MEAT GRINDER: The Battles for the Rzhev Salient 1942-43
Examines the four major offensives launched by the Red Army against the Rzhev Salient, all of which were defeated with heavy losses, exceeding two million killed, wounded or missing, until eventually, the Germans were forced to evacuate the salient in March 1943. So many casualties occurred, it was called The Meat Grinder. Drawing on the latest research, the book provides a new study of these horrific battles but also examines how the Red Army did ultimately learn from its colossal failures and how its analysis of these failures at the time helped pave the way for the eventual Soviet victory against Army Group Center in the summer of 1944, leaving the road to Berlin clear.1 vol, 320 pgs 2022 UK, OSPREY PUBLISHING
