One of the texts written by German POW officers. 698 pages.

Might be pretty interesting.
Book Description

As the title says, this massive report is on the horses used by the German Army - especially in the Russian Campaign. It is exhaustive and shows that although the German Army had a reputation for Blitzkrieg and rapid moving tank spearheads, everything that followed moved at the pace of the horse. The report was written by Burkhart Mueller-Hildebrandt, a cavalry officer pre-war who became a successful Panzer General during the Second World War. The book will suit all military historians as well as vets and others interested in the horse. Accompanied by many analyses.
