Blood and Iron: The German Conquest of Sevastopol by C. G. Sweeting
I'm only keeping the book because it is an easy reference. If you haven't bought it, keep it that way. Waste of time and money with nothing new about the campaign and heavily slanted toward the German point of view with NO use of Russian/former Soviet archival information, memoirs, literature, reports, etc (which are just now coming out with many new facts and statistics that the West wasn't privy to before). Only one Russian source is listed as being used in the bibliography entitled "The Great Patriot War of the Soviet Union, 1941-1945" published in 1970.
