I remember in this forum a week or so ago (maybe 3) there was a website that was posted that described the rolling battle for the Seelowe Heights and others. It was quite compelling reading and I was hoping someone could direct me in the proper direction again.

Thanks in advance.

I recently read a really good book called "The Fall of Berlin 1945"(Antony Beevor) that talks about this battle and others. I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. The wierd thing is the main particpants in the Seelow battle are different in this book. In the article it is Manteuffle and Busse versus Konev and Zhukov, while in the book Manteuffle is to the north in charge of 3rd Panzer Army and the attack mainly falls on Busse's 9th Army. Konev is portrayed as subordinate to Zhukov in the article while the book has him south attacking across the Neisse. Also in the book Konev seems to be more of an equal and competitor to Zhukov. I almost feel like in the article the author meant Chuikov instead of Konev.
