Death of the Leaping Horseman : The 24th Panzer Division in Stalingrad Hardback
The gripping book about a panzer division and its battles in the shattered streets of Stalingrad.
In Death of the Leaping Horseman, the untold story of 24.
Panzer-Division's savage fighting on Stalingrad's outskirts and in the devastated ruins of the city itself is revealed in a detailed day-by-day account.
Beginning in the heady days of the victorious march toward Stalingrad in August 1942, the book follows the division into Stalingrad's suburbs as it is slowly and inexorably sucked into the fiery crucible that was Stalingrad.
Panzer losses and casualties increased daily until finally, after three months of draining combat, the division was reduced to a battle group consisting of a couple of panzers and a few hundred men.
