Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book covers the high command, the developments in unit organisation, the campaigns and the uniforms and equipment of the German Army in the last two years of the war in North-West Europe and Italy. Despite the huge pressure of fighting on three fronts, ever-worsening shortages of manpower and equipment, and Allied command of the skies, Germany's decimated divisions fought on with impressive skill and determination. This period of World War II (1939-1945) also saw a fascinating mixture of obsolescent, newly designed, and field-made combat clothing which gave the German soldier a radically different appearance from his predecessor of just five years before.

Synopsis:

From Sicily into Italy, and from the beaches of Normandy across France and into the heart of the Reich, the Germans resisted with dogged determination. Despite disastrous defeats, they proved tenacious in defense and bold in attack. This volume details the units of the Wehrmacht that fought in the West, and the text is supported by tables and charts detailing rank insignia and unit organization, as well as eight stunning color plates showing the uniforms and equipment of these remarkable men.
