviews he conducted with the Soviet commanders and staff. They are excellent for any WITE player because they detail the war from the Soviet army level - exactly as covered by this game.

If that drives you crazy, don't raise teenage boys or your in for a long, rough ride.

I'll try to do better, don't want anyone to lose sleep at night because I don't pay attention.
