Atlas of the Blitzkrieg 1939-1941
This book impresses from the moment you see it, it’s a beautifully bound and printed on very high quality paper! The book is a series of very well detailed maps of the German Blitzkrieg campaigns of the early part of World War two.
The book is split up by each battle front and has detailed maps showing forces locations and make up on all sides. The maps are awesome and the best quality I have seen in a long time. They are not too complicated but give all the information you need to see what the situation was at each point during the campaigns.
The descriptions of the campaigns and each chapter provide a great overview.
The book chapters are:
- Chapter 1: Pre-war Europe
- Chapter 2: The Polish Campaign
- Chapter 3: Soviet Aggression
- Chapter 4: The Scandinavian Campaign
- Chapter 5: The Western Campaign
- Chapter 6: The Air War Over Britain and Germany
- Chapter 7: The Naval War
- Chapter 8: The Balkan Campaign
There are 98 maps in the book which has 217 pages, which shows how many maps are included and I love and learnt from each map I studied. The Naval War Chapter I found to be great and I was impressed with the knowledge that when into this book.
I must say the Maps alone are well worth getting this book for I cannot tell you enough about how impressed I was by these.
The book and especially the maps are fascinating and made me aware of a lot details and information I have never seen on one place before. I really cannot recommend this book enough I really loved the maps and the details shown
