ZHITOMIR-BERDICHEV: GERMAN OPERATIONS WEST OF KIEV
                                     24 DECEMBER, 1943-31 JANUARY, 1944. VOLUME 2

by Stephen Barratt







This is the second volume of a two-volume set which comprise a detailed history of the important operation that was the beginning of the liberation of western Ukraine. On 24 December 1943, the Red Army launched the first of a series of winter offensives against the German Army Group South under von Manstein, the overall object of which was to liberate western Ukraine from occupation. Based on the unpublished records of the German 1st and 4th Panzer Armies, and supplemented by comprehensive mapping and order of battle data, this book provides a detailed, day-by-day account of German operations as they developed in response to the Soviet offensive. It also provides a vivid insight into the planning and decision-making of the German Army field commands in conducting a mobile defence plus a series of counterattacks which could do little more than provide a temporary respite. This volume describes events from 10 to 31 January 1944 and details the counterattacks undertaken by the Germans as they tried desperately to stabilise the situation. By the time the last of these was drawing to a close, the conditions had already been established for the next major Soviet offensive in the region: the Korsun' pocket. The book includes appendices which provide order of battle detail for both sides, and comes with a separately bound book of 254 daily situation maps in colour.
