270 pages; 15 chapters and 1 appendix
Urban Defense: East Front is an e-book that describes the details of
urban defense in ten major cities during WW2. That group of cities
includes three cities controlled by Russians and seven cities controlled by
Germans. Important aspects of both attacking and defending the ten subject
cities are described in
Urban Defense: East Front. As the reader will
discover in
Urban Defense: East Front, the conquest of defended cities in
WW2 typically required a lot of blood, if the defense was adequate. Yet the
facts described in
Urban Defense: East Front have caused the modern
American, British and Canadian armies to shy away from
urban combat
whenever possible. They are dead wrong as usual. The message of
Defense: East Front
to professional soldiers is that urban combat areas
are the best places to fight. If one fights to win, then the
urban combat
offer many possibilities for maneuver. Of course, amateur western
armies fare very poorly in defending or conquering cities since the socialists
ruling the west always favor the enemy over their own military.
Review Table of Contents
“At this time, Stalin eagerly perused intelligence gained from a plane crash carrying the German war plans for the drive to
Stalingrad. That plane crash was an example of the sabotage used by traitors in the German High Command. They pulled
that “crashed plane loaded with German war plans,” trick about 6 times during WW2. Stalin publicly claimed that he
believed the crashed plane carrying the German traitor to be part of an elaborate deception plan. He said that, in order to
deceive the Germans. Stalin, impressed by the ability of German military traitors to convey the latest German plan
changes to him by several redundant routes, immediately started new planning. (Stalin had another ace in the hole. The
6th Army’s commander was a traitor who was part of the Stauffenberg sabotage cabal, General Paulus.) Holding all the
cards in his sweaty meat hooks, Stalin decided to commit the majority of his forces in two major strategic
counteroffensives, one at Rzhev and one at Stalingrad. At about the same time the German High Command, supposedly
seeing the general lack of Russian preparation and little movement of reserve forces to the South, told Hitler that the last
of Russian military reserves were melting away. They sought to convince him that the Russians would not mount a major
defensive effort at Stalingrad and on 19 July 1942, the high command provided the 6th Army with a formal order to
occupy Stalingrad. Yet Hitler continually argued that the Soviet main body of at least two Fronts had not been brought to
decisive combat and remained a threat in being, somewhere to the east of the advancing Germans.”
