Railways, Logistics, and war on the Eastern Front

Post by CarlL »

Spurred by Richard Baber's "more scratch terrain" post elsewhere on forum about railway line terrain pieces, I thought I would post link about the role of railway logistics on Eastern Front, 1941-1945, and its links to earlier Polish Republic birth:

On logitics and railways see "The Influence of Railways on Military Operations in the Russo-German War 1941–1945" by H.G.W. Davie, (2018) at https://www.hgwdavie.com/blog/2018/3/9/ ... r-19411945 - this can feel like a heavy to read essay but is very informative about the role of rear areas and railways in supporting army activity from both German and Soviet Russian viewpoints, and also has some links to how the Polish Republic viewed railways in its struggle from birth to death from 1919 to 1939.

On Polish territorial changes see map at https://msuweb.montclair.edu/~furrg/res ... nline.html which helps understanding of the Polish Gap in railway capacity noted by H.G.W. Davie in their (not sure if author is male or female) 2018 essay above.
