A nice setting straight of accounts of the celebrated Russian mission to disrupt the German airlift into Stalingrad, emphasizing that while the operational objective was achieved there were still failings in terms of command & control and logistics at this stage of the capabilities of the Red Army. One also comes away with respect for the Soviet commander Vasily Badanov, who proved able to handle an independent command in terms of trying to complete the mission when having really reached the culmination point a little short, and then salvaging what could be salvaged when the inevitable German counter-attack arrived.
