THE STRUGGLE FOR POMERANIA

by Erich Murawski 







The last Defensive Battles in the East. Trapped between the Soviet drive toward Danzig and the Baltic Sea, and the Soviet forces dug in on the Oder River to the west, the military forces and civilian population of Pomerania were almost surrounded. Plagued by Himmler’s incompetent military leadership, a lack of resources, and insufficient forces to defend the province, Pomerania’s people and the soldiers defending them were doomed to suffering, and death or captivity. In addition to providing a broad and sweeping account of the campaign, a number of battles and sieges are described in great detail, culminating with the final withdrawal from Pomerania. The 21-day siege of Schneidemuhl, the German counterattack in operation 'Sonnenwende', the siege of Kolberg, the fighting for Fortress Stettin and the Oder crossings, the retreat across the Oder River, the battle at Greifswald and the withdrawal to the Island of Rugen were major components of the battle. All are described in the book which contains a loose, full colour campaign map.
