Armoured Warfare in the Battle for Budapest
From the end of October 1944, Soviet forces repeatedly attempted to capture Budapest. However, the 2nd and 3rd Ukrainian Fronts only managed to encircle the city by the end of December 1944. German troops, especially the Kampfgruppen of the Panzer and Panzergrenadier Divisions fought effective delaying battles.
Dr. Norbert Számvéber, the author of several books and studies on armoured warfare in World War 2, analyses the fierce armoured clashes in the first phase of the Budapest Operation in detail, based principally on archival sources.
