Ask a question about this product

Bridgehead Kurland is the exciting account of the little-known struggles of Heeresgruppe Kurland in the waning months of World War II. Despite six separate attempts by the Red Army, the German forces in the Kurland Bridgehead in the Baltic held out against massively superior forces. Despite revisionist claims by the Soviets after the war, the fighting in Kurland resulted in the pinning of large numbers of forces and, ultimately, an unsuccessful campaign. Once again, Franz Kurowski has brought to life many fascinating aspects of an Eastern-Front campaign that has heretofore received little attention in the West. In addition to providing a strategic overview, including not only the ground forces but also the role of the Luftwaffe and the Kriegsmarine, he provides an intimate “you-are-there” look into much of the fighting.

Hard cover, small format, (6"x9"), 326 pages with 70 pages of photos and 15 pages of maps and illustrations.

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.
