In a lot of the AAR's I see people mention where they units are compared to where they were in reality.

Can anyone recommend a reference book like that?

I've read different accounts, but never anything detailed enough to know where one Army or Division was in relation to the others.

I thought Glantz's book "When Titans Clashed: How the Red Army Stopped Hitler" was very good. Its told more from the Soviet perspective, but it gives details and locations of various units when discussing different phases of the war.

Feldgrau has info on where units were and when I used it to assign new divisions to their historic army groups.
