The Polish city of Poznan had been occupied by the Nazis since 1939 and during the years of the war, it was transformed into a fortress. With the war nearing its end, the battle around Festung (fortress) Posen in January 1945 would be one of the most intense played by a late war German panzer unit. The authors have dug through a large number of sources from both sides and have developed upon previous analyses, coming to a definitive conclusion on how German armour coped in a very difficult situation

Verdict: A great groundup analysis of one of World War Two’s more forgotten engagements during the final year of the war.
