  Topic Description
Posted by: KAL9000 Hi all, judging by the listings on Amazon Canada, we can assume that Osprey is going to do a three-part series of Battle of Stalingrad campaign titles, written by none other than Robert Forczyk. Do you all think they should do the same for Operation Bagration?

The Stalingrad titles would effectively be a hugely expanded/updated rerelease of the old CAM 187 Stalingrad title. Does anyone hope Osprey could do the same for the CAM 47 Operation Bagration title? I think I mentioned this in another thread, but I was thinking that they could do a three-parter along these lines:


Operation Bagration (1): Vitebsk to the Baltics, covering the northern axis of the offensive under Vasilevsky (First Baltic and Third Belorussian fronts)

 

Operation Bagration (2): Minsk to Warsaw, covering the southern axis of the offensive under Zhukov (Second and First Belorussian fronts)


Operation Bagration (3): Lvov-Sandomierz, covering the actions of Konev's First Ukrainian Front in Western Ukraine/Eastern Poland


What do you all think?

That would certainly be awesome and I would purchase those in a Heartbeat!

While I don't doubt  that Dr Forczyk will do an excellent job of these books, I hope he will continue to cover the many lesser-known Eastern Front battles like the up-coming "Velikiye Luki" title. However I expect the greater public familiarity with battles such as Bagration means that these subjects are always likely to get revisited.

I would absolutely like to see this three-parter. Especially if it is written by Robert Forczyk.

I really appreciate all of the replies, everyone. I want to say that if there is a possibility for a rerelease but Mr. Forczyk is too busy with the Stalingrad titles, I wouldn't mind if Zaloga returned to write some or all of the titles. He did well in CAM 047--for me the main attraction of a rerelease would be expanded content by making it multi-volume, and sweet, sweet updated 3D BEV maps using the latest graphics. 


As for less covered Eastern Front Battles, Ive always wanted a Dnieper-Carpathian Offensive title/titles

Both sound good to me. The expanded series and the not so well known titles.
