Just reading abit about this in my book on the French Normandie-Niemen squadrons. Can't believe I don't know anything about such a huge battle. I understand intial Soviet reports mentioned 20 000 German POWs, in fact there were 92 000 +. 42 000 German soldiers died there as well as 45 000 + Soviet dead. Been looking at this on wiki. Battle of KÃ¶nigsberg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Is there a decent book on it? Is this any good? KONIGSBERG 1945. THE ANNIHILATION OF HITLER'S FORTRESS CITY --- Helion & Company Limited Anyone been there on a battlefield tour. I did a forum search & couldn't find anything. As I say, a massive battle & I don't know a thing about it.
