Ask a question about this product

A superb photo coverage of the German recapture of Kharkov in early 1943. Most of the exceptional photos have never been published before or are rare.  They showcase the German armor, uniforms or other equipment, many are full page.  Starting in Dec 1942, they take the reader through the many small actions across the Russian countryside and small villages, culminating in the street fighting for Kharkov in March of 1943.  Their panoramic scope will surprise and please all readers. If you enjoy looking at photos of German armor, uniforms, equipment and known personalities, this book is for you.  The 32 pages of artwork from Mr. Restayn reflect his usual superb quality, showing the various German and Russian vehicles and aircraft which were employed in the fighting.  This volume should herald the first of a number of excellent photo albums by Jean Restayn which we will publish in the coming years (at this time he is preparing one on Kursk).

Authoro: Jean Restayn

Hard cover, large format (9"x12"), 454 pages, 32 pages of full-color artwork, 650 black & white period photos, 3 maps.

About Us

J.J. Fedorowicz Publishing went into business in 1983 as Military Book Distributor, selling other companies’ books through the mail. Many of those books were in German, and so during the next few years a number of individuals commented on how it would be nice to see them in English. I investigated the costs and possibilities, and the first book was printed; 400 copies of a 40-page biography on Paul Hausser (how many of you own that one?). This was followed by European Volunteers, the first hard cover and first translation. And here we are now, almost 100 books later, and many more to go.

From the first day, the company’s objective was to provide translations of the very best German-language books covering the German ground forces in WW II and to publish them in a format that would last many years (hard cover, on acid-free paper, with laminated covers). It appears that we have been fairly successful.

Started as a one-man operation by John Fedorowicz, the company grew steadily until more help was needed. Over time, 3 partners came on board and we added Tiger Hobbies as a local outlet for modelers and book buyers. Eventually, as times and economic circumstances demanded, the company has returned to the original owner. However, Sharron, who came on board in 2002 as office manager, has stayed to keep me in line and on target. Ken helps with Tiger Hobbies. So here we are, John, Sharron and Ken - when you call you will get one of us.

Defying the hard economic situation, we plan to publish many more excellent books in the future and to serve your reading and modeling needs for many more years.
