"Photo coverage of the German recapture of Kharkov in early 1943 ... Most of the exceptional photos have never been published before or are rare. They showcase the German armor, uniforms or other equipment and many are full page. They take the reader through the many small actions across the Russian countryside and small villages, culminating in the street fighting for Kharkov in March of 1943. The 32 pages of artwork from Mr. Restayn reflect ... the various German and Russian vehicles and aircraft which were employed in the fighting"--Page 4 of cover.

Noted Ranger historian Robert W. Black turns his attention to a trio of the Confederacy's--and America's--most infamous raiders and cavalrymen: John Singleton Mosby, John Hunt Morgan, and Nathan Bedford Forrest. Combining speed, mobility, and boldness, these three soldiers struck critical blows against the Union during the Civil War, including Morgan's notorious 1863 raid that penetrated farther north than any other uniformed Confederate force. While not overlooking their flaws, Black believes these men revolutionized warfare and sees them as forerunners of the Rangers and Special Forces of the modern era. About the Author: Robert W. Black, a retired U.S. Army colonel, is a member of the Ranger Hall of Fame and a combat veteran of Korea and Vietnam. His other books include The Battalion (978-0-8117-0184-6), Cavalry Raids of the Civil War (978-0-8117-3157-7), and Rangers in World War II (978-0-8041-0565-1). He divides his time between Florida and Pennsylvania. 20 b/w photos
