Death of the Leaping Horseman

The gripping book about a panzer division and its battles in the shattered streets of Stalingrad. In Death of the Leaping Horseman, the untold story of 24. Panzer-Division's savage fighting on Stalingrad's outskirts and in the devastated ruins of the city itself is revealed in a detailed day-by-day account. Beginning in the heady days of the victorious march toward Stalingrad in August 1942, the book follows the division into Stalingrad's suburbs as it is slowly and inexorably sucked into the fiery crucible that was Stalingrad. Panzer losses and casualties increased daily until finally, after three months of draining combat, the division was reduced to a battle group consisting of a couple of panzers and a few hundred men.

This is an excellent read with an incredible amount of material included; this is a 'one-stop-shop' for those wanting to know about the battle of Stalingrad. * Scale Military Modelller Magazine 05/07/2015 * The quality of this book as a reference and a history is simply outstanding ... I highly recommend this book for anyone wishing to better appreciate the nature and conditions of the war in Russia and, more specifically, within Stalingrad. * War History Online 25/03/2015 * Another one for military historians and students - though people who enjoy real-life combat accounts will also lap it up. I can't comment on the historical accuracy, but I can say that this is a thrilling account of one of the main thrusts of the allies into the Russian heartland. Stirring stuff. * Books Monthly 30/01/2015 *
