This is the sixth and final volume in an exquisite new series of collector-quality photo books by RZM Publishing. Embracing an esthetic seen only in high-end art photography books, RZM presents over 28 rolls of newly discovered combat film shot by six Waffen-SS Kriegsberichters (War Correspondents) during the renowned East Front battle of Kursk, July 1943. In addition to being an invaluable visual reference for all students of military history, this poignant six volume series focuses on the pure human experience of the frontline infantryman, a subject too often eclipsed by the grandeur of the political and military landscape of the Second World War.
Printed on deluxe European semi-matt art paper for unparalleled photographic reproduction, each page literally "pulls" you into the images, making you feel as though you are a part of the action. This documentary style series presents the photographs in the actual sequence in which they were taken, creating a visual diary unlike anything previously published on the subject.
"Waffen-SS Kursk 1943, Volume 6, by Remy Spezzano, is part of an astounding series devoted to photographs of the largest tank battle in history. The publisher has every right to be proud of this series: Using 28 rolls of recently discovered combat film, it has assembled a collection of unique, informative, and evocative images."

"Like all of the books in this archive series, the picture and captions are interesting. The pictures transfer the feelings of the battle as best has any I have seen."
