However, Stalin was unaware that the Germans were planning their own riposte at Kharkov, known as Operation Fredericus. When Timoshenko began his offensive in May , he did not realize the limitations of his own forces or the agility of the Germans to recover from setbacks, all of which contributed to one of the Red Army greatest defeats of World War II. The German victory at Kharkov also contributed to the Wehrmacht's ability to push to the Volga River, once the Red Army was seriously weakened along the Donets.

This volume will pay particular attention to intelligence and logistics issues, as well as how this campaign served as a prelude to the battle of Stalingrad. It will also focus on the nascent development of the Red Army's tank corps and 'deep battle' tactics, as well as the revival of the German Panzertruppen after Barbarossa. Get A Copy.

Start your review of Kharkov The Wehrmacht strikes back. Jun 04, John rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction , history , wwii. I've been interested in the history of the 2nd Battle of Kharkov since the late 90s when I came across David Glantz' analysis of the Soviet General Staff's post-war study of the campaign.

Aside from that book though, there's not much available on the subject, so when I saw that Osprey had put out this book I got it immediately. One of the most potentially useful bits for me is that the author managed to find German operational tank strength for 12 May at the start of the battle. I spent some I've been interested in the history of the 2nd Battle of Kharkov since the late 90s when I came across David Glantz' analysis of the Soviet General Staff's post-war study of the campaign.

I spent some effort a few years ago trying to determine this back when I was doing some wargaming of the period, and had only been able to find post-battle strength reports to the level of detail that the author has provided here. Based on the "further reading" section at the end of the book, it appears that the author has used German primary sources as his main reference, relying on Glantz' book for the Soviet perspective.

The result is a well written treatment of the battle that I'm glad to have in my collection. The only knock against the book is one that is common to all Osprey books: a lack of citations. I'd really like to know where the author got those tank strength numbers. I assume it was one of the German primary sources, but it would be nice to know for sure. Jun 08, Mike rated it liked it.

I prefer personal accounts, but this gives a good succinct overview of the campaign. Feb 15, Bruinrefugee rated it liked it Shelves: owned. Does a nice job outlining what happened in this important prelude to the Stalingrad campaign.
