Bagration, 1944 : the destruction of Army Group Centre by Steve Zaloga( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On 22 June 1944, three years to the day after Germany's 1941 invasion of the Soviet Union, the Red Army launched a massive offensive in Byelorussia. Codenamed 'Operation Bagration', this campaign climaxed five weeks later with the Red Army at the gates of Warsaw. The Wehrmacht's Army Group Center was routed, a total of 17 Wehrmacht divisions were utterly destroyed, and over 50 other German divisions were shattered. It was the single most calamitous defeat of the German armed forces in World War II."--Jacket

Poland 1939 : the birth of Blitzkrieg by Steve Zaloga( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The German invasion of Poland on 1 September 1939 began World War II in Europe, pitting the newly modernized army of Europe's great industrial power against the much smaller Polish army and introducing the world to a new style of warfare-blitzkrieg. Panzer divisions spearheaded the German assault with Stuka dive-bombers prowling ahead spreading terror and mayhem. This book demonstrates how the Polish army was not as backward as it is often portrayed and fielded a tank force larger than that of the contemporary US Army. Its stubborn defense gave the Germans some surprises and German casualties were relatively heavy for such a short campaign."--Jacket

Inside the Blue Berets : a combat history of Soviet and Russian airborne forces, 1930-1995 by Steve Zaloga( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author has taken advantage of the declassification of Soviet archives to write this accessible, authoritative history of the Soviet airborne forces, or Blue Berets. He clearly establishes Russia's legitimate claim as one of the pioneers of airmobile warfare in the 1930s; but the book's biggest surprise is the coverage of major WWII Russian paradrops-most of which ended in disaster. It wasn't until the Cold War era, he discloses, that the so-called Blue Berets came into their own (as enforcers of the Brezhnev Doctrine, Moscow's interventionist policy toward Warsaw Pact allies), first in Hungary in 1956, then in Czechoslovakia in 1968. Zaloga emphasizes that Soviet airborne forces bore the brunt of the 1979-1988 war in Afghanistan (they were, he says, "the reliable backbone of the Afghan adventure"). Since the demise of the Soviet Union, the Blue Berets have been called on to deal with dissension and revolt in the newly independent republics. Now Russia's main elite combat force, they are, writes Zaloga, well-suited to the kind of low-intensity conflict that is typical of warfare in the late 20th century. -- Publishers Weekly

Lorraine 1944 : Patton versus Manteuffel by Steve Zaloga( Book )

12 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the wake of the defeat in Normandy in the summer of 1944, Hitler planned to blunt the Allied advance by cutting off Patton's Third Army in the Lorraine with a great Panzer offensive. However, Patton's aggressive tactics continued to thwart German plans and led to a series of violent armored battles and the breakout of the American forces. As the battle-hardened Wehrmacht confronted the well-equipped and trained US Army, the Germans managed to re-establish a fragile defensive line but could not stop the US Army from establishing bridgeheads over the Moselle along Germany's western frontier."--Jacket
Operation Cobra 1944 : breakout from Normandy by Steve Zaloga( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most decisive periods of World War II was the 30 days between 25 July and 25 August 1944. After the success of the D-Day landings, the Allied forces found themselves bogged down in a bloody stalemate in Normandy. On 25 July, General Bradley launched Operation Cobra to break the deadlock. US forces punched a hole in the German frontline and began a spectacular advance. As Patton's Third Army poured into Brittany and raced south to the Loire, the German army was threatened with encirclement. By the end of August, German forces in Normandy were utterly destroyed and the remaining German units in central and southern France were in headlong retreat to the German frontier. In this book Steven J. Zaloga explains how the breakout from Normandy came about."

D-Day 1944 : Utah Beach & U.S. airborne landings by Steve Zaloga( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The D-Day landings of 6 June 1944 were the largest amphibious military operation ever mounted. During the late spring and early summer of 1944 the roads and ports of southern England were thronged with the troops, vehicles and ships of the invasion force. The greatest armada the world had ever seen had been assembled to transport the US 1st Army and the British 2nd Army across the narrow strip of the Channel and open the long-awaited second front against Hitler's Third Reich. This book reveals the events of this single day on Utah beach, one of the two US landings."--Jacket
