Self-Publishing Military History Books – WW2 – Russian Front – Soviet Army Studies
My first book, The 64th Army at Stalingrad, is now live on Amazon.com, Paperback or Kindle Version.
My book covers the Soviet 64th Combined Arms Infantry Army before, during, and after the Battle for Stalingrad, from 1942 to 1943. This is a day-by-day account of the battles of the 64th Army at an operational level.
This true story of the 64th Army is the first extensive English Language account of a Russian/Soviet army during World War II. Other English Language publications might touch upon actions of individual Russian armies and events, but none, as far as I know, cover a single army in depth, let alone a detailed study during a 15-month period. The significance of this approach allows the reader to follow a historically important army from its formation, commitment to battle, and struggle to the end of the battle for Stalingrad.
Most English Language books covering Stalingrad tell the story mainly from the German point of view. By making extensive use of newly released historical documents from the Russian Ministry of Defense’s TsAMO archive, my work provides a refreshing other-side-of-the-hill point of view. This approach complements existing research and publications, thus more fully completing the historical narrative. Additionally, 32 original maps and 2 figures clearly illustrate the ebb and flow of this great battle. Also, an assortment of 21 photos, some never before published, only adds to the unique look and feel of this book.
