Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tanks and infantry working together made the German blitzkrieg as successful as it was. This book focuses closely on the infantry component of that powerful alliance, showing German infantry warfare as it evolved as such a powerful force beginning in 1939, only to fail and face defeat in 1945.

German Infantry in World War II examines the organization and strength of the German infantry forces that took part in each major German campaign launched during the war, from the first thrust into Poland through the Bulge to the last stand, the Battle for Berlin. In particular, veteran military historian Chris Bishop describes the great sieges: Stalingrad, Leningrad, Sebastopol, Budapest, and Berlin. He details the infantry forces used during each campaign, giving strengths and orders of battle for the formations involved, along with maps of the action and an assessment of the role of the infantry forces in each offensive.

Illustrated with photographs of the infantry forces in action, as well as detailed campaign maps, this book is an essential resource for anyone with an interest in the history of World War II in Europe.

Synopsis:

An illustrated account of the infantry role in each major German campaign during World War II, with troop strengths, orders of battle, and campaign maps.
