During the battle (Second Battle of Târgu Frumos), Hasso von Manteuffel, commander of the Grossdeutschland division, first encountered the new Soviet Stalin tank, "It was at Târgu Frumos that I first met the Stalin tanks. It was a shock to find that, although my Tigers began to hit them at a range of 3,000 metres, our shells bounced off, and did not penetrate them until we had closed to half that distance. But I was able to counter the Russians' superiority by manoeuvre and mobility, in making the best use of ground cover."[10] Manteuffel also noted that the Stalin tanks had several "disadvantages: slow, not manoeuvrable enough; as well, in my opinion their crews were not sufficiently familiar with the tank."

This sort of clear, sober, report-writing is nice to read.

>twitter trannies get mad when stuff like this is used by Mark Felton or other historians as it's somehow irrelevant or "glorification" of nazi Germany despite being matter of fact and simply recounting the order of battle
