We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.

What about some Heinz Konsalik buy 3 or 4 though or even kostov .. Pure fiction but good for a giggle.
A big thanks to Dave Sandgroper for his recommendation! Agent Zigzag was an amazing book !

Cheers Nick! I'm glad you liked it mate, I reckon it's a fantastic read too!
If you like Ambrose, Citizen Soldiers is good, or Pegasus Bridge. Beevor's Crete, or Berlin are also worth a read. In fact anything Beevor. I am reading his Stalingrad again at the moment and it is epic. Len Deighton's Blitzkrieg is also great.
I agree with you mate, Antony Beevors books are really good, I've got Crete, Berlin and Stalingrad and have enjoyed all three.
Most of the stuff by Tony Le Tissier is pretty good!....
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
As recommended above, Anthony Beevor's 'Berlin-The Downfall' and 'Stalingrad' are gripping.
It's been a while since I read it, but " In Deadly Combat", by Gottlob Biederman was very good. He was an infantry officer on the Eastern Front.
I just finished "Angriff" by Jason Mark, a detailed photo history of the attack on Stalingrad, and enjoyed it very much. It's expensive, though.
Oh, almost forgot; "Stuka Pilot", by Helmut Mahle. He was one of the early stuka "aces."
