"Packed with black and white photographs, this book is broken down
into eight chapters including 'Hungarian Turning Point', Skorzeny's
Panzerfaust', 'SS Trapped in Budapest' and 'Tolbukhin's
Masterstroke'. In typical Tucker-Jones style there is no holding
back with casualty and burial photographs and scenes of shattered
Budapest are ten a plenty. They are all part of the story, but
there is also no shortage of good shots of German, Hungarian and
Soviet military vehicles, both in service and out as well as good
studies of soldier's cold weather gear which was essential for all.
No shortage of inspiration for diorama lovers and a great general
reference for the modeller and historian alike, the many scenes
within this book, will prove very useful to all. Highly recommended
and thanks again to Pen & Sword for our copy."--Military
"As with the other Images of War books, the pictures are key. Here many reveal men, vehicles and urban combat revealing details of makeshift armour, camouflage, and destruction. Those alone will make this book a welcome addition to many modelers' references."-- (03/01/2017)
"In sum, this is a really nice collection of photos. Many of the subjects of the photos just aren't easily available elsewhere and especially not in an English-language book... Recommended for Beginner to Advanced builders."--AMPS
