I think you are going to be pleased with the particular book. With Tali - Ihantala it does indeed go through the battles day by day. When it comes to Ilomatsi battle, the book does go through it with great detail, although the chain of events get explained in separate chapters presumably due to overlapping events making basic day by day method too complicated. In addition of going through the battle events the book contains excellent maps (which you may already have) and personal histories of commanding officers. The notable thing that it has and that are missing from the older Finnish books is, that it typically has also accurate info about Soviet losses, since authors had access to Russian archives.Teemu S wrote: ↑17 Aug 2018 13:07I'm thinking of buying Ari Raunio's (et.al) Jatkosodan torjuntataisteluja 1942-1944, but before I do I'd like to know if anyone who might have the book could tell me how detailed the battle descriptions are? Are battles such as Tali-Ihantala or Ilomantsi described in a day to day fashion? I already own Sotatoimet - Suomen sotien 1939-1945 kulku kartoin, but I am looking for a similar book that goes in more detail.
